Run Android Apps/Games on PC With Arc Welder (Chrome Browser)

Hey there! So, in my last post, I talked about Arc Welder for trying out Android apps and games. Today, there are lots of programs that let you use or run Android apps on your computer, like Bluestacks, YouWave, GenyMotion, Jar of Beans, Android SDK, or Andyroid. But Arc Welder is a bit special—it’s not a full emulator, more like a tester. You grab it from the Chrome Web Store and it works only with Chrome Browser.

Want to use your Android apps with Arc Welder? It’s pretty simple! Just follow these steps to get started playing your favorite games or using your apps on your computer with Arc Welder and Chrome Browser.

  1. For those that wanted to test using this method, Clash of Clans will work, but it is very buggy, like most apps you run there.
