Microsoft plans for 2021: support for Android apps for Windows 10 and x86 emulator for ARM processors

The American edition of Windows Central has published a report on Microsoft’s plans for 2021.

So, first of all, the company is about to release Windows 10X finally. The system will become a lightweight version of the regular OS and compete with Chrome OS and iPad OS. It is planned to be shown in the first half of 2021. The report says Windows 10X will run on budget ARM laptops as well as dual-screen devices. The OS will receive support for Win32 applications, but it will not appear immediately, but in future updates.

As for the usual Windows, it is planned to add support for Android applications. They can be downloaded directly from the Microsoft Store. In what period of 2021 such innovation will appear, there is no information.

Microsoft is also going to launch an x86 emulator. It will allow ARM-based computers to open desktop programs. Shortly, it will be added to test builds of Windows 10 Insider Preview. It will appear in the stable version in 2021.

Interestingly, the report also mentions the launch of a Cloud PC service (from the English “Cloud PC”). It will allow you to “broadcast” Windows 10 to the cloud and install heavy applications to overload the local device.
