Does Windows 11 have an Emulator? (Everything Explained)

As Microsoft announced that Windows 11 support the Android Apps & after that announcement, one typical question appears in people’s mind that whether there is an emulator in Windows 11 or not?

If you are seeking this question’s answer, then you are at the right place. Here I have provided your question’s answer.

So, Does Windows 11 have an Emulator?

Yes! the Windows 11 operating system has the built-in Emulator, and it supports the android apps via Amazon App Store. Microsoft introduces this latest feature by using the intel-bridge technology & as a user, you can use different external emulators to run any specific android application and games. 

I have already provided the answer to whether Windows 11 has the Emulator or not? 

In the below section, I have mentioned some other significant factors regarding Windows 11 Emulator, so stick to the end of this article.

Which Emulator is Best for Windows 11?

You can run several android applications in Windows 11 without using any Emulator, but to run heavy games and some android applications, Emulator is very much mandated. 

So, now the question is which Emulator is the best for windows 11?

According to my research and expert’s recommendation, the Bluestacks 5 is the best Emulator for Windows 11 users.

The Bluestacks 5 gives users the ability to access different apps and games from Google Playstore to your Windows 11 system.

In concise, the Bluestacks 5 is an Android Emulator that works on Windows-based computers & it allows you to emulate the Android operating system on your Windows 11 based laptop or PC & no phones or tablets are required for this.

After understanding the Bluestacks 5, you might wonder why this Bluestacks 5 is good for Windows 11?

I have researched this, and I have discovered some primary reasons & based on these reasons, we can say that Bluestacks 5 is the perfect choice for Windows 11 users. Here are the reasons-

  • The Bluestacks 5 is the latest version which was published in 2021 & it is better than its previous version Bluestacks 4.
  • The Bluestacks 5 offers a faster boot compared to the BS4.
  • Within Bluestacks 5, the installation process of apps & games is significantly quicker.

For these reasons, the Bluestacks 5 is considered a suitable choice for Windows 11 users. 

Windows 11 Emulator vs BlueStacks 5

As everyone knows that Windows 11 will support Android Apps and on the other hand there is no doubt that BlueStacks 5 is the best Emulator for Windows 11; now the question is, Which one should you use?

If you are confused, then this section will clear your confusion.

I have installed some games in Windows 11 inbuilt Emulator and Bluestacks 5, and after getting the results, I become shocked-

Initially, I installed a medium-weight game Stricker Zone in Windows 11, and when I ran this game on Windows 11, I was constantly getting 60 fps without any lag, and the gameplay was very smooth.

After that, I ran this same game in BlueStacks 5, and my gaming experience was not that good because my mouse was sticking in some cases.

This experiment taught me that the small games didn’t run well in Bluestacks 5. For more minor games, the Windows 11 inbuilt emulator is good because Windows 11 optimize all the gaming settings for you, including mouse & keyboard settings.

But for broader games like PUBG, you have to use the BlueStacks 5 because these broader games are not supported for Windows 11. In this case, you need to use the external emulator, and you have to do the critical binding by yourself.

So, based on the experiments, it can be said that for the smaller games and productivity-based applications (WhatsApp, adobe scan, Instagram, Netflix), Windows 11 is good & there is no need for external emulators.

While on the other hand, for broader games like FreeFire, PubG external emulators (BlueStacks 5) is the most suitable choice.

How to Use an Emulator in Windows 11? (Bluestacks)

As a beginner Windows 11 user, you might be wondering how to use an Emulator in Windows 11? I have explained all the steps to use the Bluestacks 5 in Windows 11.

Step 1:

In the first step, go to google and type Bluestacks & the first link that appears in front of you is bluestacks.com; just click on that website link.

Step 2:

After visiting the official websites of BlueStacks, you will get a download Bluestacks button in green; click on that button.

After doing this, you might notice that the Bluestacks exe file will be started to be installed in your Windows 11 operating system.

Step 3:

After that, click on the exe files you have downloaded and next press the yes button. The blue stacks installer will start & once it starts, then click on the blue install now button.

After doing so, some Bluestacks packages will automatically start to download, and you don’t have to do anything at this point.

Step 4:

After finishing the installation, the Bluestacks will automatically open in front of you. Here you will get various android applications, including the play store app, and from this play store, you can install any android games and applications, but before this, you need to sign in with your Gmail account.

Besides play store here, you will get other apps like- game centre, system apps (chrome, files, settings, camera), Bluestacks X (Play Android games Instantly).

This is how you can use the Bluestacks emulator in Windows 11 operating system by following these steps.

Final Thought

Based on all the information it can be said that within Windows 11 you can run android games and applications without any emulator, but at the same time you can also use the external emulator (like Bluestacks) to boost your experience.

For the gaming factors, it can be said that for the smaller games & productivity-based applications (WhatsApp, Instagram, Netflix) you can use Windows 11, but for broader games, you have to use the external emulators & Bluestacks 5 is the best for your choice.
