How to play cloud Android games on Windows with BlueStacks X
BlueStacks, we bet you must have heard of this service program which allows user to download and run Android games and apps on Windows 11/10 computer. It’s quite popular, and it’s understandable, since Android apps are plentiful and not yet available on the desktop.
The people behind this app have released a new version called BlueStacks X, a service that runs through the browser, which means there is nothing to download to your computer. Just launch the official website and start playing some of your favorite Android games right in the web browser.
It’s an exciting concept, and you know what? It works. Not perfect, of course, but we managed to play a few games in a short period of time using the BlueStacks X service.
What is BlueStacks X?
BlueStacks X is the world’s first cloud-based Android video game service. It will allow you to play games on any device with a supported web browser, without needing to download them. You don’t have to have a gaming PC, console, or even a controller to experience what BlueStacks X has to offer. This is because the games are streamed directly from the server to your computer. Keep in mind that you will need a high speed internet connection for best results.
How do I get BlueStacks X?
OK, so the first thing to do is visit x.bluestacks.com and make sure to connect with your Google, Facebook, Where Discord Account. We’re talking about a desktop app, but every time we select the download link, the servers keep giving us BlueStacks 5. We suspect that the Desktop app is not yet ready for prime time.
How to play cloud Android games on Windows
Using BlueStacks on the web is very easy. The information below should give you all the necessary knowledge you need.
- BlueStacks X home page
- Log in with your account credentials
- Play cloud games
- Play a game on BlueStacks X
- Search for a specific title
- BlueStacks X Settings
1]BlueStacks X home page
After opening x.bluestacks.com in your web browser, you should land on the home page. Here you will have several games which you can play through the web browser or stream through the desktop version of BlueStacks X.
2]Log in with your account credentials
Before you can play any of the games, you need to log in first. To do this, click on the profile icon at the top right of the window, then choose from the three available choices.
3]Play cloud games
If you want to play cloud-only games, click on the section on the left that reads Cloud games. You should now see a list of games that you can play in the cloud. It’s not a huge number, but we believe it will increase in the coming months.
4]Play a game on BlueStacks X
When it comes to playing your favorite games, you’ll want to hover over a title and then click Play in the cloud. Right away, the game should load in your web browser with keyboard and mouse controls.
Some games will show a download button instead. You can only play it with the BlueStacks X Desktop app, so keep that in mind.
We have to note that there are only 13 cloud games available, but a lot more offline Android games to choose from.
5]Search for a specific title
Yes, you can do that using the search box above. You’ll find almost any game, but like we said the majority are download-only.
6]BlueStacks X settings
If you select the Settings area, you see that there is not much to do. You can leave comments to the developers and change your language, and that’s it.
BlueStacks X on the web isn’t bad. It works as expected, but there aren’t a lot of cloud-based Android games out there, and that’s the main reason you’ll want to use the service. Until the numbers have improved and gamers can get a chance to stream many popular titles, people should take a wait-and-see approach.
