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

Step 4: Minecraft for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Minecraft 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

$6.99 On iTunes

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

  • Love the game but there is a problem and update Minecraft please read

    By freindly owl
    Please add mods for iPad I will appreciate that a that I will play Minecraft forever I love this game a lot. Add like a place where people can put ears on like animal ears the look realistic and Minecraft like ears and tails. Add a place where people can change their size also change the legs make it work for severs and the games of people don’t add special effects of the character and people can save it. Keep up the amazing and awesome work you can make it today days, weeks, months, years seconds, minutes, milliseconds or nanoseconds I don’t even care how long it takes. The problem is when I make my Minecraft game most of the Water don’t flow and I don’t like it a lot thanks happy holidays :D . Love the game forgot to say add more plants to Minecraft like poison ivy and poison oak for land now time for under water. Moss balls and duck weed make fresh water plants die in the ocean. Make salt water plants die in fresh water then make a water bucket a new one like ocean water and lake water thanks if you do this all or a little. Even add more mobs and aquatic animals add a shark and other animals form lakes and the ocean a whale. My favorite type of shrimp is ghost shrimp please add that type of shrimp there not for eating you can make the player eat it it’s your game right. Make the animals eat to survive love you see your game now I will play it today at a server I hope you can see me there.
  • Amazing- here's why

    By Corgi1982
    I love this game, it is my favorite in the whole world. The reason why is because if you have any idea- here is a place that you can make it. I have made castles that takes minutes just to get from one side to the other (they are really big) and I have made houses that have twenty levels. I have made cross country skiing courses, that are huge! Mushroom tree houses, islands of chickens, underwater mine cart, you name it! Any out of the box idea is capable of being done, and no idea is to small or big. My friends and I all have Minecraft, and we support each other in our ideas and help with them too. It has made our friendship stronger the past few years, and will continue to. We can all play on it together, and it still remains with no glitches. Another thing, most people like the building and mining part of Minecraft, but the graphics are beautiful. The under the water scenes with the dolphins and coral to the canyons with the red, white, yellow, and brown clay. The lakes and the jungles. Even the swamps are pretty! It also has real work situations, like hunger and how you need to find a place to sleep at night. It has helped me get a head start in science, when we went through the minerals section o knew what had ores and how to reduce it down to its values and I knew which minerals you would see first when diving straight down. Thank you to the creators of Minecraft, for making such a wonderful game.
  • Suggestions, Suggestions, Suggestions!

    By Keagan.TL4L
    Hi, This game is fantastic but a few things.. Where are the turtles? I can’t find them! Please add a turtle spawn egg. I’d appreciate it very much. And some suggestions - Please add so the animals are more realistic and you need to feed them to keep them alive, Please add mud, They could be crafted with dirt and a water bucket, You get 6 mud blocks for each. Or you can just pour a bucket of water over a patch of dirt. Once the mud is placed if there are pigs nearby they will be attracted to the mud and do a rolling animation. Can you make it so there is a nest item? You can craft it by using sticks in an upside down helmet shape. If you breed 2 chickens and a nest is nearby, The chicken will go to the nest and sit in it, They will lay an egg in the nest, Also can you make the egg hatch on its own if you leave it? They would take 10 to 15 minutes to hatch. Make a food trough. You can store animal food in the trough and the appropriate animal will come and eat it when hungry. Also, Can you make more types of dogs? Such as the Desert dog, They spawn in desert and have a body the color of sand, They also have a cactus tail. Also, can you add more types of cats? Like a black cat, It would be like the tuxedo cat but be all black and yellow eyes. Thanks for reading this, I hope you listen to my suggestions. If you do, Then thank you! If you listen to these ideas you could call it “The Farm Update”.
  • Love it!…But

    By Critterlover2.0
    I love Minecraft, it is a great multiplayer game and I think it has really come a long way since the beginning. I have been playing Minecraft since the release of the first game, and it has just gotten better and better. But this game could use some improvements especially for mobile users. I feel like the computer users of Minecraft get updates quicker. For instance I have seen people on computers that have the full aquatic update , while I’m on an iPad and I am only now getting news of this update plus it is coming so slowly. Another problem I have with this game is the in-app purchases I mean I know they have added coins but you still have to buy those coins with your real life money. I wish that they had a way that you could somehow earn the coins in game by playing and achieving certain goals. I also think this game needs more mobs they have all these biomes but so little animals they should have different animals and mobs for each biome. Just one idea for the game I had too was Eskimos can be like the villagers of the snow biomes. Finally, another issue I have is the LAG if I have a certain amount of worlds the game lags like crazy to where I can’t play the game. I hope you consider these problems and think about ways to fix them and please get the updates to users at the same time. I have been a Minecraft user for many years and I would like to see the game be improved.
