Using Snapchat 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 Snapchat on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

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.

3: How to Use Snapchat for Windows PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and locate the search bar. Now type Snapchat in the search bar and hit Search. You will easily see the app. Click on Snapchat application icon. A window of Snapchat 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.
Next, you will see the "All Apps" icon.
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.

    So Snapchat is an awesome app and I use it every day to talk to friends. Specifically through texting. I don't use the actual camera aspect of the app much. However, the main reason for having Snapchat is to interact with friends through texting. But I feel we could make that even better, while bitmoji is a great way to express your emotions maybe we could add a drawing aspect to the chat. You would just be able to draw a photo and pin it to the chat instead of having to take a snap and draw a photo. Furthermore to make the texting aspect even better for Snapchat app developers can add the option to play message games. Like how iPhones have iMessage games for example 8 Ball. Crazy 8 (Uno). Checkers. 9 Ball, and 8 Ball+. Adding the option to play message games would help make the chats more interactive between the writers. This, in my opinion, is an idea that would help boost Snapchat's already increasing number of users every day. Especially for people who get bored of just sending photos in texting. Plus I can already tell this is something that Instagram or any other social media application isn't thinking about. While everyone is concerned with making the ability to post photos and videos better on their feed you Snapchat can easily upgrade your chatting/texting features. Considering the fact that everything else on this app seems to work just fine! Well, I hope that you app developers see this and put my idea into consideration for a future update.

    Snapchat is honestly the best. I use it totals to my friends and communicate with basically everyone. Snapchat can be bad depending on the people you are dealing with. Some people send highly inappropriate things to one another which should be completely blocked from the app. At my age the people I know we all basically use this to talk. No one texts anymore it’s Snapchat I don’t have half the people’s number that I have on Snapchat because we don’t need to text anymore it’s just Snapchat is the way you get people talk and while adults think that it’s such a bad app it isn’t. You just have to accept the people you know as your friends you can’t just accept anyone and I 100 percent understand that some bad people are on the internet but young people this is how we talk and get to know each other. No one goes out on there bikes anymore and just knocks on there friend door and says hey mr or mrs who. It’s not like that anymore. You can’t trust your neighbors like you use to be able to. While I’m not saying the internet is such a safe place either but people should just have some common sense and accept people that you only know. It’s a fun app and parents doubt it a lot. I’m on it 24/7 and I love the app I’m just in love with it I’ve had it since I was in 1st grade and you know what it was worth it. Get Snapchat but just be wise with your decisions or they will come back and bite you in the end always remember that!!!
  • Simply jumbled

    I really enjoy Snapchat. I use it for the majority of my communication with my friends. I have received the latest update and like so many other people I’m not impressed. If you look at your reviews they have gone down from the last time I checked of at least three stars down to 1.8 stars. People are not happy and I think you need to realize that yes the Bitmoji’s are great and we like them a lot but the update itself has gotten very confusing. I’m the kind of person that only likes to look at my friends stories but I find myself always looking at people stories I don’t care about simply because I’m just tapping through. I also dislike the fact that when I go and see my Discover I see stories that I have already seen on my chat side. The text is gotten smaller and darker and it’s hard for my vision. I would request that you would make it easier for people to see without having to make all of these changes just to see their Snapchat. I have you Snapchat for many years and have enjoyed it but this update is simply not good. There are some aspects that I like but stories on the same side as chat is not a good idea. However I would like to compliment you on the fact that you added more fonts however they take up a lot of space on my chat screen I would like to see them smaller or perhaps able to come up when I tap a button. I don’t need the old Snapchat back I do want a revised version of the two. Just be wary of your customers who brought you all your money.
  • I’m begging you

    As much as I hated the new update in the beginning (the update that put stories and friends on the same page), I have grown to like it. However, I think the app is lacking some basic features that we’ve been asking for for a long time. Firstly, we need a way to easily remove and add people to your best friends list. You can’t imagine how awkward it is when someone gets on my list and I know I’m not on theirs, which means they get that pesky friend emoji by my name (and vice versa). Although the current list is supposedly based on who I snapchat the most, those aren’t always the people I want to snapchat. I have a lot of friends who have been kicked off my list by people that I don’t want to snapchat that much and it’s very annoying. A lot of times I’ll take a funny video that I want to send to all my real irl best friends but then only half of them are on the list and I have to search for a bunch of people. Also, it would be nice if everyone had a list of their top three or four best friends under their name when you press and hold on it. This was a cool feature that snapchat had a long time ago that you guys got rid of, but it was really nice to see who your friends were friends with and potentially add them as friends. I think that if you were to add these features it would likely constitute a glowing five-star review from not only me but lots of other users, which is something I can see you desperately need right now.
  • Please software fix and more freedom pls

    By oliSagger
    I noticed because of my friend that the iphone xs max when a picture is taken the screen for other phones looking at the picture stretches the image cutting part of it off like text or someones hand or foot etc. and i have a iphone 7, i dont know if it does the same for other model iphones. now to the freedom part, the amount of freedom in the stories “hide” option is very basic we need an option to be able to block something permanently like buzzfeed for example I absolutely hate buzzfeed and I don’t want to even see it in the stories section because everything they post is either clickbait, pointless, to rile people up, cause conflict, and etc. please allow a button that has the option to “hide this publisher” and if you want to unhide it then you can in the manage tab in the settings also make the content tags less specific ill watch a story and drag or fashion pops up everytime for some reason even though the stories i just watch has no where near close to anything all i watch is sports plays and updates and game updates so please fix this also private stories you make please make them able to edit afterwards like last time before the update came i have to keep making a new private story every time just too keep one group of friends in one area from the other group and i never remember who is all allowed to see the private snap and always need to change who can see what or not pls bring that back
  • Some thoughts on this update and some bugs I found

    By MandaaPandas
    Lets start off by saying this update is not the worst thing but also not the best in anyway. The update made my chat page feel cluttered but in a weird way look nice. The update also makes you watch all the stories unless you click off of it which I don’t mind because i did that anyways. The think I don’t like about this is that between each story there is a page that says the persons name. It just annoys me because I can just look at the top where it says your name. Now on the discover page i don’t like how i was getting Snapchat stories from people I never followed. For example I don’t have RCL Beauty but she popped up on my discover page for some reason. Along with other “famous” people or influencers. The last thing negative about this is I lost 6 of my streaks at the time of writing this because of a glitch where you have the person added and it says that you dont and when you try to add them it doesn’t work. I contacted Snapchat support on this issue to try and get my streaks back nothing happened. I lost 3 100 days 2 200 days and a streak with my best friend that we had since we met. And another thing I think your trophies are not working because I did the flip the camera one and I flipped it more then enough times and no trophy . Now I like the text and Bitmoji things that you did but not the things I described before Thanks for reading
  • I did not ask for this update.

    I have been on snapchat for years now and have loved it up until this past update. I feel before this update, everything was convenient and easy to find. Everything had its own page. Now the whole app is jumbled and cluttered. There is so much to see on my messages page that half the time I won’t even notice if I have a new snapchat. I also can’t stand that stories are no longer in order, or even possible to find as a consistent long list of them without ads or other random things to click on in between. I am not going to stop using snapchat, but I am absolutely using it less. This isn’t even because I don’t want to, it’s just too weird now. I feel like I will never see anyone’s stories anymore besides close friends, and no one will ever see mine. I almost feel like this new update draws more attention to the celebrities and companies using snapchat rather than your friends, I think this since every time I go to the discovery page I see celebrities before I even see my friends, and it is not because they posted more recently. I am also extremely mad over this since I did not even choose to update the app, I just opened it and it was different. Even tried a method I found on the internet to degrade it which worked until I woke up this morning to find it had updated again. This is what makes me the most mad, I don’t care that there’s a new update but I do care that it is being forced on me when I do not want it.
  • Used to love Snapchat, now just like it

    By Brookenicole345
    The new update isn’t horrible...just gonna take some time getting used to. That being said, there are some things that need tweaked. First, why did every single conversation that I deleted re appear? And why is there no option to delete all? I don’t want to have to go through 4+ years of conversations and delete each one individually. Second, when I go to delete conversations I don’t want the option to delete a story before I’ve seen it. I’ll get used to them being jumbled together, granted it’s unorganized but whatever, but I think that page would look so much less hectic if people could delete their conversations (and only the conversations) all together. That way the stories for the most part will still all be together and the messages will be separate. Although I don’t snap as many people as some do, so I’m sure it will still be pretty jumbled and confusing for some. Third, why can I longer just quickly see a list of my friends? Only seeing that list when I want to send something seems rather dumb...and if it’s someone I don’t snap much then they won’t be in my conversations area either. There’s people I don’t remember adding and want to delete, but if I can’t remember them then I can’t search for them either. Idk just seems odd that a small portion needs to be taken away, I think it would make figuring this new update out a bit easier.
  • Used to love- now it feels cluttered

    By ThatsJustHowItIs
    I have been using Snapchat for years now- like since the days where you had to pay for replays and more filters. And I’ve watched it blossom into a multi-functional app that is becoming more user-friendly and inclusive. However, I am really not a fan of this new update. I liked having everyone’s stories and my messages in a separate place, and the best friends/streaks emojis are so small now, I can almost guarantee I’ll lose all my streaks because I won’t be able to tell where they are. Anyone with trouble seeing small text is definitely going to have issues with it. I’m also finding it’s really hard to open messages now, because half the time I end up clicking on the person’s story, or it ends up bringing up their map location/username/settings. The discovery page feels cluttered, and I strongly dislike having “recommended” stories in my feed. It was so much easier to navigate beforehand. I’m not going to stop using Snapchat, because it’s the quickest and easiest way for me to talk to my friends and see what everyone is doing. And I love the new Bitmoji settings, it adds a lot more variety and I love the diversity of the hairstyles. But I’m really not a fan of a lot of the features in the new update, and so far the majority of my friends are saying the same thing. I really hope you guys can find a better, easier to navigate solution with larger text.

    I wanna get one thing straight: Snapchat- is not the “#1 sexting app.” I personally don’t know who made that load of crap up but it really isn’t. I’m 16, and i won’t lie, i’ve personally came across pornographic type snaps and videos before. If people are really gonna use that as an excuse to get rid of their son / daughter’s snapchat, you might as well get rid of all of their social media, don’t let them watch television, and only give them picture books. As parents, you should expect your son/daughter to be responsible with it. I’ve actually removed people who i think post too much revealing/pornographic. Like i would expect parents to be smarter with this. SNAPCHAT ITSELF DOES NOT CONDONE WHAT PEOPLE POST. It’s seriously up to you as parents to see who they have. It really gets on my nerves about this. I read a review about how a guy apparently got a video of a girl giving a guy a hickey and etc, FROM THE CAR IN FRONT OF HIM. Well... That’s actually almost impossible... unless you have that person on snapchat. If you find their content offending or inappropriate, there’s this wonderful button called the REPORT AND BLOCK. I mean seriously, you parents should take a course on how to use your phone. This is like one of the most common kind of things out there. Just goes to show how idiotic parents are these days 🤷🏼‍♂️
