Installation Requirements: MacOS Version


To run BlueStacks App Player on MacOS, you'll need the following:

  1. You must run the app player with admin privileges. 
  2. A Mac running either Mac OS X Mavericks or Yosemite.
  3. At least 4 GB of RAM.
  4. 2 GB of free disk space.

We do not recommend installing the BlueStacks App Player if you have a virtual machine, e.g., Microsoft Virtual PC, VMWare Workstation, or Oracle Virtualbox, installed on the same PC.

Thank You!

    I had Bluestacks and VirtualBox co-exist on my development machine (iMac) for 2 months and both of them works just fine. As Bluestacks performance is really bad on my relatively old machine, I tried other emulators. And since then I reinstalled VirtualBox and they could never work together again.

    Bluestacks for OS X don't work like a charm... only for windows... searching another alternative... Bluestacks is a wasted time.
