Using TextNow on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install TextNow on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

1: Download an Andriod Software emulator for Windows

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.
If you do the above correctly, the Software will be successfully installed.

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and locate the search bar. Now type TextNow in the search bar and hit Search. You will easily see the app. Click on TextNow application icon. A window of TextNow will open and it will display the app in your Emulator Software. Hit the Install button and your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.

App Reviews

  • One Star Garbage

    By PvtUsr007
    TextNow does absolutely none of what it advocates in its advertising as absolute for the call reception is poor even under the best of circumstances, i.e. excellent carrier/WiFi signals. In my case, the tools stopped working, there were no means to stop the screen from fading away once placing one’s hands or face near it, one couldn’t sign out of other locations/devices, and the app started actually cloning itself via my actual handheld device. If one uses a VPN, it will fight vigorously to break through the firewall so as to reveal your location. After further research into TextNow, users might want to use extreme caution before using this app as you might notice that many of your text communications, simply, disappear without a trace, especially those with pictures and/or attachments. You will notice, there’s no means to recover them or no genius at TextNow to contact for assistance. What I do not understand is the number of you dumb users who are complaining about this lame app, but choose to grade it at 3/4/5. I guess, if I understood stupid, so would I’d be. This app is worthless!
  • I like u but idk idk

    By carjs
    I just updated (Apr29) so hopefully a few bugs have been cleared. EDIT. NO. The problems still persist. I’m on an iPhone SE. 11.3.1. I often have problems with incoming phone calls going straight to missed phone call. (I figured out a possible loophole to get it to alert me by adding the number to my contacts). I have problems with the app getting stuck in landscape mode when I need it to switch to portrait (otherwise I can’t press the numbers during the phone call and I fear touching my home button will cause it to hang up). I have had ads come on during a phone call causing the call to disconnect. This seems to happen when the phone is stuck in landscape mode and open. The landscape glitch causes the phone to stay open. I have been using this app for almost 2 years. These problems have only started to occur for me in the last few months.
  • Great.......but a few problems

    By Jerhoads
    I got this app in fifth grade because I wanted to text my friends without having the actual message app. It was great, until I was invited to a group chat. So when my friend invited me to one, I got all the texts from there private account. If I were to text back, it would go to the private account too. Another problem is sending pictures and videos. You can’t at all send videos. When you are trying to send a picture, it takes forever. I was sending a lot of pictures to one of my friends and it took around five minutes to complete it. The calling is nice, but the calls don’t come in all the time for me. Also I will get calls from random people, when I call them back they said that they have never called me before.
  • Horrible

    By Pin pal
    Are use the paid premium version of this app, all of a sudden it stopped working. I could no longer send a text out. If someone texted me first then I can reply to the text but I could not initiate any new texts. I spent two days on their tech-support, which is a chat feature. No resolution, I have had an awful experience. Their customer service is nonexistent. I am pretty sure the issue is that it is time for renewal, I am set up to automatically renew. I do not have a charge on my banking statement for this app, however text now shows that I still have the premium service. I would love to pay and continue using this app but no one can figure out how to charge me and allow me to continue using it - or if that is not the problem figure out what is the problem. In other words, it works great until it doesn’t, and if it doesn’t work good luck figuring out why.
  • Disappointed in this app

    By disappointed mommy in cali
    I’m deleting this app until I find a more reputable and working app. I downloaded this app on my 7 yo daughter’s iPad so her father and I can reach out to her any time when we are not with her. And vice versa. I downloaded the app hoping we can call her anytime. And apparently, that feature does not work for us. She can call us from her iPad but when we call her, it’s not showing that she has a call coming in. But a message will pop up on her window showing a “missed call”. Weird! The other issue is picture sending. Her iPad will not receive pictures. Not sure why but that is another problem with this app when the description says we can send pictures. Anyone with these issues? Developer, please help.
  • Horrible app

    By ModuleA
    This app seems to have been made to harrass people and take away their sense of privasy and security. On 2 seperate occassions my wife and I have been harrassed by 2 different TextNow numbers. And after downloading the app to see how it works, we blocked those numbers by replying #stop but for what? They can just go back in to the app and change their number and get right back to harrassing you. Thats bs! And theres literally nothing you can do about it. Some say change your number but why does he victim have to change? Ive had my number for years and im not about to change my number. 1 because I shouldnt have to and 2 whats to stop this person from grting my new number? I never gave out my number to any strangers that would do this to us. Terminate this app! It serves no purpose!
  • Perfect FREE message/call app

    By Xxrose420
    I got this free app the other day and so far it’s been amazing. I have an iPhone 5 so I assumed it would lag with such an old model of phone but nope! It’s perfect. I can call, receive calls, message, receive messages and I receive picture messages too! Your able to customize sounds for the messages and you can also import your own photo or use the photos the app provides to put as the background on the texting. So far so good. I’m very impressed and satisfied 10/10.
  • One problem

    By mincrafts rude somtimes
    I had a problem that I couldn’t text cause my iMessage and FaceTime broke so I could no longer text or call. I got text now and I can text and call this is a great app and it works just great. But I can text my best friend it just won’t work can you please fix that, but other then that if you can’t text someone because of there phone type this app will let you text that person. Overall great app and thank you for letting me text my friends and family.
  • Great app!

    By Sweet Skye
    I love textnow. I’ve used it with my old iPhone 4s, now that I have my iPhone 5s it works way better. The quality is great, the sound is clear, and I defiantly recommend. You don’t have to worry about credits or anything and that is an app that I have been looking for for awhile. I think it would be great if you could record videos and send them to your friends, family etc, but overall I think you should defiantly give textnow a try!
  • Best Calling & texting app

    By Erlyn Soto
    This is by far the greatest texting and calling app I have had. When I first got it I was 7 and I had my first tablet so I looked for an app that I could call or text my parents in case of an emergency and I found this app and at first I thought I had to pay but I made an account and they gave me a 10 digit phone number and I have used it for about 5 years now and I never doubted this app even though you needed WiFi to use it. IT IS AMAZING
