Microsoft has released today a tiny update for Insiders flighting Windows 11 builds. And although it's not much, it is still important as it is bringing Android App support to the Windows 11 Release Channel Preview channel. The blog post is just an update over the previous October announcement post for the Beta channel.

Here's what the full announcement of today reads:

The preview of Android™ apps on Windows 11 is now available for Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Channel in the U.S.
