In the last years, mobile games became more and more popular. This is just natural as today’s mobile games are better and better each day. Better graphics, greater detail level, and improved interactivity. The only two downsides seem to be the game control and the screen resolution. Fortunately, there is a solution for these also. Now you can play your mobile games on your laptop or PC. This is possible with the help of an Android emulator. Check below how you can use an Android emulator and a top 3 list of the best free ones.
What is an Android emulator
An Android emulator is a program that simulates the functionality and the behavior of a phone using the Android operating system. Once installed you can use the same applications as you would on your mobile phone. You can use it for playing your favorites games, like Clash of Clans, or to test other applications.
How to use an Android emulator
There are many Android emulators, some free, some paid. Once you decided which one you want to use, all you have to do is to download it and install it as any other Windows program. Start the program, log in with your Google account and you are all set. You can access Play Store and search for your favorite apps.
Top 3 best free Android emulators
I will start this list with KoPlayer. This is an Android emulator developed for gamers. It offers an above average performance and a smooth-running gaming environment. Of course, it can be used for other Android related purposes as well. Its last update was in January this year so it has all features you could wish for from an Android emulator.
Another great emulator is Leapdroid. Started as two guys project in Silicon Valley, back in 2015, Leapdroid was purchased by Google last year. The development of the app was stopped but you can still find it for download on other reliable sources like this one. Despite this, Leapdroid remains one of the best free Android emulators.
I close the list with Memu, an Android emulator with more than 15 million users so far. One of the special features Memu has is the ability to co-exist with other emulators and have multiple Android instances running at the same time. It runs on Windows 7, 8 and 10 with Intel or AMD technology.
