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

  • Best FREE cloud photo and video app in the App Store

    By TiffanyAcord
    I love google photos. The app neatly organizes all of my photos by date, event, place, pictures and videos upload in the background as they are taken... The only complaint is that occasionally I notice on my iPhone 6s Plus 128GB phone is that the photos won't start backing up UNTIL I open the app, photos that were taken hours earlier or the day before start uploading upon opening the app, this was an issue with my iPhone 5s 64GB phone as well. I hope with each update it will fix. So until then, only getting 4 stars. I'll put it to five once the uploads are completely in sync with my phones photos and videos without having to open Google Photos. Edit: issue is still occurring where photos and videos will not upload when the app isn't open. But that's okay, for now, this is the best backup app out there! So five stars it is. 🙃 Edit: the app "usually" uploads in the background now as of May 2018. I have the iPhone 8 plus 256gb at this time. Edit 2: app is MUCH improved on my iPhone 8 plus 😊
