BlueStacks Cloud Connect for Android is a free emulator that allows you to access all your Android apps on your PC. Although it’s great to access your Android apps on the go, sometimes a larger screen can improve productivity or ease of gameplay.
With BlueStacks, you can sync your mobile device with your computer and install your favourite applications remotely on your PC. Plus, you’re not restricted to the apps that are currently on your Android device. You can access the Google Play store from within the BlueStacks desktop app, and the games you install on your PC will sync with your Google account. Another couple of Android emulators to consider are Windroy and MEmu Android Emulator.
Is BlueStacks free or paid?
The Android BlueStacks app is a free download, with no in-app purchases.
How do I sync my Google account to BlueStacks?
It’s easy. Once you’ve installed the BlueStacks apps on your Android and Windows devices, follow these steps:
- In the BlueStacks desktop app, click on ‘Settings’
- Click on ‘Cloud Connect’
- When asked if you have an Android phone, click ‘Yes’
- Create a BlueStacks account
- When you’re presented with a PIN, enter it into the BlueStacks app on your Android device
- Click ‘Login’ in the Android BlueStacks app
Can BlueStacks run APK?
Yes, it can. Download the selected APK to your PC, then in the BlueStacks desktop app, click the ‘Install APK’ button.
When the Windows Explorer window opens, navigate to the APK and open it. Once the app has finished installing, you’ll be able to access it from the ‘My Games’ tab in the BlueStacks Windows app.
How do I download BlueStacks on Android?
You can download the APK from any reliable source. Remember that you’ll also need to install the Windows version of the app on your PC. It only takes up 500 kilobytes of memory, so you won't experience any performance issues on your Android device.
Synchronise your data
BlueStacks Cloud Connect is one of the best experiences we’ve had when synchronising between Android and Windows. It’s more than a bare-bones emulator because it also monitors the quality of your connection and warns you if the app’s performance is likely to be impacted.
