Bluestacks has hit yet another milestone with the official release of Bluestacks 3 two months ago. Since its first release in 2011, this popular Android emulator for PC, now has over 200 million users under its belt.

In previous version, users are able to run multiple games at the same instance and switch between them using tabs. The newest version brings the Android emulator to a new whole level with the ability to not only open multiple windows but also use multiple accounts at the same time.

Moreover, Bluestacks users now has the upper hand in gameplay (especially in MOBA and RPG games) against mobile users, thanks to the ability to use keyboard and mouse together on the Android emulator. To enable keyboard controls, toggle slider on the left of the keyboard icon or hit hot key F10, while playing a game. You can play any FPS game just like you would play Counter-Strike on PC. 🙂
