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

  • Lousy App

    By soynikkic
    I want to like this app. It sounds like a great product that would allow you to utilize your xfinity communication services all in one place without having to connect to Apple Mail or be near your home phone. However, it rarely works and has not worked as designed for over a year. It sends notifications about emails and phone calls received, but when I tap the notification the server is never able to retrieve the email and I am never able to answer a call from the app. In order to use the email function I have to force close the app EVERY time I want to use it, sometimes even during the same email checking session. It is also the same anytime I open the Connect app without having had a notification. If it has been running in the background it will not work without being force closed. As for the telephone portion, I have only been able to look at missed calls. The app will not answer calls or dial out. The voicemail does work well as does the speech to text feature. I keep waiting for this app to improve functionality, but am surprised at how long that it has taken. I’ve tried various quick fixes that typically work with malfunctioning apps, such as, deleting and reinstalling, but they have not helped.
  • Only way to receive emails on Apple Products

    By Ali's cat
    Very appreciative to have access to email via the Connect App. Due to “bugs” with the operating system on my Apple products (Smart Phone, Lap Top & Tablet), the Connect App is the only way I can receive and send emails via Comcast which; I should add, is the primary email address utilized for correspondence. If I send emails from my phone, I have to utilize an iCloud account. If this App wasn’t available, I would not be able to receive or reply to messages sent to my Comcast account. I have tried multiple troubleshooting methods to fix the Apple bug to no avail. Glad I have this “work around.” The only feature I would like to see added is the following: When I send correspondence outside of the App (i.e. sending feedback or questions within online forms), I can not access the correspondence in the “Sent” folder in the App. The only “sent” emails that can be accessed must originate directly from the Connect App. If that can be fixed it would be perfect.

  • Greatly improved

    I shared the frustrations expressed by others here with this app until, I believe, Version 6.7.1 auto-updated on both my iPhone and IPad Pro a few months ago. Previously, if I wanted to check my inbox, loaded and updated with every new email, or current with items sent to trash or spam, I would have to log out, and log back in. And often I would get a false error message telling me that I was not connected to the internet, which wouldn’t go away. This would force me to delete the app, reinstall it, then log in and wait for it to completely update. This took way too long and I was very frustrated. Since the update ( which coincided with a new look to the app’s badge ), all of these frustrations are gone and the app, after a short delay, automatically fetches new emails into my inbox, and the emails open when selected. A miracle! It took Comcast too long to fix this app, but now that it has, I’m giving five stars, a high five and an ‘Atta-Boy’!
  • Call blocking and screening needed

    By TigerWizards
    It is needed that call blocking for scam and unwanted calls be easier than a limited number of blocks that you have to go online to the website to enter the number you want to block. This is so time consuming and error prone. Getting pen and paper, writing the number call and hunting through the Xfinity site to find where the blocked number is to be entered. I suggest the Developer take a look at apps like Mr Number that shares several types of unwanted and scam call directories, notes from users about the nature of the calls and easy grab, copy a number you want to block and open the Mr Number app to allow blocking and to see info on known history of the number and call notes. A connection to a telephone data base, wider than Xfinity's and or one mobile service expands uses access to names and or location info associates with a number. Make blocking really work. These calls are not just irritating but potentially dangerous.
  • Needs improvement

    This app is getting worse instead of better. It is getting harder and harder to get and open email. Went to the Xfinity store and they could not fix the problem and said I would have to wait until Xfinity updates the app. Well update the app!!! Fix the email problems!! The previous version of Xfinity was better. When Opening this version it does not automatically update your email. You have to physically pull down and update the email manually. It also has a connection problem that you have to refresh before any updating is done. It tells me I have a voicemail message when actually there is none. You need to be able to create folders from the mobile app. On the iPad, The email does not automatically refresh. You have to physically close the program and then reopen it for it to work. I called and they said remove the program and reinstall which I have done several times and still have the same problem. They really need to get this app fixed. It has great potential but there are too many flaws!
  • Xfinity refuses to fix

    I downloaded this app not long after it came out. It worked beautifully for a long time. Then about 7 to 9 months ago they released an update that totally screwed up email. It caused constant error messages saying no network found and email will not refresh unless you closed the app down and restarted it. You have to do this constantly to get email to work properly. Xfinity’s only answer was to delete and download the app again which does not fix the problem. Myself and many other paying Xfinity customers have made repeated posts on the Xfinity help forum about the problems with this app going back to Sept. of last year and Xfinity has done nothing to fix it. I personally found a temporary fix by turning off the background refresh switch for the app in my device settings. This fix is still working for me but it did not help many others in the help forum who are literally begging for Xfinity’s help to fix this app. If you are thinking about downloading this app DONT DO IT! You’ll experience nothing but total frustration. It’s really a shame because when it worked it was a great app.
  • Missing Emails

    2
    By Xfinity336
    I have several different folders that I use every single day. The problem started the first week of July. Every email I directed to move to the proper folder never made it with this app. They just disappeared. When I investigated on the xfinity dot com site. The lost email were in their correct folder. Just not on the xfinity connect app. So now when my emails mysteriously disappear, I have to delete the app and reinstall. I also have the same problem another app subscriber has...my phone indicates I have a new voice message...which is never there. They told me it’s my phone. So I purchased a new phone and the app still said I had a new voice message, however the new phone notified me my subscriber (Comcast)has a new voice message for me. I never use the phone recorder, I only use Xfinity to record voice messages. So I took the phone back for a refund. I have had to uninstall the app and reinstall several times. Very annoying. This app needs major updating with all these bugs. Back to the drawing board xfinity. Please fix these issues.
  • Used To Be Mediocre, Now Worse...

    By DJ007Storm108
    A while back, I said this app was “Mediocre At Best”. I can’t even say that anymore. The app hasn’t improved for email, it’s only gotten worse. Yes, I’ve tried the “tried and true” method of deleting and re-installing the app multiple times, still doesn’t work that well. There are times, regardless of connection, that I’ll get a new email, try to open it up, see the header, and then the body of the email itself will go into an unending “loading” pattern. There are other times when I go to delete an email - I refresh the screen and the old email that I just deleted reappears again, as brand new again. I have to delete it twice. Other times, I see that I have a new email, and nothing pops up - I try to refresh the email and no new email pops up until I manually close and restart the app. Perhaps it’s time to split the email portion away from the app. Perhaps make it available as part of the iOS “Mail” function, instead of having us use a very buggy iOS app to view our Comcast email.
  • Email takes forever to update or never update

    1
    By Animorphd546
    Email is totally useless since it was updated a couple of months ago. Email through this Connect app uses a ton of data and either does not update at all, no matter how many times you pull down to refresh, or in the 1 in 10 times the refresh actually works, it takes a Long time. If you have background refresh enabled, it will use all your data for the month quickly and still email will usually not be updated when you open the app. This problem is on the "server" side because email is also unusable from the native iPhone email app. Usually it doesn't refresh at all when you pull down for refresh and on the rare occasion that it does update it takes forever and it shows about 200 emails being downloaded even though there are only 20 or so new messages. Please fix ASAP, I haven't been able to use email on the iPhone for more than a month. It's enough of an issue that I will probably ditch Comcast altogether.
