Run or Play Android Apps/Games on Windows

Wondering if you will be able to run or play Android Apps and games on your Windows PC? The answer is absolutely YES. It is very much possible to run Android apps on your Windows PC.


If you own touch enabled Windows 8 PC or tablet then you will be definitely looking for some quality apps or games to try on your Device. Since Windows 8 App Store doesn’t offer that much quality apps/games at the moment, there is a reason to look for some other means. BlueStacks is ready to take this challenge.



BlueStacks is one of the best Android Emulator for Windows that lets you run Android apps or play Android games on your PC. There are more than 750,000 apps/games in Google Play Store at the moment and BlueStacks gives you access to all the apps from your Windows PC or Mac.

The problem with Bluestacks is that it is still based on old Android 2.3 Gingerbread so not all the apps in Google Play store will run on it. Also it won’t be able to run apps as fast as these run on Android device and it is available for Windows 7, Windows 8 only and not for Windows RT. However installing and using it on non-touch devices don’t make sense since Android apps are made for touch devices.

How to Run & Play Android Apps/Games on Windows or Mac

Download for your Windows version and install it. When installation is completed, launch the app and start searching for your desired Android app or game.

When search results are displayed, click on install button next to your desired app/game. Now BlueStacks will ask about your Google Account details. Submit the details and then download the app. All the installed apps go to My Apps section.


Once your favorite game is downloaded, you can start playing it on Windows. If you are using it on non-touch device, then you will have to use mouse clicks in-place of taps.


That was the trick of playing Android Apps/games on Windows. Hope you enjoyed reading this.
