“Anbox puts the Android operating system into a container, abstracts hardware access and integrates core system services into a GNU Linux system. Every Android application will behave integrated into your operating system like any other native application,” the projects says on its official website.
“To achieve our goal we use standard Linux technologies like containers (LXC) to separate the Android operating system from the host. The Android version doesn’t matter for this approach and we try to keep up with the latest available version from the Android Open Source project.”
According to Anbox, these is no simple way to install android apps in anbox. Because of Google Play store permissions, you can install it directly from playstore. You need to download the specific APK from third party source.
