Download and install Snapchat on your Laptop or Desktop computer

If you want to install and use the Snapchat 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 Snapchat in the search bar and press Search. Click on Snapchatapplication icon. A window of Snapchat 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 Snapchat 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

  • Love the app. Simple suggestion for an update

    by Devan and John
    I’ve used this app for a long time and it really has worked well for me for multiple reasons. Such as personal stuff, and overall as a way to communicate to my friends. It’s a good app with plenty of improvement for it in the future. However there’s some flaws. It feels like the app uses way too much power. It feels like my battery gets drained just from the app being a simple texting/camera app. I’d recommend maybe some tuning to the usage of power for the app. I didn’t see any setting for battery saving, but I would recommend something to that extent so it doesn’t feel like my battery dies so fast using the app. And now my suggestion for an update. I’d would like to maybe see a feature that allows you to see what snap you sent to a person when you can’t remember what you said or sent to them. I’ve found myself forgetting what I sent or said to someone and I hate having to ask the person what I said, and then it doesn’t help when they can’t remember either. So a useful idea I would like to maybe see, would be a sneak peek of what you recently sent to a person so you can remember what you said or sent, instead of asking and neither of you remembering. But other than that, I think this app has potential and I love using it. 4 stars
  • A New Update that Caused a Virus on my Phone

    by The Exclusive 1
    As of August 20,2019 Snapchat had a another update and I thought maybe it would make a few improvements. Turns out I was wrong because that day on Wednesday morning I woke up and opened up my Snapchat to church my 66 total streaks that I had. When I got on Snap I had saw 2 of my streaks were dead than snap crashed. I opened snap up repeatedly but it kept crashing. So than I restarted the app, my phone, and deleted unnecessary apps from my phone but nothing had changed anytime I opened my phone. I even took the liberty to delete the app and re-download it but the result was the same when I logged in to the app it kept crashing. I went to my phone provider Network store to see if I was doing something wrong preventing me to get on snap but the store associate told me the app may have put a virus or a bug on my phone 😡. I have used SC for 3 years and this situation has never occurred on my phone but now it has came to a point that Snapchat gives horrible updates. All of the old features was decent and it was fun but it will be great if they keep some of the new features that they added a while back and bring back the old features which would make Snapchat way better but I guess. The only thing that I know is I can not open Snapchat without it crashing over and over ever since the last update. No other apps on my phone acts like this besides Snapchat 🤷🏽‍♂️
  • Needs a Bug Fix!

    by Hello from da uther siiidee
    So, I love Snapchat. It’s my most used app and it’s my first way of trying to get ahold of someone. There have been some issues though. Most of the time, it will show me snaps and chats and videos that I’ve already opened multiple times. It’ll say “Tap to Load” the second or third time around, and once I tap it the snap, video, or chat goes away. It’s super annoying. Also, I have to wait on everything to load. I don’t know if this is an issue with my phone or what, but I don’t know how to fix it. It’s not that my wifi connection isn’t strong, because my friend can just swipe right over to her messages, but I can’t. I have to wait for my Bitmoji or my Story loads and pops up in its spot. If I don’t wait, then all of my old messages and stuff come back. They still do it even if I’ve already replied to them once. Another issue I just encountered was it not showing up. I received a text last night, but I didn’t open it. When I woke up this morning, I go to check it, and there’s no message there. There isn’t even the saved chats. It does that sometimes too, it deletes our saved chats. Anyway, when I go to the person who texted me, it just says “Received 7 hours ago” even though I never opened the message. I tried to contact Snapchat Help on the app, but the profile was nowhere to be found. So, I deleted the app and I’m re-installing it now. Thank you for reading!
  • Ngl it’s a good app but...

    by panda9075323
    I’ve had this app for maybe two years, almost three, and I’ve never had any issue with it. I always loved the app, it was fun, and a great app to use to pass time, but obviously there have been many changes throughout the years with this app. For example, the thick black outline that’s around the logo... it just doesn’t look that appealing like it used to be. I deleted the app some time ago but decided to reinstall it because I wanted to have the app back. When I saw the new logo I thought it was a knock off of the original app. I was utterly confused, but then came to realize it was the actual app. I was disappointed because when you change things about an app it’s obviously suppose to improve its previous difficulties and help make more people be interested in the app itself, and I was not. Not only was it the logo but other things about the app that you “fixed” were just annoying and unnecessary in my opinion. On a good note though, it is a fun app to use while texting and sending photos to friends. It’s also great if you want to share your moments with your friends just by taking a couple seconds out of your day. Finally, it’s also one of my favorite apps to use to pass some time.
  • glitching

    by l4ru3
    ive used snap for about 4 years maybe 5 years now and over the years and more updates i’ve had this lagging problem which didn’t bother me at all because it was only for about a second then it grew worse n i would constantly check to see if my cache was too full or something so i would empty it and it would tell me it’s going to restart the app n close it out. i hit ok and i would swipe the app from my background as well so it’s nice and fresh now. when i go back into it nothing changed. same thing kept happening. but starting just about a week or two ago now, the app has been constantly kicking me out or blacking out first then kicking / glitching me out. at this point i’m very annoyed because i have deleted the app up to 6 six times and now cant even use this simple app how i used to, to answer snaps or just take nice pictures. i can’t even be in the app for more than maybe 5-25 seconds without the app kicking me back to my own home screen. it’s extremely frustrating at this point. i don’t know if it’s just me or not. i’ve asked around and some are saying it’s not happening to them and others are saying it is just not this bad. but whatever is going on SNAPCHAT FIX IT BECAUSE IM REALLY READY TO GIVE UP ON THIS APP! for real. by the way, the new ghost logo wasn’t expected one day after practice. it looks weird. please remove that and add that to the “things to fix list” .
  • Love snap, but needs people to answer to our problems with it

    by OkiItsMe!
    Ever since August 25, 2019, I have been having trouble with my account. I was locked out of it for no reason. I have never violated any of Snapchat’s rules. I’ve been trying to log in for the past four days but nothings working. And it’s irritating because I’ve submitted multiple tickets and sent multiple tweets and it’s all robots not people so they don’t care to fix what’s wrong or to listen. They just tell you the same thing over and over with an automatic response based on key words used in your tweet. They won’t unlock my account, so I lost all of my streaks for something that I didn’t do and I wasn’t even notified about my account getting locked. And a little bit ago today, I logged into Snapchat on a different device to see if it would work, and it did! But I still can’t log in on my cell phone. This isn’t even happening to just me either. Lots of people are reporting it, but Snapchat isn’t doing anything to help. I love Snapchat. I use it to take pictures and save them to memories. I use it to talk to people. I use it for everything. I need it. But if you don’t figure this out, I won’t wanna use it anymore because I don’t want to deal with this. I have wayyy too many memories that I don’t want to lose. I already lost my streaks. Please fix this Snapchat.
  • great app but needs some work

    by Aannnaaammmooouuusss
    I just purchased the new iPhone XR and was so disappointed the moment I entered into Snapchat. When I went to use the front facing camera, I noticed the quality is not what it used to be on my old phone, it was really fuzzy and zoomed in and then when I actually went to take a picture it immediately zoomed in even further and turned it even more blurry. So much worse than what videos on Androids look like. Thinking it was something with my phones camera I went into my camera app and was surprised to see the crystal clear picture on both my front and and rear facing camera. Updated my phone and tried again. Nothing changed. Looked online to see if there was anyone else in a similar situation and found a multitude of other users just as frustrated as I was. Waited for a couple weeks and installed numerous updates hoping they would fix this issue. Was disappointed each time. I loved using Snapchat before this happened, it really boosted my self confidence to be able to quickly snap cute, attractive pictures of myself and what I was up to to my friends. Now I can’t even get on the app because it turns my otherwise decently looking face to a blurry zoomed in mess. Please fix this Snapchat I would love to be able to use the app again!
  • Small suggestion

    by UnbuiltFungus10
    I can say confidently that me and all of my friends spend just about all of our time on Snapchat. It has brought many people I know together in ways I’ve never seen capable by another app. By far snapchat is my favorite and most used app. It is easy to use and has a smooth and appealing layout. I am not here to criticize, but simply to make a suggestion. I enjoy watching some of the shows on the “For you” tab. But I often find myself losing the show that I was just watching. I’ve noticed that thumbnails change after you go through the story, so that makes it hard to find what you clicked on in the first place. In particular I keep finding myself thinking “wow, I enjoyed that show, but I don’t remember what channel it was under. Though I only watched it 5 minutes ago.” Thus I would propose a sort of “history” feature for the “for you” page. (I would not like this for personal stories, only shows on the for you tab.) Possibly even just keep it in a more hidden spot because I do not need it as often as other things on Snapchat. But a feature like this would help me find and subscribe to the shows I enjoy. Thank you for reading.
  • Just a few bugs

    I love Snapchat it’s pretty much the only app I use and I use it all the time everyday but since the update there has been a few bugs 1. It’s like not counting that I watched stories? Like I watch them but instead of going to the back of the line saying that I watched them and then just kinda disappearing when I text them cause I’ve already watched their story it doesn’t do that and like thinks I’ve watched the story already so like she I got to the story page the same people at in the front of the line and I keep thinking they posted something new but they didn’t it’s just their entire story again and Snapchat like doesn’t think I’ve watched it already and it won’t go away 2. When you text people in the chat it like glitches kind of and the keyboard like cover almost the whole screen so you can’t see what they said and you also can’t see what you’re typing like the keyboard just pops up larger and covers the whole thing and you have to swipe in and out of the chat multiple times go get the keyboard to be normal. Those are the only things I really notice right now that are kind of bugging me and a little annoying but otherwise I love Snapchat keep up the good work!!
  • if it could just load faster than everything would be fine

    by raya4456
    OK I love Snapchat so much are use it every single day I use it for everything to text my friends call my friends post on my story let people know what I’m doing and I love it so much but, if it were just faster!!!Lately it has been lagging and axing me out of the tab and doing really crazy stuff lately at this point it’s getting very annoying and I wish you would just stop the most recent iOS update on Snapchat was just three days ago this is becoming absolutely absurd if they’re having updates within three days and it still continuing to be bad and having really bad bugs and saying that they’re fixing them is not correct, they actually need to fix the bugs and fix the lagging and fix all the terrible loading and axing out of the tabs and all the really crappy things and Snapchat will be perfect this is just my opinion but many other people are experiencing this to it has just been recently so it’s good that hasn’t been really really bad but lately it has been very bad many people running or changing the same thing so I know it’s not just me on my phone so let me know if you’re exchanging the same thing to!
