Microsoft is working on high-resolution video streaming for Windows Subsystem for Android


Microsoft recently rolled out Android 13 for Windows Subsystem for Android. Although it is currently rolling out the Windows Insider Preview build and is soon expected to make it to stable build. Ahead of that, Windows Subsystem for Android is getting a new feature that’ll make streaming videos better.
According to a WindowsLatest report, DRM-protected high-resolution support is coming to Windows Subsystem for Android.
Currently, Windows 11 can run a handful of Android apps and services and with the limited selection of apps and games available, things like being unable to play DRM-protected content make it more difficult for users to like Microsoft’s entire idea of Windows 11 supporting Android apps.
However, as always, Microsoft keeps making changes to the WSA to make things better for Android apps on Windows. The latest approach is DRM-protected content support within Android containers. The company has also confirmed that it will enable DRM-protected streaming support in the future.
Now, the exact timeline for the same is yet to be announced by the company. However, with DRM-content support, things will become much better for users. For instance, while watching content via a streaming platform that’s not natively available on Windows 11’s app store.
Windows 11 supports Android apps via Windows Subsystem for Android, a native Linux-based Android emulator baked right into the operating system. Now, the company has been trying to make the entire Android and Windows communication as native as possible and it certainly has a long way to go. But, the deep integration makes it possible for users to download apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+Hotstar, etc and use it on Windows devices.
For those unaware, Microsoft has recently started testing tabs for Notepad. This feature is in beta testing. But, it allows users to open multiple files on a single instance of notepad instead of opening multiple notepads or even closing one before opening a new file.
