This guide contains the steps to follow to use Snapchat on Mac or Windows. Snapchat is a popular social messaging platform that has attracted a lot of attention over the years. This is probably due to the fact that the messages sent on the platform usually have a limited duration before they disappear automatically, something that is difficult to find in other competitors. In addition, Snapchat users receive a notification when other people take screenshots of their chats with them. Something that you can not find in other messaging applications out there either.

Unfortunately, Snapchat is only available for mobile devices (Android and iOS). However, there is a way to make it work on your MacBook or Windows PC. You can achieve this by using an Android emulator that basically transforms your MacBook or Windows PC into an Android virtual device. This allows you to download applications and Android games on your MacBook and run them as if you would normally run on an Android device.

There are many Android emulators for Mac or Windows that you can use to do this, but we will use one called BlueStacks. BlueStacks is probably the most popular and possibly the best Android emulator you can find. And the best part? It is not only for MacBook as well as for Windows PC. BlueStacks somehow transforms your PC or MacBook to an Android device that essentially allows you to download and run applications and Android games. You can also access the Google Play Store, but you must first meet the requirements.

How to use Snapchat on Mac or Windows

· Navigate to the menu/system preference application on your MacBook and choose Security and privacy.

· In General, scroll down a bit and check/tick “Allow applications downloaded from the app store and identified developers” and save the settings.

· Once this is done. Install the BlueStacks application, start it and follow the instructions on the screen to configure it. You are only setting up an Android device. While setting up, you must provide your Google account to access the Google Play Store.

· Now all you have to do is search for “Snapchat” using the search bar at the top of the application that will look for the Snapchat app in the Google Play Store. Click on the application and install it.

· Once the application is installed. Come back, start Snapchat and you’re ready. Now, you can log in (if you already have an account) or register to get a new account (if you do not have an account yet).

· You can use Snapchat on Mac or Windows through BlueStacks whenever you want. You can also download and use other applications such as Instagram, Kik, etc. While you’re in the Google Play store, then you definitely use it on your MacBook or Windows PC through BlueStacks.


BlueStacks is a very nice Android emulator that does things without problems and with ease. I even use mine to play games sometimes and you can try it too if you want. Do you have any questions about using Snapchat on Mac and Windows? Let us know by using the comments section below.
