Jide recently released Remix OS for Windows PCs, allowing users to install its deskt0p version of Android on their PC. Remix OS was pretty cool on Windows, but the installation process was quite hard for some — especially for those who aren’t really into tech. Today, the company released Remix OS Player, which is basically an Android emulator for Windows. Remix OS Player comes in an .EXE file, just like any other desktop app for Windows — and the installation process is seamless, too.

With the Remix OS Player, users can run any Android app or game they want on Windows. From games like Clash of Clans, to apps like Snapchat — you can run any apps from the Google Play Store on your Windows PC using the Remix OS Player. Here’s an introduction video showing off Remix OS Player below:

While this is indeed pretty cool, it may not be quite useful, to be honest. Firstly, Remix OS Player can only use 3GB of RAM on your PC, which means even if you want to give it more power — you can’t, at least not yet. As a result of this, Remix OS may lag quite a bit if you have a lot of apps open. But then again, you probably won’t be using Remix OS all the time on your Windows PC — however, it surely is lot better than Bluestacks.

If you would like to install Remix OS Player on your Windows PC, you can download it from here. Before you go ahead and download it, make sure to check out the recommended system requirements which are listed below:

  • Windows 7 (64-bit) or newer
  • Core i3 (Recommend Core i5 or Core i7)
  • 4GB RAM
  • 8GB Storage (Recommend 16GB)
  • Internet access is helpful
  • Enabled Virtualization Technology in BIOS
