Run Android apps on PC and Mac with Google’s ARC Welder

Run Android apps on PC and Mac with Google’s ARC Welder

If you don’t own an Android device but have wanted to sample the delights of its app store, you can now do so on a PC or Mac with Chrome installed. Previously available to just developers, Google has now released its ARC Welder software to the general public, allowing anybody to download and / or purchase apps through the use of Google’s own browser.

Admittedly, there are many other alternatives available already, but official support from the Android creators is no doubt a welcome move, as is the ease of access for those who use Chrome already. You can get started by heading over to the ARC Welder page on the Chrome Store. Happydundee for the heads-up!

That was possible before with an emulator....
BlueStacks comes to mind - no need for Chrome ;)

Nope... because I do not use Chrome. Ever.
Bluestacks works well (linked above)...
