Download Twitch for PC

To download Twitch for your PC you will need the BlueStacks App Player program. The application allows you to run Android apps on Mac OSX or Windows systems, install a definite number of apps, as well as sync apps from Android devices to desktop systems. Let us see how.

Download and Install Bluestacks

BlueStacks App Player is freely downloadable from the website of the creator of the application. You can also get the download from any other trusted software app hosting sites. Once you run the install, the program will be installed directly into your hard drive. You can either opt in or out for BlueStacks spotlight and notifications.

Run the Program

Once the installation is finished, the program will open in its home screen. Several options such as apps search, sync apps, access settings, etc. will be displayed on the home screen. You can now either start installing android apps or can sync your android device apps so that you can run them in your PC.

Download and Install Twitch

In order to install Twitch, you will need to have a Google account which will associate BlueStacks with the Google Play Store. You can register with your existing Google+ account. If you do not have one yet, you will need to create one. Apart from Google Play, BlueStacks connects with two more app stores – Amazon and 1 Mobile. All you need to do is to go to the app search section of the program and enter “Twitch”. You will be directed to the store that features it. Once you are there in the store (for example, in the Google Play Store), you can then navigate the features of that specific store and find the Twitch app. You can download Twitch without any difficulty and the installation will be performed automatically by BlueStacks itself.

Optional – Sync Android Apps from Your Phone Device

To sync apps from your android device, you will need to go to BlueStacks’ app sync section. First, you will need to download an app called Cloud Connect which is sourced by Google’s Android Market. Once the download is complete, you will need to move to the settings section of BlueStacks and click on Cloud Connect. This will direct you to a window asking you for your email id and your android phone number. Once you provide the details, you will receive a pin number that will be sent to your mail account by Bluestacks. You will be asked to provide this pin number when you opt to sync your existing android device apps to your PC. Remember however, that this will only sync the apps themselves to your PC system. As of now, BlueStacks does not equip you to sync app data such as game progress, login credentials, etc.
