      "Bliss lets you use Android Oreo or If you want Nougat, It's much more advanced than the discontinued OS Remix OS and better and less buggy than Phoenix OS, the download is quick and easy and you will not regret it. I use it to play Rules Of Survival and Hero Hunters as well as Word and Excel. Very good OS"

      "I do a lot of app development, and this has been a life saver! It's way faster to compile and test directly in the Android-x86 VM than to do an adb push to test a new build. It does run a bit slow, but I'm using it on an older system."

      "Though it took some searching, I did find that you can run Android in VirtualBox on Windows. This is a very good solution here. VirtualBox is a very good application."

    DID YOU KNOW

    While primarily intended for mobile devices, the Android OS is now also used officially used for smartwatches, TVs, and cars. Google, who acquired the company in 2005, has developed Wear OS for smartwatches, Android TV for smart TVs, and Android Auto for cars. Unofficially, Android can also be installed on a personal computer through a third-party software. App developers are often the ones to use Android on a PC, in order for them to make sure that the app runs smoothly through every step of development. There are different ways to install Android on a PC, and one of them is to run a device emulator. As the name suggests, a device emulator lets users simulate an Android device as a virtual device. Essentially, the user is running Android on his PC, which is emulating an Android device. The other ways to use the Android OS on a PC is to use a software that is based on the Android Open Source Project. Programs like Android-x86 and Remix OS were created to run the mobile operating software on other platforms, such as computers with x86 architecture. With these programs installed, users can use the Android OS as an alternative desktop operating system and run Android applications on their computers.

It's super convenient being able to access my Android System on my computer; especially since I use my computer so frequently. This tool has been a breeze to use; easy to set up, easy to find. It's one of the better ones that I have found."

      "This is what Microsoft shamelessly tried to steal for Windows 8. While that crashed and burned, this is the real deal. It's fluid and what I'm used to on my phone, but on my desktop! Of course, sometimes it feels a bit clunky without a touchscreen monitor, but I still find I'm pretty productive when using Phoenix OS."

      "The program is lightweight and fast. It requires a small amount of storage. Though, it doesn't seem as feature-rich as some of the alternatives. Some features are missing that are pretty much deal-breakers for me."
