BBC Sounds Android app open in Windows 11

Microsoft has released a new update to its Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) to Windows Insiders on all channels. The update, version 2206.40000.15.0, brings input compatibility in apps such as games, networking and windowing improvements, and reliability updates. You can find the full release notes of this new August update below:

What’s New

  • New suite of shims available to toggle in the Windows Subsystem for Android Settings app which enables better experiences in several apps
    • Compatibility for games with joysticks (mapped to WASD)
    • Compatibility for gamepad in games
    • Compatibility for aiming in games with arrow keys
    • Compatibility for sliding in games with arrow keys
  • Scrolling improvements
  • Networking improvements
  • Android minimum window size defaulted to 220dp
  • Improved dialog when unsupported VPN is detected
  • New toggle to view/save diagnostic data in the Windows Subsystem for Android Settings app
  • Security updates
  • General reliability fixes, including improvements to diagnostic sizes
  • Graphics improvements

Sadly, though, the new update is U.S. only for now. The known issues in this new WSA version 2206.40000.15.0 update is the same from last month:

  • Some VPNs may not work with Advanced Networking. If you use a VPN and find Android apps do not have network connectivity, please disable Advanced Networking in the Windows Subsystem for Android Settings app
