Question about Qubes Android VMs


I have a simple question to anyone who managed to successfully setup an Android VM in Qubes: how performant is it? Are the animations smooth? If one makes Signal calls with it are they smooth?

A while ago I’ve set up an Android qube according to the instructions someone provided on the qubes-users mailing list (I think it’s this one).


  • you get an annoying double-mouse that only moves relative to your cursor when you click
  • no ‘seamless’ mode integration (since no-one developed it)

I haven’t tested signal calls.

But again, I did some years ago and things might have changed. You’ll find some other attempts at doing this on the mailing list archives.

Anbox works through Whonix VM’s. Didn’t get internet working OOTB but I didn’t need nor troubleshoot it.
