What is BlueStacks?

2. Use APK file
APK file is an Android Package file, and it is the installer file for Android apps.
For some reasons in some cases, Play Store on BlueStacks may not work well or the app isn't available on the Play Store, it just has APK file.
To install, just find & download APK file to your PC, double click on it OR drag & drop it to BlueStacks home screen, then confirm that you want to install the app.

3. Use BlueStacks Cloud Connect
If Play Store and APK file don't work for you, you still don't end up here, you can use this last solution. BlueStacks Cloud Connect helps you sync selected apps from your smart phone to your PC. Below are steps to do:
+Open BlueStacks Settings by dragging down the right upper part of BlueStacks
+Then click on Cloud Connect and proceed further. It will require youe email & phone, then give you a PIN code.
+On your smart phone, let install BlueStacks Cloud Connect from Play Store. Then open the app and pair your phone with your PC by typing in your PIN. After that, you can tap any app you want to sync and tap Sync button.
