BlueStacks Inc. has finally released the latest version of BlueStacks called BlueStacks 3. BlueStacks successfully takes over the BlueStacks 2. The new emulator contains many extras running on a brand new user interface. With BlueStacks 3, users can run multiple applications simultaneously. The new app player is much smoother, it’s already preinstalled in the Google Play Store, and it’s now easier to access everything on your virtual Android device.
The user interface of BlueStacks 3 is not as confusing as before. After setting up the emulator you will find a welcome screen with 4 tabs. The tabs have My Apps, App Center, and the Support section. The My Apps tab displays the applications you have installed in the BlueStacks. It also shows you the pre-installed system applications of BlueStacks. App Center shows you the BlueStacks recommended applications. Of course, you do not need to know anything about the Support tab.
Below a, re options like Multi-Instance, Google Play, APK to install and uninstall the application. I personally liked the new BlueStacks 3.
The multi-instance feature is just cool. It simply pops up a new BlueStacks window where you can either clone your Google / BlueStacks account or sign in with a new BlueStacks account. This allows users to run multiple BlueStacks simultaneously to manage different applications under different accounts. The multi-instance feature is useful for all good reasons.
Google Play Store is at the bottom. Now you can access it instantly and look for an application. You can either APK files by double-clicking the data stored on your computer APK files or by clicking on the button to install APK in the Play Store, and then selecting the APK file to install.
In the top menu bar, you will find the profile icon that contains all your account information. This is the account you used to set up BlueStacks for Google Apps. Next to the account icon is the BlueStacks Friends menu, which will be coming soon. You can find an option to your BlueStacks app player 3 to accelerate, by clicking on the icon next to the BlueStacks friends.
Once you open a game or application in BlueStacks, the footer displays a taskbar with the keyboard option. Now you can assign the keyboard to your liking. This gives you the freedom to create your own controls for a game.
BlueStacks 3 has made it much easier for users to run Android games and applications on their PC. The earlier versions of BlueStacks were not that easy to handle and operate. BlueStacks 3 will definitely set new standards for Android emulators.
