Microsoft has released the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) in version 2307.40000.5.0. There were primarily improvements in the graphic interfaces. But the developers have also updated the Android substructure.
In the release notes of the preliminary version on Github, the programmers briefly list the changes in the new version. They have therefore added the Microsoft.Windows.LAUNCH_URI function, which allows apps to be launched in Windows using the protocol. In general, stability improvements have been made to the platform.
WSA update improves graphic interfaces
Furthermore, the developers have implemented the possibility for apps to use the Vulkan API in the preview. The options needed to try this can be found in the Settings app. In addition, the reliability of the graphical output has been improved – but the programmers do not write how this is expressed in concrete terms.
The Chromium WebView component is now included with version 115 – last week Google already released version 116 of Chromium, which was apparently too short for the release now. The Android 13 security updates can also be found in the updated Windows Subsystem for Android version without further details. The latter also emphasizes the release announcement from Microsoft in the Windows blogs. You can find out whether the current version is installed by opening the Windows Subsystem for Android app and clicking on “Info”. The version number is at the bottom.
The July update to version 2306 of the WSA brought improved camera compatibility, as well as a floating taskbar for simplified use in full-screen mode.
