This is almost the same version that was released a few weeks ago for people signed up for the Windows Subsystem for Android Preview program, with the exception that the "Updated Chromium WebView to version 117" feature is not available in this build.

If you would rather get the Preview versions of these Android Subsystem builds, you can sign up for the WSA Preview Program from the Microsoft Learn website. Before proceeding, ensure your computer meets device requirements that include a minimum of 8GB of RAM, a solid-state drive, and Virtual Machine Platform support.

Although there are unofficial hacks that let you run Windows Subsystem for Android on Windows 10, the program is officially supported only on Windows 11.
