Youwave is another tool to run Android apps on Windows PC easily. It’s not free of cost but you can get a 10 day trial of it. Youwave comes in two different versions, which are youwave basic and youwave home. The difference between them is the Android OS version. Basic version runs Android 2.3 gingerbread and home version runs Android 4.0.4 ICS. Download and install youwave android app player from here.
After installation process completion youwave’s window will open up.
Now you are required to click on “view” tab and from the drop down menu select “Online content”. From the Online Content menu, click Google Play. It will download and install Google play it in few seconds.
After signing in with your Gmail account, you’ll see the google play app store. And now can download and install any android app on your PC.
Tip: You can run whatsapp on your PC, because youwave has built-in whatspp on it and you are just required to install it and start messaging.
You can also run Android apps on your Windows PC, by using the official Android SDK tool for developers and genymotion. Both tools are good, but I wouldn’t recommend you to use these tools because of the below listed reasons.
- Huge in size, almost half GB.
- Needs Java platform to run the emulator.
- Has compatibility issues with Windows’ PCs.
- Registration is must, to download this tool.
I hope you will enjoy using bluestacks and youwave by using your favorite Android apps on your Windows PC.
