I have already covered a tutorial on how to install WhatsApp on PC using Bluestacks, but few of our readers are unable to install WhatsApp and getting graphic card error and PC freezing problem. As alternative Bluestacks, we have YouWave. YouWave is an Android emulator that helps you to run your Android apps on your Windows PC with ease.
For the readers who don’t want to install Bluestacks on your PC here, we have another method to install Bluestacks on PC.
For this method, we will use an android emulator called YouWave. YouWave is another great software utility that allows you to install Android apps on PC. Compared to Bluestacks, Youwave is lighter and faster. You can install most of the android app directly using YouWave.
YouWave was released with support for Android 2.3 Apps, but now the latest version allows you to Install Android 4.0 ICS apps on your PC. You can also download Android APK from Google play store and directly install apps on PC.
Note: The only disadvantage of YouWave is it’s not available for free, but comes with ten days trial. After that, you have to purchase it using any one of the supported payment options on the product page.

YouWave is a good Android emulator and does work pretty well when you run Android apps on it. However, since it is not a free emulator, some users may still go with Bluestacks or Genymotion as they are available for free. YouWave could be a good choice if you are a developer and wants to test your Android apps on several devices. Though, you can do it using the Android SDK, but an emulator like YouWave makes it much easier.
