Installing Remix OS Player
Jide just released Remix OS Player to run Remis OS on Windows PCs. Earlier, we had the Remix OS for PC but it only booted up using a USB flash drive or in a VM player. The Remix OS Player for PC works just like BlueStacks or Andy emulator. Remix OS Player comes running atop of Android Marshmallow. It is based on Android x86 project.
With Remix OS Player, Jide promises to give you the smoothest and fastest Android experience on your Windows PC. Remix OS already provided a lot of features which the ordinary emulators never did. Now those same features have made their way to the Remix OS Player.
Remix OS Player focuses on improving Android gaming experience on your Windows PC. You can also run multiple applications in parallel. For example, you are playing a game and you also want to chat with your friend, you can run the chat application and your game at the same time.
Remix OS Player comes with Google Play Store pre-installed. You can install your favourite Android Games and Apps for PC on the go.
Remix OS Player lets you choose what amount of RAM, how many cores and what display settings you want this emulator to use on your PC. Remix OS Player runs your favourite Android games and apps on your Windows PC just like you’re actually running those applications directly on your Windows OS.
If you never gave a try to Remix OS because of its long installation procedure, you should definitely give a try to Remix OS Player as it doesn’t require you to go through any hard and fast rules. Let’s have a look on how to install Remix OS Player for PC now and also learn to run some Apps for PC via Remix OS Player.
