Once you are all set, make sure you install the cumulative update KB5010414 from Windows Update and install the Amazon Appstore from the Microsoft Store, you will also need to have an Amazon account and set your region to United States (English) to get access to over 1000 apps on the Amazon AppStore.

If you prefer, you can also sideload APKs manually as this is a system-wide update that enables running Android apps supported by Intel Bridge Technology, hence you are not limited to just apps on the Amazon AppStore if you want to install other Android apps.
