If you want to install and use the TextNow: Call + Text Unlimited 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 TextNow: Call + Text Unlimited in the search bar and press Search. Click on TextNow: Call + Text Unlimited application icon. A window of TextNow: Call + Text Unlimited 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

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes
Download Android

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Great Texting App -Poor Call App

    By J.L. Farnsworth
    My whole family uses Text Now, including our adult daughter no longer at home. We all live in tiny towns with no cell coverage. No cell coverage means no phone service at our homes. No cell service at our homes means no text messages - Especially pix or large messages! As an adult, it’s usually ok, unless said daughter only texts to let you know she made it home safely instead of calling the house line. Or, your clients like to send texts because they’re millennials. So, we have to go with the flow and do what the world does. Text now works with our internet AND our cell provider so we can use it anywhere. Barely anybody texts us on our cell number anymore. My only complaint is phone calls. They don’t come through as well as a phone call. It’s great for texting- but needs a lot of work on the phone call app still. I mean, it works, but it’s hard to hear. And it drops a lot. There’s a lot of interference and reverb. Sometimes I can hear all the people in the background, but not the person I’m actually talking to. There’s a lot of the, “can you hear me now?” Going on with this app. But, I have a feeling one day it will get there. But if that’s what it sounded like full time - I wouldn’t pay for their service. Some days, it’s not worth it and we don’t use it. So... there’s that. But aces for texting!
  • Thank you so much&Spam calls..

    By Rainbow223455564466
    My best friend lives two hours away and has a iPhone but no SIM card so she couldn’t text me, until of course, TextNow. I only dreamed of being able to text my best friend when I pleased, and not being only able to do it once a month, because she could only text me on her dads phone. But now I can talk to her all the time, and it’s awesome. Thank you so so so so much, I finally get my dreams come true, thank you text now. Thank you so much:) -Long distance bff Update: As I have been reading reviews, I found lots and LOTS of people have been getting spam calls. Now this is terrifying to me. So far nothing’s happened, but I am nervous. Also I’m noticing bad customer service, they don’t respond to any weird spam calling reviews and the ones they do reply to they just say “Sorry, please email us.” Like really. Just kinda worried. Dropped one star. Also once they said “Report that to ITunes” first of all Apple is very very very popular and it’s probably not likely at all that Apple will be able to respond. 2nd of all they probably won’t be able to fix my issue with 2394 other people complaining. So that’s weird. PLEASE BETTER CUSTOMER SERVICE, SO I DONT NEED TO FEAR, bye now.
  • It’s not the best...

    By Smilessmcdecinburger
    This app is great. Especially for me because I have an iPad, which means I cannot text phones from Samsung etc. This app is good because I could text my friends with phones from other providers. But, I faced many issues such as sometimes I would click on the app and it would shut me out and I would be back on the home screen after being in the app for about 3 seconds. I do get a lot of spam calls and a lot of people I don’t know txt me. It is really glitchy and sometimes I send messages and the person I am texting did not receive it. Another thing I didn’t like was I didn’t receive notifications most of the time when people texted me. One day I went on the app and all but the contact names went black. It shut me out of the app and I was back at the home screen. I tried many times getting back on the app, but it never worked. Then I got back on about a couple months later and I was logged out of my account! I can’t get back on and I don’t know what to do!! All of my text messages with my friends and family are gone. I would not recommend this app... it has just brought me so much anger and unless they fixed something with a magical update I don’t know if it’s going to be any good because I WAS LOGGED OUT OF MY ACCOUNT AND CAN’T CHECK FOR YOU. Hope this helped.
  • This used to be my favorite texting app...

    By Join Walkers btw!
    I’ve been a TextNow user for many years, ever since 2011, and haven’t run into so much trouble until recently when their ads just became unbearable. I believe in ads and have even tried buying their service several times. However, the ads are ruining the experience. Whenever I enter the app and tap on a contact and begin to type a message the app just freezes. I sometimes end up calling my boss on accident due to the horrible lag. The actual texting and calling is good otherwise. The texting is far better than the calling at times. I have unlimited data, but this apps can go from working great to not working at all in seconds. I can see that it’s the ads causing all the issues. My fix would be to have ads take up less data or use less ads or use a better way to get these ads on the app. Please fix this devs. It gets very confusing and frustrating when I can’t use the app due to all the ads. I will try to get a plan to remove the ads, but the normal service is advertised as free. I do hope you can fix the interface to run smoothly once again. I will return to the app when it gets better.

  • Keeps crashing.....

    By wifi gamer
    This app would be great if it didn’t crash so much. Every time you try to text someone it starts crashing. It seems to happen when the ads start showing or when you open the app. Needs a major fix quick!!

    By wreugk
    It used to work fine about a month ago, but lately it just lags and shuts off completely 🚮 I can't even call anymore, no texting, nothing at all. I have to rate you a 2 if I can give a zero I would but since this is recent I won't 😐

    By Tyeeeeb
    I started using this app a lot but now my calls are getting dropped. My messages are not going through. The service is terrible. I can never make a good call and I feel like I’m always wondering if my text messages even went through. whatever bug this app has.... you guys need to fix it.
  • Great app

    By L Cucch
    Great app, would be 5 stars but a lot of the time call quality is poor. Great for texting when there is no signal though
  • Not receiving texts

    By BruthaBlaq
    I have premium and I can’t send or receive texts. It’s so annoying.
