Experience the magic of Android on your PC!

Want to run Android on a PC? Andy OS allows you to do just that, emulating the complete Android experience on your desktop.

Features of Andy OS

Unlike BlueStacks, which is merely a launcher for Android applications, Andy OS gives you complete access to Google's operating system. You can download and install apps and games through Google Play, or side-load APKs and run them through the Andy OS. This is particularly useful for using messaging apps like WhatsApp, Viber, or LINE from your desktop.

But there's much more to Andy OS than just running apps: the software also supports notifications, widgets, file browsing (including access to the local file system), application data syncing, and full multi-touch gestures.

Andy OS is great for mobile gaming, since it lets you use your phone or tablet as a remote control for the desktop emulator. This is handy for playing certain types of action games, or racing games, for example.

At the time of writing, Andy OS runs Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2. While it's a shame it isn't pre-installed with the latest OS (KitKat 4.4), it's up to date enough that it should run most apps.

Is it easy to use?

Andy OS isn't quite as simple to use as BlueStacks, in the sense that it requires a little bit more setup. That said, it's still very easy. Andy OS runs through VirtualBox virtual machine, which comes bundled with the installer. Once you've downloaded and installed the software, you simply run the application and go through the Android configuration options as you would on a first-run of a regular mobile device.

I experienced the occasional glitch when running the application, although in general it works pretty smoothly.

Andy OS is great for 'power users' because it can be customized in a number of ways. For starters, you can change the way it runs in the virtual machine, allocating more RAM for example, to make it run faster. But you can also root the Android operating system through Andy OS, allowing you more customization within the OS itself. If you want to install custom ROMs or change to a different launcher, you can.

The best way to get Android on your desktop

Andy OS is pretty simple to set up, highly customizable, and gives you a complete Android experience.

If you just want to play popular casual games or run simple apps, BlueStacks is a more hassle-free solution. But if you want to properly emulate Android on Windows, call on Andy OS.

Run your Android apps directly from your PC!

Andy breaks the barrier between desktop and mobile computing, while keeping you up-to-date with the latest Android OS feature upgrades. It also provides users with unlimited storage capacity, PC compatibility, and the freedom to play the most popular mobile games on a desktop.

With the use of your phone as a joystick, you never have to sacrifice the multi-touch or gyro elements of gaming. And thanks to seamless connection between desktop and mobile, you can receive a SnapChat phone picture on the street and see it on your desktop at home!

Only Andy syncs to the users' Google play account through the cloud. This means that if you got to level 16 on your phone this morning, you're not starting back at level 1 when playing after work on your PC. Only with Andy are your devices synced, so you'll never loose that near-perfect score.
