Two days ago, Google announced that from August, the play store began to use AAB format installation package, which is the abbreviation of Android App bundle.
Different from the traditional APK, AAB distributes for different configurations and languages without packaging useless configuration files. Compared with APK, AAB can save up to 15% of the volume and deploy faster.
So some netizens asked, just announced support for Android APK windows 11 will be affected?
At least from the perspective of the Amazon app store that win11 will integrate with, the answer is No. Amazon app store announced that it will add support for AAB distribution.
Previously, Microsoft said that win11's support for Android is mainly realized through the app distributed by Amazon's app store. Of course, win11 can also run APK directly. However, there are some differences between AAB and APK after all, and there is no clear answer whether they can run directly.
From the replacement of APK by AAB, we can find that Google seems to reduce the volume of APP treasure and increase the stickiness of app store, because without complete configuration files, AAB distributed on one machine can not run perfectly on another machine.
- THE END -
