With the recent technological advancements made to phones, the gamer market has now been split between consoles, computers, and mobile phones. Mobile phones have slowly been creeping up and taking over, however. With many of their games being free and easy to play, it is understandable why this is happening. But what if you wanted to play these android phone games on your computer? Normally, you would not be able to do this, but by following these steps, youโ€™ll be able to play all your favorite phone games on the computer.


Bluestacks has become one of the most, if not the most, popular phone emulator programs on the computer. If you donโ€™t mind the interface not looking like your phone, then it will do the job perfectly well. It is packed with features and will run apps for Windows or Mac smoothly without any issues. Getting it set up, however, can be a little difficult for the standard computer user.

To emulate Android, it will need to enable Intel VT or AMD-V. This can be done by hopping into your system bios and doing so. Once that is done, download and install the program and get ready to play all the games that you have ever wanted to. The benefit to BlueStacks as well is that it can allow you to change the resolution, FPS, and even configure how much CPU and RAM usage you want to be dedicated to the program. It can make the games look even better than they did on mobile.

Find Your Apps

Once you have an emulator installed and are ready to launch it, you will have to find the games that you want to play. There are many websites out there that have downloadable apps. You will notice that when you download them, they have a strange extension name. This is completely normal and they must stay like this if you plan on running them with the emulator.

Once they are downloaded, open up the emulator and connect the two together. Depending on what emulator you have chosen this will either be done by opening the app itself or navigating through some menus within the emulator. Now that you have your favorite games installed, you are now set to play them and join in with mobile people from your desktop.

Mirror Your Phone

If you donโ€™t want to go to all of that hassle to play your mobile games, you can look to mirror your phone on your computer. Typically with Android phones, you can mirror your screen to your PC, also allowing you to run apps through it. While it does not allow for nearly as much customization as an emulator would, it is an easy solution for those who are looking to play.

To answer the question in full, yes, you can play android games on your computer. You will have to take some extra steps to do so, but if you truly are passionate about these games, then you will have no issue getting it done. What games do you plan on playing on your computer first?
