How to use WSATools to install Android apps outside Amazon Appstore on Windows 11

The WSATools makes it easy to sideload Android apps on Windows 11, and here's how to use it.


Although the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) allows you to sideload virtually any Android app on Windows 11, this is still a tedious process because you have to manually install the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) tools from Google, and you have to use different commands to install an application. However, there's an easier way to install apps outside the Amazon AppStore.

If you have to install a specific Android app, you can use the WSATools, a third-party tool that simplifies the sideload process by removing all the extra steps with a simple interface to install any Android app using an APK file.

This guide will walk you through the steps to use the WSATools to sideload Android apps on Windows 11.
