Andy: The new way to play Clash of Clans for PC

These days, there are many players using Andy, a new Android Emulator, to play Clash of Clans on PC besides Bluestacks and Genymotion. With Andy, there is no barrier between your computer and Android. And of course, It’s totally free.


Here is the list of some features of Andy:

  1. You can use your smartphone as a remote control for playing video games.
  2. You can run all communication applications from Desktop like Whatsapp, Wechat,…
  3. You can easily config your device’s RAM, CPU, Video Card Memory,…
  4. You can access to the local file system of your virtual device.
  5. Desktop Push Notifications is an awesome feature!

I will stop here. I will write about the detail of these Andy’s features later. It’s time to go to our main topic now.

Truly, Clash of Clans is the best mobile game ever. With over 100 millions downloads on Google Play and 8 millions of 5-stars vote, people have been being crazy about this game for couples of years. Millions batteries have been being bought because of this game since 2011.

I can play this game every time: On train, on bus, while eating and even while I am working on my computer, I still want to play it. The other reasons to play Clash of Clans on computer is that you won’t need to worry about your battery, and you will have better screen resolution.

I have been playing Android games on my PC by using Bluestacks. But sometimes, I want to do somethings which Bluestacks cannot do like: Play Clash of Clans on my smartphone and my computer at a same time or I want to have a push notification while I am boosting my barracks for not wasting time. That’s why I found Andy, a new Android Emulator.

The only problem of Andy is that it required computers support Virtualization, have at least 3GB of RAM, 20GB of free space and support OpenGL ES 2.0 capable video card.

  1. I installed Andy and Clash, but when I try to open Clash, it’s just a black screen. All the other programs seem to be working fine. I don’t have Facebook, so I can’t get support on their FB page. Any suggestions?

  2. Regarding the black screen issue I found this on the Andy support facebook:

    “this issue affects Primarily Athlon and Phenom CPUs, although some
    “APU” series of AMD Processors are also missing the same instructions
    that the Athlon and Phenom CPUs ate missing.

    now as long as the CPU has SSSE3 instructions on it then you can play
    ARM apps in Andy. But as I said a fix is coming for this.”


  3. Are there other ways to install Clash of Clans on laptop with CPU that does not support virtualization? I still installed Andy on my laptop even with this problem and it only says ‘Starting Andy’ and after a few seconds, it does not open.

  4. I installed Andy and have been playing Clash of Clans. I can get on Facebook just fine with Andy and also have Google+ setup.. I can see my friends on Andy when they send me a pic or message through Facebook, but I cant find any of them in Clash of Clans. Another friend has Andy and coc and they can all find the same friends I’m trying to see. What am I doing wrong? is it maybe a setting I have wrong?

    • It is pretty hard to say. I’d like recommend them all but there are much more people using Bluestacks than Andy. Once you face a problem, you can find the way to fix it easier If you use Bluestacks.
