Microsoft has made the configuration of DoH servers much easier in the recent builds. Since Windows 10 Build 19628.1 it is possible to encrypt DNS queries with DNS over HTTPS over IPv4 and / or IPv6. This not only serves to protect privacy, but also ensures more security.

With only a few or no code changes, developers should soon be able to offer their Android apps not only on Android and Chrome OS devices, but also for Windows 10. According to the inside information of Windows Central , they should be made available in MSIX package format offered via the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft wants to bring Android apps to Windows 10 via Project Latte

Microsoft had already experimented with five years ago to bring Android apps to its operating system. The project, which goes by the code name Astoria, was discontinued a few months after was announced . Microsoft is reviving this plan with Project Latte. It could be operated by the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), says Windows Central. In order to bring Android applications to Windows 10, Microsoft must also provide its own Android subsystem.

Since support for Windows 10 Version 1903 ends, Microsoft has started to automatically update these systems to a newer version .

Microsoft recently announced the first building block for a solid performance of applications that should run via the WSL : WSL will soon support both GUI Linux applications and GPU acceleration offer .

Android apps on Windows 10: Support of Google Play services unlikely

According to the information from Windows Central, Microsoft is primarily aiming with this solution to bring applications that are not available in the Microsoft Store to Windows 10. However, restrictions are to be expected, since many Android applications rely on Google's play services. The play services are proprietary background services at the system level for location data, for login or for push notifications and more. These services may only be installed on certified Android and Chrome OS devices. This means that applications that rely on Google's Play Services API must be updated in order to remove corresponding dependencies before they can be submitted under Windows 10.

The new function is to be introduced in the course of the coming year. Currently, Android apps can only be used via an emulator or via app streaming from Samsung smartphones under Windows 10. Microsoft reportedly plans to create a way to run Android apps on Windows 10 . At least that's what Windows Central reports.

Windows Central reports: Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to bring their Android apps to Windows 10 with little to no code According to sources familiar with the matter, the project is codenamed ' Latte ' and I'm told it could show up as soon as next year.

The situation is similar with current Huawei devices, which are denied access to Google services due to US sanctions. After all, Huawei has implemented alternatives to Google's services - it is questionable whether Microsoft will proceed in a similar way.

It is also questionable how Microsoft intends to optimize Android apps for Windows 10. Because the applications have been developed for smaller screens and touch operation by finger. Many Windows devices lack a touchscreen and the screens are usually larger. Presumably, however, the Android applications will not fill the screen anyway, but will only run in a smaller window, as was previously the case when mirroring an Android device.

Microsoft had already made it clear in recent years that applications under Windows 10 no longer have to run exclusively natively under Windows. Microsoft's operating system relies on numerous app platforms such as PWA, UWP, Win32, Linux (via WSL) - and soon also Android apps. The Android app support should move in with the big autumn update of Windows 10 , according to the leaked plans.

Windows 10X will not be able to be bought, it will only be sold in conjunction with new devices. The target group is primarily business customers and the education sector. But as I said, these are still all assumptions.
