How to install Android applications on PC?

Today there is a large amount of interesting applications and games that can be run on a smartphone. They greatly improve the usability of a cell phone especially with viral applications like WhatsApp, Snapchat and Tik-Tok. So smartphones are no longer just for making calls or sending emails.


However, does this mean that you will necessarily need a smartphone to enjoy these applications? No… well, not really. This is possible through software called “emulators”. In this tutorial, we present two popular Android emulators that you can install on your PC if needed.
