How to Install and use BBM on PC

Below I have given two methods to download and install BBM on PC. Follow the easiest on for you.’

  • How to Install BBM on PC using Bluestack
  • How to Install BBM on PC using Genymotion.
Before you proceed with the installation, let me take you through the advantages and disadvantages of using these emulators.
 
To Begin Bluestacks, it is one of the most popular Android emulators, and that is the fact. However, that fact cannot change another fact that Bluestacks is a resource hog and most of the time you will see a performance issue while using the emulator. 
 
Coming to the advantage of Bluestacks, it doesn’t require any virtual machine to be installed to run on any computer. It’s like plug and play.
 
Coming to the advantages of Genymotion, it is the second popular Android emulator and known for the Android apps compatibility and smoother functionality of the apps.
 
The disadvantage here, however, is that it requires you to install a virtual machine and later run it on it. And that is not as easy as plug and play.
There are other Bluestacks alternatives, and I have made the list of best Android emulators for PC. Do check it out and let us know your favorite one among them.
