The Amazon Appstore is departing from Windows 11 due to Microsoft’s decision to cease support for the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) by March 5, 2025. WSA serves as a crucial platform for running Android applications on Windows 11. With its discontinuation, the Amazon Appstore will lose its compatibility with Windows devices.

Impact on Installed Apps:

Apps installed from the Amazon Appstore on Windows 11 devices will remain functional until March 5, 2025. While immediate access to these applications should not be affected between March 2024 and March 2025, there might be gradual issues with their functionality over time.

Accessing the Amazon Appstore:

For users who already have the Amazon Appstore installed, accessing it can be done by searching for “Amazon Appstore” in the Windows Search bar. If the Appstore has been uninstalled and needs reinstallation, users can utilize the provided link.

Locating Installed Apps:

Users have two options for finding apps installed from the Amazon Appstore on their Windows 11 device. They can either utilize the Windows search function or navigate to the “My Apps” section within the Amazon Appstore.

Reinstalling Apps:

Between March 2024 and March 2025, users can reinstall previously downloaded apps from the Amazon Appstore. By accessing the “My Apps” section within the Appstore, they can reinstall desired apps by clicking the “Install” option.

Future of Apps:

Following the discontinuation of the Amazon Appstore on Windows 11, apps downloaded from it will no longer be supported on the platform. However, the Amazon Appstore will continue to be available and supported on Fire TV, Fire Tablet, and Android devices.
