Kids school have started online classes via an Android app, following video classes on mobile is difficult.

I have used BlueStacks earlier for installing some apps via the emulator on laptop.

Is there a better emulator available?

Glad to see many options, can someone please help which one among these is better?
My requirement is not high-fi games, need to only install one app for education purpose.

All are shite one way or the other honestly. You can try them one by one though. BS is the most bloated. It feels like you’re in China while using that. Andy is a complete piece of shite. Tried Memu, can’t recall how it was. Nox never tried, i think. Try between Memu and Nox.

If you want a proper Android experience on pc, then flash Bliss ROM on a pen drive and boot into that when needed for those classes and whatnot. I don’t think any decent emulator exists which will run from within the Windows.

Instead of flashing on pendrive its better to create virtual drive via some app like daemon tools and flash there.

Even am seeking complete full fledged android experience on my touchscreen core i3 7th gen laptop but am skeptical on its performance as bluestacks and memu and nox run painfully slow

They used to be different..but now w/ android integration i dont see much different in the UI/Features
Its like the DeX mode for Samsung tablets (Desktop Friendly*)
To get an idea on the UI & features, check this

adding to what was suggested here ▶ https://www.desidime.com/discussions/android-emulato...

although i have not tried running any android OS from within VM in Win10, it worked well in the previous versions of Windows.
installing VM is as simple as installing any software.
thereafter one can find online any reliable source for the android ISO or executable or RAR (zip) and install the OS from within the VirtualBox.

Virtual Machine gives the peace of mind (safety) of keeping everthing else isolated and the sandboxing allows for one to even try random software or sites, without risking everything else on one’s device.

if installing and running complete OS and other applications from within ViirtualBox, just ensure you have sufficient space on the harddisk/partition.

i have not gone through the whole videos but found them as suggested on-line.

I have better suggestion
Use Apowermirror it mirrors your phone on laptop screen via usb cable/wifi.

No need of high ram and storage.
Use your phone on pc wink.
Plz give karma if this helps did a lot of research to find better solution.

Try writing Chromium OS ISO to a USB drive and booting from it. You can install the app in Chromium.
This might be of help.

Any update
What you installed.
I am also looking for such emulator.
Installing on pd seems a good option as these makes pc very slow.

I tried BS but as recommended in this thread it was bloated, so uninstalled it.

Didnt try one with installing on USB and other suggestions

Installing on a pen drive will make it even slower as the majority of garden variety ones are far too slow compared to even 5400RPM notebook drives. Random R/W which is a major weakness in mechanical HDDs and is a big plus point in Flash memory but in such drives even that is abysmal. Fast enough pen drives are often costlier than a decently sized SSD! Installing to a pen drive is an option if you want to check out the Android ROM without messing with the existing partitions. Bliss OS 12.12 (Android 10) based on kernel 5.8 is fantastic for semi-modern systems. Unlike Bluestacks a bunch of apps like Jio TV etc won’t work though.
Edit: ARM32 support isn’t added in x86 version of Android 10 yet. So for certain games Bliss OS 11.12/13 based on Pie is the better option. Thanks to GearLock its now possible to install Magisk, swap out the kernel or Mesa even in a running system. 11.xx is based on 4.19 which isn’t a good fit for recent systems. Swapping it out in favour of kernel 5.8 is said to be easy enough.

I had a slightly older version of BS (4.13?) installed previously which I uninstalled later due to unnecessarily high CPU usage almost all the time. Recently reinstalled the same, installed Blokada ad blocker and its behaving much better.
