We still don’t know if Project Astoria will arrive to Windows 10, but we have another option for running Android apps on Windows 10, though only desktop and tablet Windows 10 users will have that opportunity for now, but it’s a good start.

You guessed it, we’re talking about BlueStacks, probably the most famous Android emulator for Windows. And the developing team from BlueStacks prepares a pleasant surprise for us, as it announced the release of BlueStacks 2, which works perfectly on Windows 10.

For those who are not familiar with this program, BlueStacks is very competent Android emulator for Windows, which allows you to run Play Store and all Android apps on your computer. And BlueStacks 2 will bring even more features and improvements, such as the ability to run multiple apps at once, as users of the previous version were only able to run one app at the time.

BlueStacks 2 is even closer to the mobile Android experience. If you’re running it on a Windows 10 tablet, or you have a touch-sensitive display, you’ll be able to navigate through the program almost as you do on a real Android device. The only thing that misses from BlueStacks 2 is motion sensor, but there are a plenty of buttons that you can tap on to simulate the screen rotation or give your device a shake. However, if you don’t have a touch-sensitive display, you’ll navigate through the app with your mouse, just like you did in the previous version.

BlueStacks 2 is available only to Windows users for now, while Mac users still can use the original BlueStacks. But the developers have said that they plan to deliver it to Apple’s operating system, as well.

You can download BlueStacks 2 from the official site, for free.
