If you want to install and use the Lyft Driver app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Lyft Driver in the search bar and press Search. Click on Lyft Driver application icon. A window of Lyft Driver on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Committed To Lyft

    By Becaj68
    After reviewing all the comments, and also being a Lyft driver. I will say one thing Lyft is doing their best to get rid of all the glitches. Bye-bye far most I would never be an Uber driver. Lyft gives perks and awesome incentives. Lyft does their best to accommodate the drivers. unfortunately when all the calls come in at a prime time, it’s very hard for the Network to sub stain so many calls. Not making excuses, just keeping it really. That should be a of letting us as drivers know that the customers are demanding Lyft over Uber and are waiting for rides. That means we’re doing something right. As drivers we need to notify Lyft of the errors and the glitches in the app, in order for them to be resolved. We can’t fix glitches and/or resolve problems, if we don’t communicate with Lyft. I have encountered numerous of glitches and yes it is very frustrating, however I am a committed Lyft driver and I will call Lyft and let them know of every glitch I encounter for them to be resolved. I do this part time and full time... Edit time is the most enjoyable part of my day while I drive is the conversations and the laughter is that I encounter with the customers. So let’s stop beating up LYFT and start helping them. Be that dedicated driver to our customers.
  • 5 star company, 1 star UNSAFE app 👎🏼🚫

    By JoshObermeyer
    I usually drive in the evenings and night time. There are a few features I love about the app, but by the end of the night I am frustrated with my eyes hurting because of the extremely bright UI that has absolutely no option for a dark mode or night time mode. I turn my brightness down, but then when I switch to Uber while using their amazing dark mode, the brightness is way too dark and I have to keep adjusting the brightness back and forth. Such a hassle, and extremely dangerous while driving. The app should offer the safest possible UI for day AND night driving. The app also has glitched many, many times when trying to accept rides once they pop up, which has resulted in missing some all together. Whenever I zoom out on the map to see the city view, and then click to relocate my exact position, the app no longer follows my location in live time and keeps me distracted while driving as I have to constantly click to find my location again to see where I am going. Navigation is absolutely horrendous as it doesn’t give you turn-by-turn or street names/distances as you are coming up on your next exit or turn. Overall, the app requires WAY too much user interaction, and in return is entirely DANGEROUS to drive with. I spend more time dealing with the app than I do being able to watch the road. 👎🏼🚫
  • Utter slavery

    By One Rainbow Light
    Lyft has decided to become a corporate monster that makes Uber look like a benevolent angel. The way they have designed earnings to usurp every available and imaginable upside is ghastly and indicative of their desire to create a network of indentured servant A.I. driver-robots out of people who were previously human beings. If you want your buttocks to literally melt off your bones while attempting to achieve Lyft's dangling carrots of ever-fleeting bonuses, sign up today. If, instead, you choose to be intelligent in lieu of allowing this company to use you to accomplish its evil objectives and profit motives, you'll simply get a minimum wage job as a barista. Do not fall for this. You might have enough energy to make a killing for a week or even several months, but in the end, you WILL fall prey to their Draconian design patterns and fake pink "I give a F" when they completely, completely do not. You have been warned. Do not drive for Lyft and take the bus as much as humanly possible. Again, they make Uber look like Mother Theresa despite Lyft's once-humble roots. This is a morally reprehensible company filled with people executing a crime against humanity, just with a new, tech-centric spin to it and a little bit of tell-you-what-you-want-to-hear marketing fluff. Good riddance, Lyft. Never again will I sit in the electric chair of my own vehicle to suffer at the helm of your stupid application. You can truly eat my hole.
  • Too many glitches

    By abroham018
    I’ve been noticing the Lyft Driver app have various glitches over the past week. Sometimes whenever I get a request and I click to accept, the app freezes with the request tone still playing in the background. When I force quit the app and open it back up, I end up loosing the ride even though I clicked to accept it. Also, I use Google Maps integrated with the Lyft app to use as my navigation, when I’m on my way to pick up a rider the navigation sometimes doesn’t know my current location so than it begins to reroute me to a road I’m not on and confuses me on getting to the rider, this also happens during a ride, the navigation just gets lost and does not know where I am, I get rerouted and sometimes it affects my ratings due to poor navigation. Finally, just recently a rider admitted to taking advantage of a glitch the app has been having for the longest. The rider said during Prime Time the rider force quits and reinstalls the Lyft rider app to avoid having to pay the Prime Time percentage, the rider noted that this method has to be done multiple times, most of those times doesn’t work but it’s definitely an issue because if a rider isn’t paying the Prime Time price than the driver wouldn’t be receiving either. Please take this feedback considerably, thank you. Happy Lyfting!

  • Glitching

    By Kaheapua
    It seems like every time the update the Lyft app it glitches morn more I have had no problems with rides but this last week since they updated I have had half the rides than I normally do, and I’ve made half the money that I usually do and especially this time of season it doesn’t matter because I’m not getting pings, I will wait an hour and a half to two hours before I get a ride and it just doesn’t seem right so whatever they did to update the app with the algorithm it’s really screwing a lot of us drivers over.Then they ask you to write them on their app and I put A1 on the app it’s just ridiculous usually I give them a three when it’s a little bit slow because the rides aren’t what they should be. But since they’ve updated the app it just seems like the rides are getting fewer and fewer so I don’t know what’s going on with the lyft app. And also the map that Lyft uses is glitching really bad it’s repeating itself at stops it’s freezing up and I’m having to restart my phone and I have a brand new iPhone X I’ve only had two months so I know that it’s not my phone.
  • Night time mode

    By Saerec
    Been using the driver app for a while now, and so far no complains about. Works fine on my iPhone 8 Plus, IOS 12. That being said, it would really be nice to have nighttime driver mode being a setting on this app. I mean all the other gps apps have it available, and the dark background makes it a lot easier on the eyes when driving at night. Would it be possible to implement this system in the Lyft app? While I prefer using the Lyft app for daytime driving, when it comes to nighttime, I usually shift to google maps or Waze due to the nighttime mode on those apps. If the Lyft driver app would get this implemented, I wouldn’t have to switch...
  • Amp

    By Winsoncai
    If the software can turn on or turn off the amp, when go online or offline, that should be better.
  • Overall pretty good

    By maggs808
    Easy to use; pretty straight forward. The thing I don’t like is the earnings is shown in larger font on home page for all to see.
  • Dark mode

    By mrcledmit
    The app looks great, the navigation is easy, intuitive to use. With that said, I truly hope that one day they will implement dark mode for when driving at night.
  • The app works fine

    By BirdCharger101
    But Lyft needs to work on either gaining more rides or something because it is awful. I’m tired of only getting rides that are the minimum. Thankfully I do both Uber and Lyft so it doesn’t affect me as much but it’s just awful the money made in Lyft. There are days I don’t even bother with Lyft just because how useless it is.
  • New policy isn’t driver friendly

    By N❤️H
    I like driving for lyft. I been doing it for the past few months. However, this new policy about animal is just bad. And it doesn’t care about the driver situation. “You're required by the law and Lyft's policy to accommodate service animals, even if you have an allergy, religious or cultural objections, or a fear of them.” Allergy is not a joke. What if someone can’t drive for the rest of the week, month, or even a year because he gets sick for giving just this one ride to a person with an animal? How can he/she provide for his/her family? Fear of animal isn’t a joke either. Personally I am scared of them. And driving on the road and having fear of the animal in my back set is dangerous for me, for the passenger, for the animal, and for other drivers. Accident can easily occur. So, I hope Lyft think about their new policy and make it driver friendly as well as the customer friendly too. They are lots of ways this can be done. Thank you.

    Please add a dark mode to the app...

    By Traniqua Williams
    Lyft Is Not Much A Understanding Company To Work With. They have people that will rate you unfairly and lyft will deactivate your account without talking to you and they don’t give anyone chances they are so quick to believe the very first thing that comes they way. I also had a ride 5 mins for $3 that’s not enough, they also assign people to the ride without letting you accept that person while you driving another person.
