UPDATE: Since the writing of this post, Bluestacks launched two different Android Emulator versions: BlueStacks 3 and BlueStacks 4. The current version is BlueStacks 4 and you can download it for free from the tool’s official website.

With the help of this Android emulator, you can play your favorite mobile games on your Windows computer six times faster than on any phone.

You can read the original report below.


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 nevertheless.

You guessed it, we’re talking about BlueStacks, probably the most famous Android emulator for Windows. The developer team from BlueStacks made many Windows 10 users very happy a few years ago after announcing the release of BlueStacks 2, which works perfectly on Windows 10.

What is BlueStacks?

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 brought 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 on Windows 10

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.

How has your BlueStacks experience been so far? Are you using it to play Android games on your Windows computer? Tell us in the comments.
