Android 13-based Windows Subsystem for Android released

Microsoft has released a major update to Windows Subsystem for Android. The new version of the subsystem is built on top of Android 13 and brings with it many improvements, including improved mouse input handling, clipboard stability improvements, and more. As of this writing it is only available on the Insider channel of WSA (doesn't require you to be a Windows Insider).

The Insider Preview branch of Windows Subsystem for Android Preview exists separately from the Windows Insider program. So one can test new subsystem updates without having to install Windows 11 Insider Builds.

To enroll in this program, follow the instructions on the official website. It may take up to a week before you start receiving test builds of Windows Subsystem for Android.
