The software has been specially designed to be able to run the popular Android games like PUBG or Asphalt on a larger screen device.
Nox App Player is a free Android emulator that allows you to run Android apps on your desktop computer. It is based on the Android operating system version 5.1.1 and is fully compatible to work with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8.x and 10. It works on both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of Windows. For the Apple Mac computers, it supports Mac Sierra only.
After the installation, you can launch Nox App Player and start side-loading various games using their APK files.
