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

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

  • $20 coupon: RIDE827

    By CoinbaseLover💰💰💰
    First of all, if you haven't taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon "RIDE827" to get $20 off your first ride!! Enter it right before you request a ride. Go to the Payments tab in the app and enter the coupon there. Might as well try it out since it probably won't cost you a thing!! The app is simple, easy to use and intuitive by design, giving you important info like the driver's face, phone number, and car make and model. It's amazing how quick and seamless the entire process is. A car comes to your door within minutes of pressing a button!!! The drivers are real people, they are very polite and their cars are clean! Some even come with complimentary water, gum and candy! Even if you want to charge your phone, a lot of drivers have phone chargers at your ready!! Lyft is definitely cheaper than your average cab. After all this, I don't see why you would ever use a yellow cab again. Even if you want to get a black car on the occasional night out, it's still cheaper and more convenient than hiring your own private driver. The customer support is also fantastic. I got overcharged on one of my trips and I didn't have to say anything more than a short comment on my driver feedback to get a full refund. I'm very happy and I hope Lyft continues to exceed my expectations in not only the app but customer service! I also prefer Lyft much more than other competitors, mainly because they have so much more supply and cars are always just a few minutes away!!!!
  • Ride Scheduling System is Unreliable

    By Caramelatte
    I’m almost satisfied the Lyft app, however, requesting a ride can be so difficult for me. About five times a week, I need a Lyft to get me to my SAT tutoring session at very specific times. Initially I tried scheduling Lyfts in advance. The scheduling system is horrendously unreliable. Most of the time, drivers arrive way too early, outside of the pickup window I requested. This is inconvenient for me because my destination demands a punctual arriving time. On one occasion, I had to pay a cancellation fee because the driver waited too long for me (note that the driver arrived way before the scheduled pickup window). On the other hand, drivers plan to arrive later than the pickup window. I’ve had to turn away drivers because they were too far. My pickup window would be 15 minutes away, meanwhile, the driver would arrive in 30 minutes... As of now, I can’t even depend on scheduling. Whenever I feel like it’s the “right time” to schedule a Lyft to take me to my location, I just press the ordinary request button. Unfortunately, the calculations of ride time and scheduling are now projected onto me, which makes this feature very inconvenient to use. I have to get to a location that’s 30 minutes away, but instead I have to request a Lyft over an hour in advance.
  • How This App Almost SAVED My Families Life

    By Kay-69
    Well, my dad had quit his job as an engineer and now he works as a Lyft driver. he had his job of being an engineer for around 28 years. i would cry because i thought we wouldn’t even have enough money to pay our bills. i also cried because he worked at night, and some horrible alcoholics would harm him. I called him late at night and at that time i thought he worked both jobs, then i found out that it was only his job of being a “ Lyft “ driver. i has no clue why he even hid this secret from me, and tried messing with my head. but i still love him. he probably didn’t tell me because i’m the 2nd youngest of the family, out of 5. he told me he was looking for a new job, but i didn’t understand why he needed a new job. probably because he was bored..? i don’t know... me and the rest of the family, but my father, had prayed, and prayed. but now we need to keep on waiting for God to accept of message. only pure hearted people get what they desire. i wish i was truly pure hearted, but at times i’m a horrible child. welp, and yeah, that’s about how this app saved our family SO FAR... i would love to shout-out this app! this app is the greatest thing ever! ;3 :D #-# ¥~¥ £~£ €~€ ¥-¥ £-£ €-€
  • 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.

  • Poor service

    By likit96
    Lyft is over rated I spend 100's of Dollars with them monthly, for cars with McDonald's all over the back seat and poor compensation. This Easter Sunday no cabs were available for 45- 1 hour so got a Lyft, it pinged letting us know he was at our home but he was no where to be found. We were down to have him speed by three mins early from down the street no where close to our location. I tried calling since he was leaving early and was at the completely wrong house for him to refuse to pick up. My boyfriend was a hour late into work and written up and I lost my intire shift and holiday bonus. When I contacted asking to be compensated I expected ten percent off all rides for may or equal compensation for our loss for me to be issued a five dollar credit which wasn't even half the cost of the ride. When I emailed them back telling them how underwhelming that was I was blatently ignored. No longer a customer and wouldn't recommend them.

  • First Timer

    By Italian Mystic
    I have always used Uber, however my dear friend said Lyft is her top pick because they treat/pay drivers better. I love hearing this so I downloaded the app. I was taking a early flight, we could schedule in advance and pick my airlines ( knew which terminals we needed dropped off). AMAZING!!! thank you!

  • Very considerate!!!

    By DedricB
    Their driver are very considerate of the passenger safety and deliver them the best service a person can ask for
  • Lost a customer

    By my4always
    Customer service is a joke for starters... I spent so much money with lyft and it was convenient for my son to pick his sister up from after school... here comes the harassment about my sons age (17) and never had any issues till recently some of the drivers would question his age and refused to transport him!! One stated he was under the age of 17, then weeks later another stated hes under the age of 18!! To call customer service and ask and complain of the professionalism and guidelines, the lady kept telling me he’s considered 17 and under!!! Never had any issues and or complaints until all of this!!! I’ve closed my account!!
  • Very high volume of cars

    By Mr.Nite Mare
