There has been a long search for a way to run the applications of any operating system in others, without any form of emulation or special applications.

If this situation has been several times close to happening, but without ever succeeding. A new proposal has just arrived, which will bring Android apps to Linux.

The tech giant Google had already achieved the feat of getting their Android apps running on ChromeOS, natively and fully integrated. To achieve this has changed its desktop operating system to accommodate these new applications.

The Linux universe was now also covered by a way to run these applications, with the arrival of Anbox. This new open-source project was created by Simonical’s Canonical engineer Simon Fels and started in 2015 with the purpose of bringing to Android and other Linux distributions Android applications.

It is still at a very early stage, Anbox is already able to fulfill its purpose, being quick to install and use. The video below shows in a simple way all the potentialities of Anbox and what it is already capable of doing.

The creators of Anbox wanted to make it truly secure and therefore block the access of these Android applications to Ubuntu by placing them in watertight and protected containers.

Anbox will continue to be developed to become more stable and even simpler to use. It will integrate even more with Ubuntu and gain support for even more Linux distributions.

It is thus much closer to the mix of applications of various operating systems, which for so many years is sought, in a simple way and without any intermediate software, so often difficult to use and complicated to install.

So, what do you think about this new tool? Simply share your views and thoughts in the comment section below.
