In the software industry, a recently born niche is Android emulator. Right now, BlueStacks app player is dominating it we also got YouWave.
Here is a guide on how you can download YouWave for PC and also how to install it to get it running and make use of.
Out of many available Android emulator software, YouWave is the premium one which comes at a price and along with dedicated support and help guides.

I’ll not only introduce the YouWave software but will also let you know the reasons why you should be using it over any other emulators on in simpler words, why YouWave is the best alternative to BlueStacks.
About YouWave Software
The software is developed by a software developer unit and it is a totally trustable solution. Yes, around thousands of users are already running it on their system and most of them are all happy.
There is always a limit when it comes to Android emulators and that’s the reason users should understand. Android emulators can help you run some apps and play few games but not each and every one.
To experience full features, you need to buy a middle-end or high-end Android smartphones. Because your PC or laptop can’t have smartphone or tablet like hardware or base software.
Still, YouWave got a simple user interface to start with which is very much identical to Android OS (operating system) itself. Currently, it is running Android ICS (4.0) version of the OS.
Once it starts running, then you’ll find two split screens. One section will display home screen as of a smartphone while other will display few controllers (arrow keys and few other).
You can use any of the apps from there. To instal fresh ones, you need to use Browser app over there to first open Google play store and then select app or game of your choice (more on this later).
When it runs for the first time, you can select the Free Trial option from the first interaction that will start your free trial of 10 days. After that, you’ll find the YouWave running.
Now, launch the browser, open Google play store and start installing any app or game as of your choice. You can find any of them over there, but not every of them will work on your computer or laptop.

You also have to login with a Google account just before the app or game starts installing, which will be an automatic process. The login is required because you’re accessing Google’s ecosystem.
It is a premium software that offers first 10 days of free trial. This gives everyone a window to experience using the software and then decide whether to buy it or not.
Since it’s a premium solution so it does come with dedicated support and help team. But only if you buy the premium plan.
UI is just like the Android OS and there are no changes in there (even if you compare desperately). This makes the using of software very easy if you are familiar with Android OS.
It is running an older version of Android OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) while there are already three versions launched after that.
Not every app or game are working and you may also experience few lags and performance issues.
Download YouWave Software for Windows
You can get it downloaded just like any other software. Right now, it is available only for Windows platform. So, there is no chance of using it for Mac (don’t even try any unofficial method if you find over internet).
Simply follow the link I’ve added to next line and the software will begin downloading.
YouWave for PC Download (Official)
One key factor over here is that the installer package is available in an offline format. So, it will take the time to get downloaded once because of heavy size but later you won’t require internet during its installation.
After clicking on the above link, you’ll be asked to select Folder where you wish to place it or else it will be placed into default download folder as set in your Browser.
There are few specific software requirements from PC and those are,
The system should have at least 2GB of RAM. But I’d recommend you to have at least 4GB as I found certain lags in 2GB system.
The system should be running on the freshly updated graphics driver which is compatible with HD standard of visuals. If your system is of 2014 or 2015 standards, then you need not worry over here, otherwise you need to upgrade the system at your end.
One simple way for that is to add a dedicated graphics card of minimum 1GB size. It will totally change the game playing experience at your computer.
Also, if you’re using it over Windows XP system then make sure that it is being updated and its Service Pack 3 is installed in your system.
In case of using Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, you won’t find any issues. I even try running it on the developer preview of Windows 10 and it was working for few hours without any lags.
How to Install YouWave for PC (Windows)
Go through the steps I’m writing down here and it will take around 2-3 minutes to get the software ready.
Step 1 – You’ve already downloaded the installer package. Double click on the same now.
Step 2 – A pop-up will appear asking for the permission to run the installation process. Select Run option from there.
Step 3 – Installer window will appear then. Now, click on Next, accept Licence agreement when asked to and proceed by clicking on Next, Next options.
Step 4 – Finally click on Finish option when asked to and that’s it.
The process is over and I hope it was simple enough. You can even remember it for using it in future.

The software isn’t free, but you get free ten days of trial. You can download and install its crack file which is available over internet. Although I won’t recommend going that way because it can hurt the health of your system.

Without logging in with a Google account, the app or game will not start installing. There is no way you can pass this requirement. Although you can use a spare Google account here, just in case if you don’t trust the software.
Using the software is just like using an Android smartphone. Both keyboard and mouse works fine. But not all keys of keyboard functions with it.
