STATES CHRONICLE – If you’re an Android user, you probably got used to all the apps and games provided by the market by now. However, if you own an older device, or perhaps a Windows phone, you most likely missed out on quite a big number of fun games and apps. Unless you’ve been using BlueStacks. The platform allows Windows users to access Android apps on their PC. Well, now you can enjoy an upgraded BlueStacks 2 for Windows.
As the app hit its 109 million downloads mark, the people behind it decide to give the platform an upgrade. So, starting today, the 2.0 version of the app, dubbed BlueStacks 2, is available for download on the app’s official website.
Even though it’s used by over 100 million people worldwide, the app still had its limitations, with the user not being able to have more than one app open, or even to download an app while playing with a different one. With the new 2.0 version, this, as well as much more, is possible.
The Silicon Valley and Delhi based company decided to reward its users for their loyalty, and offer some significant improvements to the older version.
With a much more interactive menu making it look a bit like Steam (it didn’t really use to have a menu at all, it used to be just like an emulator), BlueStacks 2 offers the ability to have multiple apps open in tabs, as well as downloading multiple apps while having the aforementioned tabs open.
Not only that, but the new app also offers a ‘Settings’ toolbar, allowing you to change options like the device’s location, the volume, and even screen shaking. A new Full Screen option also allows for more immersive gameplay.
Since its inception, the company managed to grow at an exponential rate, gathering over $30 million in funding from various companies like Samsung and Intel.
Being used by over 100 million people throughout the whole world, the App Player proved to be a huge success, with the average user spending 89 minutes during their first day playing games via BlueStacks.
Some of the more popular apps have already begun implementing features specifically for the App Player, and the company behind it promises more content, as well as more additions to the Bluestack brand.
