How to Play Android Games in PC

Is there a way to play Android Games in PC? If you are a hardcore Android gamer and you want to bring your gaming-experience to the next level right into your PC, there are a couple of ways to do this.

Have an Android-Based PC

The first way to be able to play Android games in PC is by installing the operating system itself into your computer. There are also Windows computers nowadays that have double OS, which will let you switch from the standard Windows OS to Android OS.

Install a Software

The second method to play Android games in PC without ever having to install the OS itself is by using certain software that serve as emulators. Here are some examples of them:

1. Bluestack

Bluestack is a very popular Android emulator because it is easy to use. To download Android games, just get their APK files or download the apps through Bluestack software.

2. Android SDK

Android SDK is the emulator used by Android developers. You can get this one from the Developer’s page of the Android website. It only runs on computers with XP to Windows 7 operating systems, and then, with the Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later (x86 platform only).

3. Android-x86

Android-x86, as the name implies, runs Android on the x86 platform. It works fine with AMD and Intel processors. It provides a great way to run Android on old tablets or laptops, giving you another excuse to keep your old computer. It should be noted though that the compatibility of this software is currently limited to Samsung Q1U, Viliv S5, Lenovo Thinkpad x61, Del Inspiron Mini Duo, Asus Eee PCs, and Viewsonic Viewpad 10.


Note that the software mentioned above are from third-party providers and we cannot guarantee their stability in your computer. Discretion is advised when using them.
