Best Android Emulators for Windows To Run Android Apps on PC

Android Emulators might be a boon for you if are a person who owns an iPhone or a windows phone. There might be a lot of things you need to do using an Android device which cannot be done using windows devices. For example The Prisma app , You cannot use it in your windows device as it is available only for the iOS and Android users.
In such a situation, you will only find Android Emulators doing the task for you.

On the other hand , some applications like ADV Screen Recorder or Cardboard camera are available only for the android OS , and not even the iOS. Android Emulators can again do the work for you.

The reasons for using Android emulators are not yet over. Suppose you want an application that runs only on a rooted device but you are not in a mood to root your primary android Smartphone. The option that lies in front of you is to root your Emulator and get the task done.

In this post, I will be sharing the list of the Best Android Emulators out there in the market.

Top 6 Best Android Emulators

There are a lot of Android Emulators out there for windows. How to find the best ones? Well, you need not concern yourselves with that. We have done the needful. Here is the list of the best emulators out there.

Bluestacks App Player

No wonder why Bluestacks tops the list. It is undoubtedly the best Android Emulator from Windows PC. For long, Bluestacks has been helping out people to make use of the android operating system without buying an enabled device.

Ever since Bluestacks was launched, it has been growing in features.

Bluestacks costs just 2$ a month but if you opt for the free version, you gotta pay them by downloading sponsored applications. But that again is not a problem because various versions of rooted Bluestacks are available over the internet which does not require any purchase, neither is apps downloading necessary to continue using the app.


YouWave Emulator

The perfect alternative to Bluestacks. Youwave has almost similar functions as Bluestacks. In the case of Bluestacks, you need to make monthly payments but for Youwave, you just have to get your pockets out just once and get access to all the premium features.


Youwave comes with two versions , The Ice-cream Sandwich version comes for free while the Lollipop version is paid which costs 30$
In case you are facing any issue with Bluestacks , this is the one that is going to work for you. 

Andy Android Emulator 

Another feature loaded Android Emulator for a windows PC. Andy is completely free and you are not supposed to pay a penny for it. When Andy was launched, it was having some bugs but with the passage of time, the emulator has improved itself tremendously and now stands as a competitor to Bluestacks and Youwave. It runs all kinds of applications smoothly and is well capable of handling multitasking. Since the day it was launched, a lot of issues have been fixed. 

There are two things that I liked a lot about this Emulator and that are, firstly it is free and secondly, it can be rooted as per need. 
With such amazing features, it is something must-try.

Genymotion Android Emulator 


Genymotion is something which is not really made, keeping in mind the general public. I mean Genymotion was basically made for the developers who want to test their applications out on different devices. The emulator can be configured to any Smartphone as per the need.   Suppose you want to check something in a Google Nexus and a Samsung S6. That is where Genymotion comes to play.

It allows you to change from one device to another. Though as I have already said that Genymotion was made by keeping developers in mind, it is not so great for normal users but ever since it is free , there is nothing wrong in giving a try.

Nox App Player


Nox is the emulator which has been in the limelight since the Pokemon Go game because it is the one that supports the game properly in a Personal Computer. This app also was basically designed for the gamers. The extraordinary features of Nox emulator make it easy for the games to control their games using the primary input device i.e. keyboard and mouse.

You can easily assign some particular gestures to a particular key. For example, You can add the gesture to jump to the “up” arrow key. It is usually fun playing games using the Nox Emulator. Despite having such awesome features, it comes free of cost (Icing on the cake feeling, right ?)


The last one that makes the list is Droid4x. Just as the other emulators in the list above, it is also something I would recommend you to try out. It is almost similar to Andy and the interface is also somewhat same.

They also resemble in their performance and other features. This also, just like Andy has been improving a lot since the date of its launch. One striking feature of this emulator is the add-ons. It also has an application that can be installed in your Smartphone in order to control the games or other applications in your Personal computer. 


For example, you can use your mobile phone to control the car racing games on your computer. With so awesome features, it is really something you must give a try. If we compare this one to Andy, this might prove to be better than Andy in terms of gaming but where comes the question of speed , Andy definitely steals the show.
