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!
  • Love it, but a small glitch

    By LuvReading79
    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? 🤨

    By HelpfulN00b42
    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.
  • Pretty Great!

    By AnnlingFace
    I️ know there are a lot of people out here who are saying that they hate google classroom and that it’s needlessly advanced, and all I️ have to say is; catch up with the years! This is where technology is now, and if you don’t get it or think it’s overly difficult, then you clearly were not trained or taught this form of technology. I️ think, for those of you who actually understand how this stuff works, it’s a great tool to use in classrooms that makes schoolwork and homework much easier. I️ do practically all my schoolwork on the computer, using google classroom. It’s really a great idea for a simple way to do schoolwork and such. Plus, no matter how much you fight it, this is where society and education is headed anyway. There’s nothing you can do about it, except learn, appreciate, and accept it.

  • Please add a dark mode

    By PolygonFruits#1596
    I love the new design because it matches with my Pixel’s UI, but please add a dark mode. It would help the eyes of many. Another issue is that only half is redesigned and if you go into an assignment, the ugly background color tint still exists.
  • It’s horrible

    We have to do stuff
  • Hey Google Please make an update to iOS 9

    By Henrymateo20378
    I want Google classroom to make an update for iOS 9 because I have my students used an old iPad that is only runs to iOS 9 not later updates like iOS 10. Please google and I will report if you and staff don't change it!!
  • So upset with this stupid app!🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

    By t1ggster
    My school grades went down all because when I summited my work, it auto unsummit my summited work
  • To all the noobs out there...

    By YodaLightsabr
    If you can’t comment, it’s because the teacher turned it off. If you can’t view the picture, it’s cause you’re viewing the wrong document. If you can’t make a class, it’s because you signed up as a student. If you can’t view the full assignment, it’s because of the new class work page. These tips are for the lame ones that complain and leave a bad review instead of checking the support section.

    Can you guys make a dark mode????
  • Hate the New Design

    By Random girl993
    I’ve been using classroom for about 4 1/2 years now and it’s been absolutely fantastic. However the redesign is absolutely horrible to look at for me. Where your classes used to stretch to the borders of the screen, making it quick and easy to find the class you wanted, now there’s a hideous white margin. Besides that a couple of banner colors have been tweaked. For example, the orange fishtail pattern is now a magenta hue and one of the darker blue banners has been considerably lightened. Some alterations are worse than others. The biggest flaw in the new design has to be the extra bright white margins. It’s still working fine, the weird drive glitch is still there but now it looks about 10x worse.
  • Not happy

    By Sydney21 wonderglee
    Tbh I like the app it’s a great idea but the new update is trash. Lots of other kids at my school have said the same thing. Please change it back to the way it used to look. The new format is hideous
  • Ruined by update

    By OtakuFreakSaph
    In its latest attempt to look “modern”, Google has completely ruined any of its functionality in the Classroom app. You cannot scroll further than the first page of any class, and until these bugs are fixed I cannot recommend that anyone use the app.
  • turn off feature

    By OwlAboutSarah
    The ability to TURN OFF submissions is MUCH NEEDED. Deadlines that make it so work can no longer be submitted without deleting the assignment would make ALL TEACHER LIVES BETTER.
