The modularity of Android allows this system to run on almost any platform where it is installed. Without problems of use, it gives the user the possibility to recycle any smartphone, box or PC.
It is precisely in the latter that it is increasingly an option, again to bring to life hardware that is often stopped and unused. After many versions that became available, it is the turn of Android 11 to reach the PC, now by the hands of Bliss OS 14.
Use Android 11 on PC
Many users choose to recycle their older computers by installing lightweight versions of Linux. This scenario has changed in recent years with the availability of Android for these systems.
Over the years, versions are converted and made available as they are released by Google. This is a work done by the community and that every year manages to improve what is offered to users for their machines.

Bliss OS 14 is the solution
Launched in September, Android 11 did not yet have an offer for x86, something that is about to change. Bliss OS 14 comes open the door for this new version, showing what can be used very soon. For now, and for testing, the beta version is now available.
- Hibernate mode does not work properly on some machines, leading to a restart
- Volume and sound issues
- Bluetooth on some systems
- Rotation does not work on some devices
- Some ARM / ARM64-based apps do not work
- Firefox randomly closes on some devices
The issues presented above are problems identified and that will be addressed in the next development versions. As in the other scenarios, this alpha version will be used to test Bliss OS 14 and detect problems that may be detected.
Alpha testing will continue
A great advantage of these distributions is that they can be used in scenarios where Android apps run side by side with the rest. Thus, they become the obvious choice in scenarios where you want to emulate a PC with all the capabilities of a smartphone.
There is still no simple process to have Bliss OS 14 running on a PC, since it still requires it to be compiled. Soon, and with more stable versions, it will be much easier to install Android 11 on a PC and thus have access to everything it offers.
