Original title: Microsoft Win11 Android Subsystem Update: The bottom layer rises to Android 12L App Prompts integrated into system notifications

IT House May 21 news, Microsoft updated the Win11 system on the WSA (Android-based Windows subsystem) (version 2204.40000.150.0), the system version updated Android 12.1, that is, Android 12L.

Thanks to this, Android apps now integrate better with Windows, and you can now see which apps are using your microphone on the Windows taskbar tray, as well as private information like location.

You can also see prompts from Android apps (integrated into Windows notifications), and Android apps now support The advanced network features of Windows 11, allowing them to connect to other smart devices in your LAN, such as cameras or speakers.

IT House understands that Microsoft has made significant changes to WSA settings in this release, incorporating similar settings and options into groupings for a better experience.

Microsoft has also added a diagnostic data viewer for WSA that contains information about all data collected by the subsystem and disabled optional diagnostic data by default.

Also, for newer insider Preview releases (OS Build 22621+), when your device is out of standby, the Android app doesn't restart, but instead continues from where you left off (presumably referring to a background warm boot).

In other ways, the new version has also upgraded some hardware support, such as support for VP8 and VP9 decoding, and support for the Chromium 100; and the camera app has also received some improvements, even the input device has been paid attention to by Microsoft, and will lead to better mouse wheel support, support for app resizing and arrow keys, and fixed on-screen keyboards and new keyboard appearance.
