Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR

Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • App not great

    By Robby
    I love Hangouts meet on the web. It’s a little frustrating that it only works in Chrome, however when you use it in Chrome it’s pretty great. I love the idea of what google is going for. On iPhone it’s a mediocre experience. It’s an ok app that works well enough most of the time, but it feels like an afterthought. As long as it continues to be polished, I think it’s in good shape. The biggest problem is that it doesn’t have iPad support (and I want iPad Pro support). It’s kind of ridiculous that there is a meeting app that doesn’t have iPad and iPad Pro 13” support. That would be my biggest complaint on this app. I really hope they continue to aggressively push this forward. I would love to replace our other meeting platform within the company with Meet, but with things like this missing, it’s not something we can do yet.
  • Horrible on mobile

    By Nicobar2000
    Hangout was already sketchy on the go but Meet is even worst: I have to join meetings from my phone during my commute but unlike on desktop there is no way to disable video download, so I have to ask everyone to turn off their video otherwise I can’t hear them because it drops audio as it runs out of bandwidth. Also there is no way to switch the audio to use the internal speaker (hangouts could do that), so that I can hold my phone... like a phone.
  • Worst part: no audio output selection

    By Inthemood
    Unlike hangout where you can choose which audio output you want to use: headphone, speaker, Bluetooth, meet just thinks it is smart enough to choose it for you, and it is NOT what most people want, especially when they have to use this app because they have to join a call while commuting. Fix it please Google. This app is meant for business use and it’d better to be flexible enough for busy professionals.
  • Huge Fans!

    By tylerginter
    This app keeps getting better and better. Our team loves it. Thanks google for continuing to improve the features. A lot of the negative reviews have been addressed with recent updates!
  • So much better than Hangouts!

    By MooreVoice
    As a regular Hangouts (now Meet) user, I’m thrilled with the improvements, streamlined interface and ease of use. My only request is that Google Drive sharing be integrated as it was with Hangouts.
  • Ruined a meeting.

    By Prosborne
    I tried to download this for my iPad to connect to a meeting and the audio wouldn’t allow me to mute my device, causing a ton of feedback. I tried multiple ways to kill the audio, but it forced a single block of audio creating an annoying experience in the room. Definitively an annoying experience for a product that realistically has one use.
  • Good, but could be better

    By Offbeatmammal
    Works well, but needs a couple more fixes... New appointments don't always show up in time to dial in! The hovering hangupmbutton disappears to fast to reliably hit at the end of a call!
  • A business app that doesn’t support the iPad

    By MovieNightsNY
    I found out about this app though a meeting invite I got from a co-worker at work. I’m not sure why they decided to make an app that does less than Google Hangouts supports less platforms than Hangouts. No native iPad support and the web version only works ok Chrome on OS X. Also I couldn’t get it to work with my Bluetooth ear piece.
  • Could be SO much better...

    By Defiant254
    This app could be excellent. The technology is good, it’s stable and efficient. However, the fact that this is only an iPhone app is absolutely crazy. No iPad app makes this a deal-breaker for me. I do almost all of my remote work on an iPad, so this app just doesn’t get used. PLEASE make an iPad app.
  • Surprisingly good

    By dcsf°
    Can’t believe how high quality this was on mobile on a mediocre LTE connection.
