We all live in a digital age, where technology is notstand still. If more recently, portable phones seemed miraculous inventions, it is now difficult to imagine a middle-aged person without a smartphone or tablet. Yes what to say, they are almost every schoolboy. The popularity of such electronics is not at all surprising, because gadgets have become for us simply indispensable helpers in many aspects of life. Need access to the Internet? He is always at hand. Calculator, flashlight, calendar, alarm clock, organizer? Now all this is the contents of one small device.
Such devices have many functions, for whichthey were called "pocket computers". And indeed, many useful and necessary functions are partially borrowed from the usual stationary PCs. Of course, there is still a sufficient number of areas of human activity, where only computers are used. But otherwise they can be replaced by gadgets. Among them is worth highlight those that are running the OS "Android". This operating system perfectly reveals the full potential of the device. About the democracy and functionality of "Android" is not hearsay all its users know. A huge advantage of this OS can be considered the support of most mobile applications. But what about people who do not have mobile devices? In this case, the emulator of "Android" will come to the rescue. Today we will talk about one of the most downloaded and used emulators called BlueStacks 2. You will learn about its direct purpose and basic capabilities. Also we'll figure out what to do in case BlueStacks is not supported on your device.
Emulators (another name is simulators) isSpecial programs created to enable you to install mobile applications designed for the Android OS. Roughly speaking, this is an independent operating system inside another operating system. By installing one of these applications on your computer, you will get a full interface to the mobile operating system. Previously, to conduct such manipulations, the user had to have some knowledge in the computer field and load the emulator included in the developer of the Android SDK, or use a virtual machine. All this made the process of installing a mobile application on a computer rather cumbersome, long and complicated. However, with the advent of BlueStacks 2 everything has changed. This program has a simple and intuitive interface, and its loading does not require much effort. With it, you can launch your favorite mobile applications directly from your PC. Download the program directly from the official website of BlueStacks. Is the app not supported on your device? Then the emulator will also come to the rescue. After all, even though you have a gadget, some applications may not be supported by it. For example, an outdated version of "Android" or inappropriate characteristics of the device. Let's talk more about installing BlueStacks on a computer.
As mentioned above, the boot file can befree download from the official site. The installation process itself is not much different from other programs for Windows. The program excellently feels on "Windows 7", but it is also suitable for XP, however, the functionality will be slightly reduced. During the installation, the program will make a request for self-downloading files from the Internet, in order to avoid future problems it is better to prohibit. Be prepared for the fact that the installation process will be long, yet it is an independent shell. At this time, it is better to leave the computer alone and not burden the system with additional tasks.
Also, you will be warned that the program canbe inefficient for some applications. For example, if you are the owner of a weak notebook or netbook, be prepared for the fact that the emulator can brake. If you see a message stating that BlueStacks is not supported on your device, it's likely that the technical specifications of the computer do not allow you to install this emulator. This problem can also arise with the adaptation from "Windows 8" or 10. If a specific application from BlueStacks is not supported on your device, maybe you do not have enough software to run this particular program. So, some applications require access to the camera, accelerometer, navigation and so on, and on the PC this will not happen. BlueStacks on "Android" is good only for normal applications that work without additional connections.
Let's return to fastidious applications. Many users mistakenly believe that if an application or some game can launch on a smartphone or tablet, then on the computer, they will even more work. After all, a PC a priori is much more powerful and has a much better memory. However, the application may simply not start due to the fact that you have a weak computer. Most often this happens with 3D-games, but simple 2D should work with cheers. I would like to note that for using BlueStacks you need to get a Google account. Then just find the right app in the Play Market store (Google Play) and install it.
A distinctive feature of BlueStacks is thatfrom applications, you can receive notifications the same way as in the mobile version. A new notification appears in the taskbar. In addition, you can sync with the gadget and install the same applications that are already installed on your tablet or smartphone.
