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.

  • No stars would be better

    By Having fun!!!!
    I’ve had this same cable service for over 20yrs. & everything worked fine until they decided to come into our homes & install their “boxes” just a way for them to invade our privacy in my opinion. I never had a problem before their boxes were installed. Now my bill is over $200 a month for basic cable, no movie channels, just basic & internet that I got when it was $10 a month. But the main issue is me having to reset my box a minimum of 5 times a day sometimes more! They’ve had at least 10-15 different technicians out here to try & fix the problem, never have. They always just used to say it must be old wiring on the outside of the building. But they couldn’t replace those wires. So now that I’ve moved I’m still getting the same problems! Making me reset my box in the middle of a movie or whatever I'm trying to watch. I’m so sick of this Comcast B.S. & all their excuses! Why can’t you just fix it once & for all? Please don’t order anything from Comcast, it’s obviously junk! Nothing but problems from day 1! Oh almost forgot, they actually offered to credit my account $10 on a $200 or more bill? For all this crap every single day? How about every time you make me reset my box you credit me $10? That sounds much better to me. No, I’d rather just have cable that actually works all the time, and I’ve told them this but still they’ve done nothing about it!!
  • Nope

    I understand the idea, but most people will use this to turn off kids electronics. I personally think this is a bit cruel because most kids work hard at school and just want to go home and play some Fortnite. But thanks to this app, kids won’t have anything to do besides school. I know they could “read” or do something else productive, but that is not what entertainment is for. Is going to the movies “productive?” NOPE! Is going to Main Event “Productive?” ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! I think it is so unfair to treat kids this way (The ones who make good grades and are responsible and just overall well behaved) because video games games, phones, tv, etc. gives kids and teens of all ages something to look forward to, you know, like something little to motivate young minds each day to keep going and to try their hardest! I just don’t think it is very fair to kids and teens. What if some fall into depression because they won’t have those little things to motivate them through the day. Is that the goal? Is that what parents want? I sure hope not! Don’t get me wrong, I do thing electronics are used too much in America, but why do you need an app to do your parenting for you? Just tell your kid(s) to get off the games or phone in 10 minutes or so, and if they don’t then tell them that you will take the games away. As simple as that. Parents please listen: DONT BE TOO HARSH TO KIDS. Please.
  • Want more freedom on....

    I love the app. But I gave it three stars because it only lets you set the sleep time for pre-adjusted times. I’m not able to set my own sleep and wake times. Which would be very, very useful if I could. Like for example with the pre-adjusted time I have the Wi-Fi paused at 9:30pmand I can only have turned back on all the way up to 8:30am. I would like to be able to set my own sleep and wake time. Like for instance I have my children’s Wi-Fi paused at 9:30 PM and I would like to have it un-paused at 5:00pm the next day. Because my room is on the other side of the house so I have the Wi-Fi paused at 9:30pm to make sure my children are not getting on their games, phones etc. after I go to bed. In the mornings my children get up and go to school. Well sometimes I’m not always home when they get home from school. They know they are to do their homework before playing on the games, phones etc. but as anyone should know any teenager is not going to follow through on what they are supposed to do especially when a parent is not home to make sure they do as their told. That’s why I would like to be able to set the sleep and wake time as to what fits my lifestyle.
  • COMCAST XFInity in a class above all else!!

    By Carola416
    When it comes to Home Entertainment, high speed Internet, voice unlimited, with the option of an automated Security System for the Home that is a Godsend, we are convinced beyond a shadow of any doubt, that COMCAST XFINITY has topped the charts for the acquisition of perfection!! When other services are stagnant for the rest of the world, we feel encouraged and blessed by the years we’ve had COMCAST. It has just soared in every aspect to make the whole experience of entertainment, Internet, communication and safety blend into an affordable package that is beyond satisfactory for its COMCAST families. They are on call 24/7 for issues and are user friendly such those of us who are not computer savvy. COMCAST XFINITY is always making our experience with them like a special holiday🌲. Every customer service visit has been for a move we have made and they, too, have risen to the highest stars to make our experience the perfect one. If your area has the ability to connect with XFINITY,go for it!!
  • Love the control but internet drops a lot

    By KYgirlnGA
    We love the control you have with the new xfinity app and WiFi. Being able to set time limits on specific devices or turn off a device is great. Also being able to see how much someone is on a device is a great feature. The problem is more with the internet itself. It drops for no apparent reason for a few minutes here and there and this seems to happen daily. Comcast says it’s when the system runs an update but it’s at different times of the day sometimes multiple times a day. We’ve purchased their pods to try to extend the WiFi throughout the house as they recommended. We even exchanged our router twice at their suggestion but nothing seems to help. The WiFi speed is phenomenal; we are able to have 6 devices connected at the same time with no problems other than when the WiFi decides to drop. It’s usually back up in 10 or 15 minutes but the drops are really frustrating when trying to be on a webinar for work and all of a sudden your internet drops!!
  • Great, but could use...

    By KiwiMoon
    Overall, this app is solid and does what it advertises. I noticed, however, that unlike other routers, I’m unable to create a dedicated guest network to keep my devices and guest devices from interacting with each other. I normally setup my routers in this manner as a sort of extra security measure — never know when a friend may bring a virus-infected laptop over! I think the guest network option is missing because it is reserved for the public ‘xfinitywifi’ network...? If so, then it would be really cool if the devices connecting to my home network, but which are assigned to the Guest profile, could be logically treated as being on a separate network so home and guest devices couldn’t communicate with each other. Or, if a dedicated guest network could be made available again and have any devices connecting to it automatically placed in the Guest profile. Either way would satisfy the need while also still allowing customers to monitor usage of and manage guest devices.
  • I use to Love this App

    By Shalynn819
    I loved the XFi app and how i could manage devices at a certain time. I loved how I could still use the Internet even though my children could not, just by switching their profile’s off. I don’t know what happened though. I can’t access the xFi app anymore. I get to the start page that says view Wi-Fi name and password, troubleshoot issues or log out. I can’t do anything past that page. I tried going onto the My Account app and changing my Wi-Fi password and I get the same answer it says we are unable to access this at this time try again or do manually. The My Account app at least allows me to see that I am connected, where as my favorite part about xFi no longer exists along with any other part of it. I tried logging out logging back in, deleting the app and nothing works. I would like to know if this is just me or if it’s an actual bug in the system. I feel like it’s something that’s going on with just me and there’s no way to fix!! I tried doing this from the actual web also and it doesn’t work either for the Xfi.
  • Good idea, poor execution

    By ekv146
    The concept behind this app is wonderful but there are many places where the usefulness needs a lot of help, in priority order: Comcast has started charging us when we go over a monthly limit, and I'm bumping up to that limit every month. It's great that they have the ability to show % bandwidth utilization by device or by profile BUT this is where usefulness is severely lacking. In short, we need a way to debug bandwidth hogs % bandwidth is useless by itself, we need to know actual bandwidth used, and not "low" or "very high" need to be able to see top devices across the entire network, not just top profiles need to be able to drill down from each profile to see top devices Why can't the device name default to the host name, i spent WAY too much time going to each device with its useless default device name, (see UI complaints below). A simple fix would have been to just use the hostname as opposed to some combo of manufacturer (where known) and MAC address UI navigation is just awful, I spend way too much time scrolling down to where I was before when I select an object and then click the back arrow ... figure out a way to remember where I was in a scrolling list before I made a selection (probably the #1 issue that made changing device names so time consuming). There are many more usability comments that I can make, but the next on the list would be to create an iPAD version of the app, or one that can use the iPAD additional real estate.
  • Not bad but needs improvement.

    By BigHeadToddz
    Nice to quickly check and monitor your network and devices connected to your network. Although I do find myself needing a few other options to keep a exploring child at bay and to make things a little easier with a one touch option. I would like to be able to pause the entire router and be able to make a group for all the kiddos so I can pause them all at once. Another thing I would like to see is a new device blocker so when you block an IP it will block the entire PC from just creating another and rejoining the network under that new IP. Makes it hard to put a curfew on something when there is just another way around it. A blocker so that no new devices can access the network without that blocker being disabled would fix that issue. I would also like to see the password tab deleted. I see no reason for that and feel my LAN would be much more secure without it.
  • Still can't use it!!! Not worth it! Buy your own router!

    By Nddigfdjin
    Update: finally got it working. Loved it. But....Only worked for a month and it suddenly stops!! Really??!! Get your act together Xfinity! What type of company are you? Takes several phone calls, escalations to get to an ENGINEERING team who can't figure it out, takes 6 days to call me back, I'm not home so when I call them back 3 days later they've closed my ticket and I have to start all over again!!??? No discount. No compensation for MY wasted time or inadequate product. Not worth it. Going to buy my own router with parental controls this weekend and stop paying them their monthly fees. Everyone should do the same. 1st issue: Same issue as reviewer below....upgraded all of our equipment to be able to excitedly use this app. Only to continue to stay in a continuous loop of " upgrade your equipment to use this app" and web page that says "your equipment has been upgraded". Reinstalled app, restarted phone, logged out/in. Customer support cannot resolve it either. Quite disappointed Comcast!
