Android does have tones of features to offer but its not that good to make it your Primary OS of your PC. If you’re an Android gamer, only thing that limits everything is comfort of playing games, small screen size & lot more. Many people might suggest you to install Remix OS & enjoy Android games directly on PC but it would be hell lot of pain as you won’t be able to enjoy Windows like features. To tackle all this issues, the virtual Android/Android Emulators came into the picture.

MEmu is a brand new free Android emulator that brings fun of the Android experience to Microsoft Windows devices. It runs on nearly all Windows devices (PC, notebook, 2-in-1 devices, tablets). Comparing to other Android emulators, MEmu provides the highest performance and greatest compatibility. What this Emulators do is, they allow you to run Android applications inside an application itself running in Windows. You might have heard of Bluestacks, but its one of the heaviest windows app. Although it does the job pretty well, most people avoid installing it because of its huge post installation size.

Features of MEmu over other emulators:

  1. Full Android experience with an elegant desktop
  2. Flexible customization (CPU, memory size, resolution, device model, Navbar location, root mode, etc.)
  3. Mapping the keyboard / joystick to screen touch for much better game experience
  4. Passing through sensor data (e.g. accelerometer) to Android, so you can play car-racing like games intuitively
  5. GPS location simulation
  6. File sharing between Windows and Android
  7. Fast APK installation by dragging and dropping
  8. One-click android system creation / clone / deleting, and you can run multiple Android instances simultaneously
  9. Pokemon GO for PC

What’s makes MEmu better than other emulators?

    Doesn’t work. Upon installing and logging in, you are forced to upgrade the game version and google play says it is incompatible and won’t give the upgrade. Wasted time!

  • rich reamer

    does not for me either.if you have older PGO installed, it forces you to update to 43.4.
    at that point, after updatin, it always fails with: unable to authenticate

  • Martha Gomez

    Is it work o not?

  • Don

    Going thru the trainer club I get the same that our servers are busy. Going thru a google account it says I need to update my version of Pokémon go. In google play it says my device is not supported so I tried updating thru the browser and the browser is no longer supported by MEmu. What gives?

  • John

    Installation has stopped around 80%. What a disappointment

  • hacker

    unable to authenticate with v0.39 🙁

    • danny

      Has it been fixed? Was going to try this but pointless if it doesn’t work?

  • Skyjumpninja

    as of 11.45 a.m Sept. 29th 2016, this app is not working. it loads all the way to the actuall opening screen for pokemon go, then you recieve the error message from Pokemon go. “our servers are humbled” Blah blah blah. Then nothing. tried more than 8 times and always get same results. Uninstalled. Please update or fix. thanks.

  • Blurb

    Doesn’t work – Niantic says unsupported device.

  • Waime

    Will be an update for 0.39?

  • Harambe


  • Van

    Not working anymore as Android is under 4.4+ on this emulator

  • Kevin Maughan

    anyway to make you travel faster?

  • team red

  • Sanswalker

    it is not working at all. Our servers are humbled by your incredible response

    • Devs-Lab Staff

    Unable to play after install – Our servers are humbled by your incredible response

  • james

    server error???

  • Devendranath

    not working in my pc.when it starts a black colour appers and home screen of MEmu will be opened

  • Sarah

    Doesn’t work very well. If you set the GPS anywhere other than the location your IP address is coming from, you get a soft ban and cannot use pokestops or catch Pokémon. If there is a fix for this, please post it. I’m not current on all the latest hacking methods. I just want to be able to play the game when I can’t get out and walk around.

    • lennardmcg

      you have to spin a pokestop 40 times and then the ban disappeares

    • Brood

      It will always revert back to where you are. Key is to not use pokestops further than about a 10 mile radius from where you are, which ought to give you enough to work with.
      Also, if you want to catch anything elsewhere, key in the coordinates and get to the pokemon, upon clicking on it to start throwing balls to catch it, first change your location back to where you were, and then catch it. No soft ban then! 🙂

  • Sarah

    Thanks for making way to play Pokémon Go when I’m unable to get out of the house with out screwing up all my phone settings! Now I can create a new account for the PC version without tarnishing my legit, cheat free account on the phone. 🙂
