Many users especially Android app developers want emulators to run apps on their PC. Many application developers use emulators to test the app for multiple versions of android.

Here is the list of top emulators that you must try on your PC.
Bluestacks is the first name that comes to our mind when anyone talks about Android Emulators. It is also the most popular Android Emulators for PC. It is available for Windows as well as Mac. It is the best choice to play mobile games as it is very powerful. They also claim that Bluestacks is approximately 6 times faster than your typical smartphone.

GenyMotion is one of the best Android Emulators for PC and is mostly famous among Android developers. GenyMotion lets you test your apps on multiple android versions without actually owning them. It is based on x86 architecture, therefore faster than Bluestacks which is also on our list. It also provides hardware acceleration support.
AndyRoid can be installed on Microsoft Windows 7, 8.1, 10, and also on Mac OS. It comes with some unique and useful features that can not be found on any Emulators on this list.
