Did we ever thought that its possible to run Android Apps on your existing Windows PC without modifying your system? Perhaps many of us did thought about that but couldn’t do anything as it was almost impossible to run any of the these applications on the Windows PC. Looks like this is going to change soon. BlueStacks App Player (Alpha Version) enables users to run Android applications on any Windows x86-based devices, including desktops, laptops, netbooks, and tablets.
Features of BlueStacks App Player
- Play Android apps fast and full-screen
- Push your favorite apps from your Android phone to your PC using BlueStacks Cloud Connect
- Run 10 pre-loaded apps “out of the box”
- Install up to 26 more of your favorite apps
To start using it, you can download the alpha version of BlueStacks App Player. The installation file comes in the form of a .msi installer and its ~120 MB in size. As stated above, Free Bluestacks player comes preloaded with 10 default applications and you can install upto 26 of your favorite Android Apps. The pre-loaded apps that come with this includes Pulse news reader, Bloomberg, Talking Tom etc. To install more, you need Cloud Connect, a cloud-based service that enables a Windows PC to become an extension of a mobile device.It allows for any application on any Android device to be sent to a user’s PC.
Regarding how good or bad the user experience will be on Windows PC, we need to wait and watch till the final version comes out.
