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

Google Classroom Software Features and Description

Classroom is a free service for schools, non-profits, and anyone with a personal Google account. Classroom makes it easy for learners and instructors to connect—inside and outside of schools. Classroom saves time and paper, and makes it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organized. Classroom is designed to help teachers create, collect, and grade assignments paperlessly, including time-saving features like the ability to automatically make a copy of a Google Document for each student. It also creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student to help keep everyone organized. Students can keep track of what’s due on the Assignments page and begin working with just a click. Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades right in Classroom. With the mobile app for iOS, students and teachers can view their classes and communicate with their classmates in real time. Students can open their assignments and work on them right from their iPhone or iPad. Teachers can keep track of who has turned in work and grade the assignment - at school or on the go. Students and teachers receive notifications when they have new content in Classroom, so they are always up to date. There are many benefits of using Classroom: Easy to set up Teachers can add students directly or share a code with their class to join. It takes just minutes to set up. Saves time The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review, and grade assignments quickly, all in one place. Improves organization Students can see all of their assignments on an assignments page, and all class materials (e.g., documents, photos, and videos) are automatically filed into folders in Google Drive. Enhances communication Classroom allows teachers to send announcements and start class discussions instantly. Students can share resources with each other or provide answers to questions on the stream. Affordable and secure Like the rest of G Suite for Education services, Classroom contains no ads, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes, and is free. Permissions Notice: Camera: Needed to allow the user to take photos or videos and post them to Classroom. Microphone: Needed to enable audio capture for recording videos to be posted to Classroom. Photos: Needed to allow the user to attach photos or videos to Classroom. Photos or videos posted to Classroom will be stored on Google servers in order to show them in Classroom.

    For the most part, it is awesome. There is a programming glitch between the chrome version and mobile version. If my students need to insert a pic into a doc and do so from their phone, they can see the pic in the Google doc. But most of the time, that pic is not visible in the doc on my end when I open the same google doc from my computer. We have not figured out how to do it from the phone. Many of my students do not have computers at home. The other inconvenient thing has to do with posting assignments. If I accidentally make an assignment with an attached doc and forget to “make a copy for each student” I am unable to edit or add it. I have to delete the whole assignment and start over. That can be time consuming if my instructions are long. Other than these two items, it is awesome! I’m in the process of having cataract surgeries and being able to zoom in on work has saved me a lot of grief grading papers. Thanks for providing such a wonderful tool for both students and teachers!
  • Needs a “to do” list in the app

    I’m a homeschooling mom, and I am really happy having this option. It’s added a bit of structure and allows my kids to look ahead and even work ahead if they’d like. However, we are rarely on our computers. Most of the time we do things on actual paper (they’re 9 and 10 so we’re still refining penmanship) and our phones. There are certain things you can do on the main computer that I can’t seem to do on my phone. #1 issues is not having a “To Do” list option. If they look at the stream feed they only see ALL of the lessons I’ve put in that may be random. I’d like them to see a concise list of what is due, in order of due date, without having to go to the calendar to find the link. #2 When I added my mom as a co-teacher she clicked the “join” on the email, but it didn’t work until we did it on a desk top.
  • Love it, but a small glitch

    I love Google Classroom overall - it has made my job as a teacher so much easier. However, there is a glitch with the app. When I am absent I will use the app on my iPad to go in and post an assignment to all of my classes. At school, on my laptop, I am able to make one post and post it to multiple classes at once. The app allows me to do this, but then when the students actually go to do the work, only the class I made the post in gets the post. All the others either don’t have a post or they have the post but can’t access the attached document. It’s makes a huge mess of the day because I’m not there to realize it’s happened. I figured it out cause it’s happened more than once now. Please fix this glitch in the app - Google Classroom is my most favorite teaching tool ever.
  • I Like It, But I’m Silenced? 🤨

    Let me start off by saying that I love Google Classroom. It’s a great tool for me to have so I can check my assignments on the go without having to rely on a computer (except for WiFi and Service). Except I noticed a small bug that I may not be the only victim of. On my phone, I can only make class comments for certain classes. Like for my English class, I can press Add Class Comment, but it just takes me to a screen saying there is no class comments making me unable to add anything. I love this app and all, but I would really like this to be fixed so I could communicate with my classmates/teachers through Google Classroom. I’m only 13, so your probably not gonna listen. But please have an open mind towards my review. I hope I’m not the only one going through this problem and that getting this fixed will help a lot of people.

    I hate this app! It’s good but what happens if you’re teacher is absent and you don’t have a code? Hmmm? Exactly! I am at home and my project is due 2 days later and I fergot my class code and I can’t do it! I hate it! The google classroom should have back up accounts we can enter in or put the name of our teacher to get in if we fergot code! I hate this app!
  • Awesome!

    I love this app so much, but I wish that there can’t be a notification if there is a late assignment or a reminder that an assignment that’s due that day
  • Why google classroom

    Honestly in my opinion I hate google classroom, yes it’s easier and less messier, but honestly they give too much work and homework through there and it’s annoying

    With the newest iOS update, as a student I cannot put pictures into the google doc, then submit them into a teacher. It’s just easier to upload them into the doc, as it takes longer to post them as an attachment. I hope this gets solved, I am just trying to complete my class.
  • Won’t let me open up surveys

    I believe there has been a recent update and ever since then I haven’t been able to open up surveys on my phone.
