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

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.

App Reviews

  • Love the game but there is a problem and update Minecraft please read

    By freindly owl
    Please add mods for iPad I will appreciate that a that I will play Minecraft forever I love this game a lot. Add like a place where people can put ears on like animal ears the look realistic and Minecraft like ears and tails. Add a place where people can change their size also change the legs make it work for severs and the games of people don’t add special effects of the character and people can save it. Keep up the amazing and awesome work you can make it today days, weeks, months, years seconds, minutes, milliseconds or nanoseconds I don’t even care how long it takes. The problem is when I make my Minecraft game most of the Water don’t flow and I don’t like it a lot thanks happy holidays :D . Love the game forgot to say add more plants to Minecraft like poison ivy and poison oak for land now time for under water. Moss balls and duck weed make fresh water plants die in the ocean. Make salt water plants die in fresh water then make a water bucket a new one like ocean water and lake water thanks if you do this all or a little. Even add more mobs and aquatic animals add a shark and other animals form lakes and the ocean a whale. My favorite type of shrimp is ghost shrimp please add that type of shrimp there not for eating you can make the player eat it it’s your game right. Make the animals eat to survive love you see your game now I will play it today at a server I hope you can see me there.
  • Amazing- here's why

    By Corgi1982
    I love this game, it is my favorite in the whole world. The reason why is because if you have any idea- here is a place that you can make it. I have made castles that takes minutes just to get from one side to the other (they are really big) and I have made houses that have twenty levels. I have made cross country skiing courses, that are huge! Mushroom tree houses, islands of chickens, underwater mine cart, you name it! Any out of the box idea is capable of being done, and no idea is to small or big. My friends and I all have Minecraft, and we support each other in our ideas and help with them too. It has made our friendship stronger the past few years, and will continue to. We can all play on it together, and it still remains with no glitches. Another thing, most people like the building and mining part of Minecraft, but the graphics are beautiful. The under the water scenes with the dolphins and coral to the canyons with the red, white, yellow, and brown clay. The lakes and the jungles. Even the swamps are pretty! It also has real work situations, like hunger and how you need to find a place to sleep at night. It has helped me get a head start in science, when we went through the minerals section o knew what had ores and how to reduce it down to its values and I knew which minerals you would see first when diving straight down. Thank you to the creators of Minecraft, for making such a wonderful game.
  • Suggestions, Suggestions, Suggestions!

    By Keagan.TL4L
    Hi, This game is fantastic but a few things.. Where are the turtles? I can’t find them! Please add a turtle spawn egg. I’d appreciate it very much. And some suggestions - Please add so the animals are more realistic and you need to feed them to keep them alive, Please add mud, They could be crafted with dirt and a water bucket, You get 6 mud blocks for each. Or you can just pour a bucket of water over a patch of dirt. Once the mud is placed if there are pigs nearby they will be attracted to the mud and do a rolling animation. Can you make it so there is a nest item? You can craft it by using sticks in an upside down helmet shape. If you breed 2 chickens and a nest is nearby, The chicken will go to the nest and sit in it, They will lay an egg in the nest, Also can you make the egg hatch on its own if you leave it? They would take 10 to 15 minutes to hatch. Make a food trough. You can store animal food in the trough and the appropriate animal will come and eat it when hungry. Also, Can you make more types of dogs? Such as the Desert dog, They spawn in desert and have a body the color of sand, They also have a cactus tail. Also, can you add more types of cats? Like a black cat, It would be like the tuxedo cat but be all black and yellow eyes. Thanks for reading this, I hope you listen to my suggestions. If you do, Then thank you! If you listen to these ideas you could call it “The Farm Update”.
  • Love it!…But

    By Critterlover2.0
    I love Minecraft, it is a great multiplayer game and I think it has really come a long way since the beginning. I have been playing Minecraft since the release of the first game, and it has just gotten better and better. But this game could use some improvements especially for mobile users. I feel like the computer users of Minecraft get updates quicker. For instance I have seen people on computers that have the full aquatic update , while I’m on an iPad and I am only now getting news of this update plus it is coming so slowly. Another problem I have with this game is the in-app purchases I mean I know they have added coins but you still have to buy those coins with your real life money. I wish that they had a way that you could somehow earn the coins in game by playing and achieving certain goals. I also think this game needs more mobs they have all these biomes but so little animals they should have different animals and mobs for each biome. Just one idea for the game I had too was Eskimos can be like the villagers of the snow biomes. Finally, another issue I have is the LAG if I have a certain amount of worlds the game lags like crazy to where I can’t play the game. I hope you consider these problems and think about ways to fix them and please get the updates to users at the same time. I have been a Minecraft user for many years and I would like to see the game be improved.
  • Animals!!!

    By A. B. D.
    I love this game so much, and I think that it would be great if more forest animals existed. Foxes, grizzly bears, deer, butterflies, and bees. I would love to see these animals in this wonderful game would add some more feel to it. I also like this idea: when you tame a dog, the collar shouldn’t automatically appear on its neck. The collar should be an item that you can dye by mixing colors in a cauldron, just like you would for leather armor, then, you can go to the dog and click a button that says “put on collar” and if you want to swap it or take it off, press “remove collar,” and you’ll get it back. If you have another collar in your hand, and the dog is wearing one, press “swap” which would swap the two collars, giving the one it was previously wearing. I think that the collars should be sort of like armor, protecting them, or increasing their health or something like that. And I think that if the dog doesn’t have a collar, it cannot teleport to the owner. For example, without one, it can follow the owner, but cannot teleport because that would be the collars specialty p. When you put the collar on it, it could gain the ability to teleport when you get too far away. And if somehow the dog lagged behind and couldn’t teleport to the owner, it will sit down and wait. If another player sees the dog and holds on it, it could see who the owner is. Please consider adding these. Thanks, SunriseFox
  • Swimming update is garbage

    By TheKnownUnknown
    I’m typically not one to write a review. But when I do, it’s usually to get a point out there. Don’t read this and think “oh this must be a bad game” because it’s not. It is a good game, just this water movement update really stinks. The swimming update is so horrible, it takes me about a whole minute just to try to get out of the water because when you “jump” out of the water, the controls switch from the weird water ones with the up/down arrows on the right and the fly button in the center of the d-pad to the normal ones with the diamond jump in the center d-pad and he crouch on the right (or visa verse depending on custom settings). Due to this switch, it makes it extremely hard to get out of the water, not to mention you can either press the “fly” button while in water for move up OR you can more forward. One or the other. You can’t do what you did on land and hold the run while pressing the jump when needed, nope, you need to go to the edge of the water, “jump” up and down for a bit and hope you’re able to press the forward movement at the right time. This water update is great, BUT THE CONTROLS FOR IT ARE SO BAD! If there was an option to SWITCH back to the OLD swimming controls, then there would be no need for this review. Also, I’ve noticed a few water bugs where you get to the edge of where water is supposed to fall into a new area but dosent. (i.e. the water runs to a cliff and just stops and doesn’t run over the edge)
  • It's Good, But...

    By 🌗🌗🌘🌜🌚🌕🌿🌿🍂
    I speak for everybody when I say you need to make the updates bigger. We need shields, MODS that we can install easily and for free, command blocks, capes, light switches, invisible blocks ,villagers that you can interact with(things other than trading), maps that you can easily download, and changing your name and skin without exiting the game. Every time I see that Minecraft has a new update, I get super excited because I’ve had Minecraft since Minecraft Lite was a thing (you 9 year olds have no idea what I’m talking about). I click on the update and all it says is “Minor improvements” or “bug fixes” and I have no problem with the bug fixes. They make the game kind of better. But I think all of us writing to you can agree that mods would make Minecraft PE so much better. And just think about how many more downloads you’ll get. Also you should make a REAL free minecraft. Like, keep this one, but make a free version that’s kind of similar to minecraft lite. My younger sister DREAMS or getting minecraft but she can’t because she’s five and she doesn’t have seven dollars to pay. Thank you for your time and I’m sorry you had to read this, but I was bored and had nothing else to do so yeah. Bye and thanks(if you do decide to make any of these changes, it would make me and a lot of other people SO happy.)(p.s it says “look like your actually swimming, but it’s not working so like if you could fix that too, it would be awesome.) okay now I’m done. Bye ~Caroline
  • I love this game could be better plz more animals

    By iamodin999
    Ok my #1 problem is not enough animals we need wayyy more tigers lions leopards and much more! The dolphins are new and coming out soon and I think that was a huge improvement but you need a little more like mice and stuff. Secondly, make the mobs we have currently do more the dolphins should be able to eat smaller fish if they currently can’t there should be more things that are “domesticated” not just wolfs and cats like fish bowls and maybe a little new skin action for that mobs zombies should be at least able to have different cloths from Steve’s shirt to Alex’s pants and the dogs plz make some dog skins like pugs and golden retrievers not just the cats, some more types of cats and dogs and more ways to tame them and they should do more stuff like the dog for instance, can fetch items for you as long he/she’s commanded to like maybe a new button so the songs serve a purpose he cats make sense, cats usually just sit around on couches and stuff unless they’re on catnip! Add it make it happen dev’s, catnip, the world runs on catnip Thirdly more furniture that cost sticks and wool or wood and sticks in a certain order now plz make turtles domesticatable and we need to be able to ride them I’m tired of boats I mean they are cool and all we need more aquatic updates! That’s all for now plz make some of this happen thx have a good day🤣

    By StayAtHomeMomOnTheGo
    I absolutely love this game and me and my brother always play but there is a bug... when I put a CD into the Jukebox it won't play its just silent... but I have a couple ideas! I think you should add things like more dog and cat textures and collars for cats and things like toys and boats and something my little brother has always wanted is fourwheelers and trucks and cars and motorcycles and animal wise I think there should be Unicorns Zebras Foxes Squirrels And Deer and then maybe Fairylights and the CANDY DIMENSION!!!!!!!!! And a way to get to the moon and hot air balloons and shading and things like furniture like fridges and couches and chairs and sinks etc.. I love how there are no ads! And maybe detailed villagers and maybe bunk beds cabinets cat trees dog houses and what I mean about more dog textures I mean things like the dogs in Stacy Plays series dogcraft I feel like the PC version has a lot more better mods and things like that and I kinda think if you added things like this stuff you would get a lot more downloads and the app would grow and I think the app is kinda to expensive but I hope you read this and this all comes in the next year or so because I know this would take a long time BUT one more thing... things like the mod you would download for the 100 baby challenge thing for the PC version etc... hope you read this! Thank you!
  • Great app! But...

    By Djsull
    I for one think this app is amazing! There’s just one problem! Animals. There should definitely be more animals like sharks, whales, deer ect. Also there should be more food! Like sandwiches on the iPad they don’t have that food! Donuts, icecream , and other things like that aren’t on the iPad! There’s is also less furniture there should be like couches and chairs instead for couches I have to you use stairs! I think there should be turtles and ducks and moose and other types of bears, bee hives, birds, snakes, also there should be a portal to a dinosaur world or something like Jurassic park lol. Also I think there should be more steps to baking like you should get a bowl and a spoon and put in milk and eggs ect. There should also be more things to bake like lemon loaf muffin cupcakes other types of cake that don’t give special affects! Like a chocolate one! The should be more types of weathers randomly like hurricane or ,tsunami and occasionally not to powerful tornados and I know what you thinking people would be really mad to have tornados ruin their progress I mean I would too! I’m saying add it not picking any thing up but it/in the distance. Lastly you should make cars and bike I know you already have these probably but like for free! I hope you take this into consideration I love Minecraft I really do but I wish there could be more the game it’s self! Jauvajuice
