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

  • Lyfts Consideration to Getting Back to Customers on Issues

    By BurnMamaBurn
    I started using Lyft through my family. They referred me, and even though they never received referral fees, we still continue. At first rides would come as stated; example, if it said 2 minutes, they would come in 2 minute. Then as time went on, we start to find drivers stating a time, and some would come almost 10 minutes later. Imagine this, because remember that when you are waiting, the clocks ticks, and you must be there without delay, or its cancelled and you are charged. Ive had many drivers, and recent too, say they arrived, when they had not. Ive had drivers come with the cleanest cars, and lately with dirty exterior and interior. When riding the line, being patient, they will stop to get the other person, even though you are waiting, and then drop them first, landing me much later to my destination. Ive had drivers drive fast, almost going through lights, and looking at their phones while driving. Not acceptable. So, while many of this concerns may just be the way life is i guess, and mishaps i must be understanding to, and maybe I'm still even learning how this all works, my ability to reach Lyft immediately, or get a call back, or reply to my concerns, to me is a major concern, poor business, and pretty inconsiderate since I've been using the service consistently for months. Maybe a little consideration in trying to fix this please. Thanks so much.

    I’ve never used this kind of service before and I was a little leery, last night was my first time writing with them. They are incredible! I am legally blind so they were very helpful, kind, polite, friendly. They got me to where I was going and more, they even help me to the door and inside. This is a service that needs to continue to be used, especially by those with disabilities-visually impaired/blind. This is a very incredible, important, untapped resource that needs to continue to be used. It’s incredible and a lot of other people should be using this. Last night, I paid under $20 for around trip. It’s incredible, if you would try any other cab service they would charge you even more than that. Their rates are extremely fair and since they have projects going on you’re not wasting your money at all. It’s also very incredible and awesome that they’re also doing the round up, which is where the rounded up to the nearest dollar and the difference will go to a charity of your choice. You can even write it off as a tax deductible, most of them will tell you if they are or if they’re not. I’ll definitely continue to use their services, I’d also recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat.
  • Almost perfect

    By Jerricio
    If I could give four and a half stars I would. The only reason for a half star off of five is because how their scheduling works. I travel nearly every week for work and I really enjoy the convenience of Lyft to the airport (about a 35 mile ride). Since I am usually leaving the house around 3:30 am to 5:30 am I schedule my ride the night before. The problem is I never get a confirmation that a driver has accepted my route until about 10 to 15 minutes before they pick me up. Every driver has indicated that they accepted my route the night before, so why was I not notified then? I’m not looking for the specific drivers name or make of car, it would just be nice to know that a driver has accepted. Why this is important: Recently Atlanta had forecast of possible icy conditions around the time I would be leaving for the airport. But up until about 15 minutes before I was to leave I had no idea if any Lyft drives were actually working (which would be completely understandable given the weather situation). Had I been given a confirmation when the driver accepted, a lot of anxiety could have been avoided. Please update the app and procedures and I will be happy to give it five stars.
  • 50/50

    By Tiger K-The Krying King
    Lyft can be a fantastic experience or it can be a nightmare. A good portion of the time their drivers are fantastic. I use single rides mostly however their share rides, when I have time, I used to use. Not anymore. Be prepared to have the driver take you way out of the way before you get to your location. It’s s simple fix . The company mainframe algorithms should be programmed to pick up rides only going in your direction. I live in NYC. That wouldn’t be hard to do. Uber does this easily. Also, I’ve encountered hostile drivers and clueless drivers who have no idea where their going. I had a driver take me, on a single ride, to JFK and go from Williamsburg all around Queens the wrong way even after I told him the route to take . 50% of the time, Arrogant and clueless drivers. For some odd reason Uber has a better screening process for their driver and they are much better informed and trained drivers who don’t gave to rely on GPS alone to get you to your destination. Lyft should consider hiring seasoned ex-NYC Cabbies instead of Cats that have no experience. Would you hire a Plumber to do an Electrician job? No, you wouldn’t. I hope for Lyft sake they step up or I will cease to continue to use them. If they implement change , I’ll be happy to continue. And get a customer help line with live operators . Get with it !!!

    Great first experience
  • Unresponsive

    By Forza Motorports
    I’ve tried to use the app several times. I’ve managed to use it only a couple of times. Most of the times it freezes or is unresponsive. How are you supposed to depend on it if it does that? I am using an iPhone 7 and running the latest iOS as well as the latest app. No reason for it to be doing that. I was actually going to buy the 30 ride special that Lift offers but luckily I found out the app freezes before I bought it.
  • Price/rates

    By wergum
    Prices needs to beat uber prices
  • It’ll get you a ride. But there’s some issues.

    By Mel Mir
    My last couple of rides were too close. For instance, when I am to chose a ride, I pay very close attention to the ETA of both Uber and Lyft’s pickup and drop off times. Also the rate. Sometimes, Lyft states that they’d be faster. But that MAY NOT be the case. So when I agree to Lyft’s ETA and press the confirm button, the ETA changes dramatically! Not at all what I had agreed to. Then when I try to cancel, I can’t. There isn't an option to do so. So next thing I try to do is try to find customer service, and find out that all I have available to use, is email service. So this is my only issue I have with Lyft. Hopefully they can fix it. Cause I like to have both options (Uber and Lyft) available.
  • Please consider training

    By atl rider
    Some drivers need extra assistance, so a training program would be helpful
  • Drivers

    By Jags097
    For the most part, the drivers are great but on more than one occasion, the cars have reeked of old cigarette smoke.
  • Better Rides

    By CaliKid456
    Way friendlier rides with lyft. Want to save money on your next ride? Use code WHISKER when signing up and get anywhere from 5-20 dollars in free ride credits, based on where you are located.
