Microsoft introduced WSA (Windows Subsystem for Android) with Windows 11, and its aim is to bring the two operating systems closer together through various integrations. Now, Microsoft has quietly published an update roadmap for WSA that confirms Android 13 support is on the way.
With Android 13, Microsoft wants to add a handful of important new features. It is one of the easiest file transfer between WSA container and Windows. That will be a game changer as file sharing between your phone and PC will be as easy as dragging and dropping.
“Picture-in-picture” probably refers to WSA running in Windows mode like native Windows applications. We don’t know what Microsoft means by this while the “shortcuts” are vague. It may be easier to access certain functions or applications on your phone directly from the PC. Finally, the company is enabling local network access by default.
Note that WSA and its related features are limited to certain markets and a wider release is expected in early 2023. Microsoft recently introduced several updates and new features for WSA such as Print, Location + GPS, Second Display, Microphone. access etc.
