Why do you want to use an android emulator? Be very clear with your purpose, because different emulator has different functionalities and features. Many users especially teenagers are using this emulator for gaming purposes. Whereas professionals use it for testing and development of software applications.
The problem is that many emulators are there on the internet with fake promises. That’s why I have listed down only seven android emulators for different purposes which are tested. I have mentioned the issues that you may face with these android emulators.
BlueStacks is the most popular and best Android emulator for your PC. If you install this application on your PC, you will get access to most of the android applications on your PC. In one of my previous articles, a user asked is bluestacks safe to install in Windows? Yeah, it’s safe as per previous performance and reviews, no questions about its security so far. You can use all of your applications on your computer by installing this application. However, most users install this application for playing android games on their computers. Because the application performs very well for gaming purposes, it does not work well for other productive applications.
Gameloop is mostly used by game lovers. Because this android emulator is specially working for gaming purposes. Other android applications are not working on this platform. The older version of the application was Tencent Gaming Buddy. After the update, it has a new feature for the PUBG killer with interactive graphics and faster processing.
3. Android Studio’s Emulator
Android Studio’s Emulator is a perfect choice for all the developers. This is not a software application for gaming and general purposes. It contains a lot of tools and plugins for developing and testing software applications. This emulator is developed by Google and most developers prefer this software application. However, it is tough to set up on your PC, it has many professional benefits.
4. MEmu Play
MEmu Play is also a great android emulator application for Windows. This gained popularity very late. However, the application has many features, including compatibility with both AMD and Intel CPUs. The application is not only for gaming purposes but it also works well for general android applications. This application is compatible with Windows 7 to Windows 10. The application is based on the Android Nougat(7.1.2) in its default settings. It also fits well with lower edition androids such as KitKat (4.4) and Lollipop(5.0).
ARChon Emulator is not a conventional emulator like other android emulators. This is available as an extension of Google Chrome. You can access all your android applications and games from the Chrome extension. If you are very new or do not know much about technologies then it can be a tedious task for you. However, following the right steps, you can use it any Operating System which has a Chrome browser.
6. Remix OS Player
If you want to get a full desktop experience of your android applications, then Remix OS Player is for you. This emulator works very well for all the android purposes. This is a very stable software among all the android emulators. However, it supports Android 6.0 only, which is a limitation. Furthermore, there is no up-gradation of the software so you are left with only the older version of the application.
7. Nox Player
Nox Player is also known as the gaming application for PCs. However, this software application is also very useful for other purposes. You can play many high-resolution android games like PUBG, Clash of Clans, and Justice League using Nox Player. Some of the drawbacks of this emulator are: it is compatible with only Lollipop 5.0 and it is very slow processing. This software application has many negative reviews from many antiviruses. So, before you use this application read the reviews of the application from the web or from online sources to get a clear idea.
Now enjoy your android experience on a larger screen by installing an android emulator. Choose a suitable emulator as per your requirement. If you are looking for gaming purposes you can use Gameloop or Bluestacks. But if you are looking for any professional emulator you can use Google’s Android Studio. And if you have any other queries regarding android emulators then feel free to ask. Don’t forget to mention if you have used any other emulators.
