The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. 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
B. Bluestacks App .
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.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.

App Reviews

  • Timetravel feature needed + ocean map

    By JamesAlexander84
    I really like google Earth, but I would love to see a time travel feature where you can see what has changed over the decades: buildings, roads, environment, etc. Also, I think the next step should definitely be mapping the oceans; you will have work for centuries, honestly. Lastly, I want to see higher resolution imaging. One thing that I currently like is the 3D feature especially when you first tap it and the camera does a cyclical camera pan; that's awesome! Although, I would like this to be available from multiple zoom levels. Also, how about quick-zoom level buttons: 1x, 2, 5x, 10x or altitude ranges. Google + Wikipedia would make a powerful resource for information ;)
  • Slow, outdated, and awful software

    By #plssendhelp
    I used to love google earth about two years ago, but after a new update, the whole thing went down hill. First, the satellite view of some places, for example San Francisco, was out dated by at least three years. Second, the new up date doesn’t include Wikipedia shortcuts, or simple explanatory anymore. And, you can’t turn the stuff off the settings that you don’t want, like let’s say you only want road feature on, well tough luck be cause it doesn’t allow that. Lastly, if you scroll around eventually at least on my tablet, the app closes and shuts off for no reason. This app has so much potential and it’s a shame that it is like this. I hope google can fix there problems soon.
  • Such a cool app, but could be better

    By jimago
    I love the power of this app. There are only a couple things I wish they would improve on. I would love to see the ability to pin locations in this that would then also be on my Google maps, or vice versa, see pins I've made in Google maps show up here. My other actually complaint is that if you leave the app for maybe only a minute and come back to it, it resets. Losing the location you left on. I use this app a lot researching places I plan to hike, and I'm constantly bouncing from app to app. It's incredibly annoying to have to figure out where I was every time it decides to reset.
  • Cant save places or easily sync them from somewhere else

    By Andgfneisijd
    Im going on a trip with my family somewhere soon and recently saved a bunch of places on google earth on a public library computer, assuming it would auto save to my account bc usually google is awesome like that. so i download the app so i can see what i had previously saved and it turns out the only way you can do that is by going on the computer you saved them to and manually moving them. and!! not only that but you cant even start all over again because you cant even save places on the app at all! so if you just want to look around places with no way what-so-ever to save the info that you find, then this is the perfect app for you!
  • I preferred the previous version.

    By akLT2
    Personally I preferred the previous version for a couple reasons. The biggest reason being that the app would save the information in a cache from areas you previously viewed. This was extremely helpful for hiking and backpacking in areas where there is no signal. By viewing areas before I left I could fully use the app out of service. Now, without a signal, the app is useless in the backcountry. Another reason I prefer the old version is because of the panoramio photos. This was nice for areas that aren’t popular. Overall the app is satisfactory but I preferred the old app with the features I mentioned.
  • No alternative on the market

    By dekema2
    I don't like Google at all, but Google Earth is the one application that everyone should have on their phone. I am the kind of person that uses Apple Maps for navigation but Google Earth and Street View for "exploring," especially as a roadgeek. With the new A9-A10 processors moving is buttery smooth compared to my old iPhone 5s. Currently though the app won't open, so this review is subject to change. Also, the removal of map caching is a detriment. But on a good day this is a great app.
  • Good but not up to date

    By Toxic creeper
    This a great app but not 100% up to date like how some of the areas are 3D but the rest are only 2D but they also need to take the picture again like at Disney the pandora land isn’t even close to being finished and it was done last year I also liked when their were pictures every where but now you can only use 20 pictures per location including Atlanta GA airport but on the other hand it is kind of a good app
  • Cool, but could be improved.

    By Funkemunky
    I love that I can almost anywhere in the world and see it as though I’m there. However, I think the app could definitely have a much better UI (that doesn’t need a tutorial). I’m glad a tutorial is included, but no one has the time nor cares about reading through it. Google has been well known for having great UI’s with little to no learning curve until recently. It would be great to go back to those days.
  • I’m amazed

    By Deerhunter1776
    Technology has come so far! This app allows you to go virtually anywhere on this planet! It’s an amazing app, but here’s an idea; you could release an app just like this, but for iOS 11 or up, because it’d contain augmented reality! I think it’d be awesome to turn a field into a city with the point of a camera! I hope you guys get to read this, because I, along with many others, would pay for this app.
  • One more feature?

    By digitalXcode
    You have really improved this app, it runs much smoother than before, and has great new features. But can I request something? I would love to see the ‘Sky View’ that is part of the desktop version. To be able to see the stars and galaxies from the sky view would make this app killer. I appreciate your consideration on that. And thanks for what you have already done with it. PS I will give you five stars if you add Sky view.
