Anbox: Android in a box for Linux

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 be integrated with your operating system like any other native application.

To achieve our goal we use standard Linux technologies like containers (LXC) to separate the Android operating system from the host. Any Android version is suitable for this approach and we try to keep up with the latest available version from the Android Open Source Project.

Features


 

Open Source

The whole source code is available as Open Source and licensed under the terms of the Apache and GPLv3 license.

 

No limits

As Anbox is running an entire Android system, conceptually any application can run.

 

Secure

Anbox puts Android apps into a tightly sealed box without direct access to hardware or your data.

 

Performant

Runs Android without hardware virtualization and seamlessly bridges over hardware acceleration features.

 

Integrated

Tightly integrated with the host operating system to offer a rich feature set.

 

Convergent

Anbox scales across different form factors similar like Android does. It works on a laptop and a mobile phone.
