I'll wait until the official rollout, which hopefully allows for the full Google app framework to get sideloaded in

Given the tight partnership between Microsoft and Amazon to use the Amazon AppStore on WSA (and the contrastingly cold relationship that persists between Redmond and Mountain View), I wouldn't hold my breath for an 'official' method to do so.

You can use Magisk to load Play Services, among other options. I just installed Aurora and called it a day.

Well Microsoft is now releasing phone/tablet devices running Android, and the whole point of integrating Android apps into Windows is that Microsoft is finally giving up trying to force their own app ecosystem. I don't see why Google would prevent their services from running on Windows, it's adding millions more devices under their umbrella for free. At best I think we see them officially support Windows in a year or two, but at worst we'll get a better method of putting the Google framework on Windows than the ugly hacks involved right now

There are no benchmarks available that show any performance increases, and several that show a significant decrease to 10 under certain circumstances. So really the only thing 11 has going for it at this point is a different visual theme, is that enough of a reason?

Personally I'm waiting at least until Android app functionality is rolled out. That's the point where it offers something significantly new compared to 10, and hopefully by then the performance issues are figured out and Microsoft gets their heads out of their asses in regards to the taskbar oversimplification
I consider it basically just a UI update, and I'm happy enough with that.

I just reinstalled the Windows Subsystem for Android using MagiskOnWSA. Easy as hell, Play Services work now and any apps I wanted to install with Play Services dependencies now work properly.
