If you want to install and use the TextNow 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 TextNow 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: TextNow 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 in the search bar and press Search. Click on TextNow application icon. A window of TextNow 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 TextNow icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: TextNow for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use TextNow 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 Andriod, Iphone

Free On iTunes

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

  • Works great but one weird issue....

    By ccbear17
    I love TextNow! I have used it for years and it has had its share of bugs and glitches but they always get updated and fixed in the end! I will continue to use the app but I have experienced a few “Call Interferences” that kind of freak me out when they happen. It’s only happened about 3 times and I cannot find anything online about anyone else who is experiencing this issue but basically what happens is - I’ll be on the phone with my boyfriend or someone else and everything is just fine but then all of the sudden the call gets really staticky and a separate voice from ours enters the call as if we just called them and their answering their phone! At first I thought my boyfriend was messing with me but I have had this experience while talking to other people as well! When I respond to the voice they can’t hear us but I know I’m not crazy because the person I am talking to hears it to. Please look into this.
  • One Star Garbage

    By PvtUsr007
    TextNow does absolutely none of what it advocates in its advertising as absolute for the call reception is poor even under the best of circumstances, i.e. excellent carrier/WiFi signals. In my case, the tools stopped working, there were no means to stop the screen from fading away once placing one’s hands or face near it, one couldn’t sign out of other locations/devices, and the app started actually cloning itself via my actual handheld device. If one uses a VPN, it will fight vigorously to break through the firewall so as to reveal your location. After further research into TextNow, users might want to use extreme caution before using this app as you might notice that many of your text communications, simply, disappear without a trace, especially those with pictures and/or attachments. You will notice, there’s no means to recover them or no genius at TextNow to contact for assistance. What I do not understand is the number of you dumb users who are complaining about this lame app, but choose to grade it at 3/4/5. I guess, if I understood stupid, so would I’d be. This app is worthless!
  • Needs some serious security work

    By Pewpewpew44
    Alright, I’ll start off by saying I have used this app now for over two years and it has worked for me with minimal flaws. For a few months now I have some connection issues with calls where the call will go through but the person on the other line can’t hear me and vice-versa. This issue has happened on more than one occasion. Just recently I had something happen which made my decision to stop using TextNow completely and get rid of my account. When I tried to call my local deli like I usually do, I got connected to someone speaking a completely different language with an angry wife or daughter saying something in the background I couldn’t understand. With the recent hack on Facebook, I would be cautious about using this texting app as they could possibly have a security breach. This is a completely abnormal situation that has occurred and I’m not even sure how it happened as the number worked on a local phone, however, I hope the developers find out the cause and solve the issue.
  • Using for over a year and no issues but.......

    By Evilmaria667
    I have been using TextNow for over a year and besides some crappy service at times, I can’t complain because it’s a free app BUT I have noticed when I get off a phone call, I’ll get an ad for something I was talking about. For example I talked to my mom about horrible things some bridesmaids have done to the bride before the wedding that resulted in them leaving the party or being booted and less than an hour later there’s an ad for bridesmaids dresses. I have also noticed when I exit a call there’s a line along the top of my screen that’s usually green if I’m not directly in the app and it turns red and states it’s recording. So I think I’m gonna stop being a cheapskate and get a phone plan with another carrier. Otherwise I really have zero complaints but recording or listening to my calls is a HUGE issue to me. May not be to others? Lol I don’t know.

  • Does the app even work?

    By Dulok
    I hardly ever try to use the app anymore due to the fact that I can't use it; I attempt to open up the app but all it does is kick me off. I've been trying to use it for the past two hours to no avail.

  • I like it

    By Padomad
    I like this app a lot but sometimes I will call one of my friends and it will hang up about five minutes later it happens more often of group calls. I also sometimes don’t get calls it will just say missed call and I will be looking at my phone the whole time. Please fix these issues.
  • Needs some work😬

    By Z E Jones
    This app works well because I don’t have a number so I can’t text any other phone beside iPhone. But some things need work. I text my friend on this app because she doesn’t have an iPhone. But when she tries to call me it doesn’t notify me until I have missed the call. And even if I try to answer it shows I answered it but there is no sound, I always have to be the one to call her. I also don’t like the fact that I can’t send videos, and I sometimes can’t see photos, for me to be able to see the photo that isn’t visible I have to tell my friend to restart their phone when I restart mine, then I can see the photo, and it gets annoying. To summarize this app needs some updates to bring it to my satisfaction.
