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 Snapchat application 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 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

  • Snapchat Needs improvement

    By Ktiger101
    I was really impressed with Snapchat back in the day, in that it enabled photo messaging and added filters to help with those of us who may have a bad skin day, keep our blemishes hidden by a smoother so when we send our friends a snap it doesn’t show our embarrassing acne spot to our possible crush, etc. The new updates to Snapchat are disastrous. First; I can not clear an entire conversation column and have to go one by one through the messages to clear them. Also you can’t look up your friends; how is anyone supposed to organize their friends list if we can’t even see who’s our friend without searching them? If you have 20 or so friends you are basically spending 2 minutes of your time trying to clear your snap window. Second; the stories; filled with biased propaganda and absolute garbage. I enjoy subscribing to some of the channels but the fact that most of these channels feature some of the most controversial topics and are completely one sided is unfortunate. I would like to see more middle liner content, and keep politics out of the playground unless your going to equalize and allow those who may not swing to the left side of the scale, be able to enjoy the features as well. Please read and consider Snapchat
  • 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!
  • Chat interface is way too cluttered

    By TehPers
    The chat textbox is way too short. There are five icons on that row, and only three are intuitive (camera, microphone, and smiley face). One icon is two rectangles overlapping each other (select photos), and one's a rocket ship. Yes, a rocket ship. How often am I going to be asking my friend to play a Snapchat game with me? Probably never, so why make the textbox smaller just for that meaningless icon? Instead of cluttering the chat textbox row and making the textbox a 1 inch wide oval, it would be nice if this mess of icons could be collapsed into a single menu to allow the chat textbox to take up most of the width of the screen so I can see what I'm typing. For reference, Discord's chat textbox takes up most of the width of the screen, and there are only three buttons there (attachment, emoji, send). Slack moves all those extra icons onto the next row so the chat textbox can be the full width of the screen minus one icon. Snapchat could do something similar to Discord and limit the chat textbox's row to having the diction button, emoji/bitmoji/etc, and photo (which would include camera, camera roll, and memories). The games button could be moved to the top of the screen next to the other infrequently used buttons.
  • Great app but the group chats are sometimes nerve racking....

    By Lil dipy
    I love the app, it’s good for communicating with fiends, weather it be through a chat or a snap with funny filters or a group chat! The group chats are amazing, no doubt about it, it’s helpful and it’s got a lot of interactivity, but one thing that could be helpful for a lot of people, is the option to mute a group chat without having to get on the app or on settings. What I mean with this is that sometimes people are busy on their phones or have something important and can’t get off what they’re doing to mute a group chat or go to settings. So....if you could implement an option where we could slide down on the notification of a group chat and mute it without having to get off what we’re doing at the moment, and whenever we get on the app to check the messages, the option of muting could disable automatically, or just have the option to mute it for a certain amount of time, but over all, the app is good, I love it and it’s fun! 😊🙂
