Snapchat is one of the leading Social Platform and most mobile users using this app. The developers of Snapchat have been working day & night to provide new features like Snapchat Online account access.

Snapchat provides a platform for one’s creativity by allowing a user to edit the captured photos and make them look better than it was before. A lot of people use this app, and some are like keeping it mandatory for their smartphones to have it.
There are a lot of similar apps we can find on Google play store and again, a lot of app developers keep launching similar apps from time to time. It is only because the reach of these apps cannot be measured if the business clicks once.
However, users expect this kind of chatting apps to be free from frauds and spammers and the usage is expected to be smooth. If the app keeps crashing or options don’t work, users tend to ignore it simply. Given the number of apps, ignoring happens as easy as that. Within this massive complications and competitions, Snapchat Web placed itself firm in the market, and now, it is loved by many people and ranked in the top 5.
Snapchat is the toughest competitor of the other apps serving the same purpose. The purpose is same, but the features differ from app to app. In this case, Snapchat stands on the tougher side. Every smartphone today has this fantastic messenger app. On an average, every individual uses it for about 25 to 30 minutes per day(Snapchat CEO says).
Snapchat is one of the best social messenger apps in the world that allow users to share quickly deletable (in seconds) pics, stories, and videos to others. Isn’t that something fascinating? It’s new in social media, isn’t it? Snapchat is becoming popular because of its magical features.

This login is not enough to enjoy the main features(Sending pics, videos, stories and winning trophies, etc.) of Snapchat.

I have already mentioned that this is just about managing one’s Snapchat account it is not about enjoying the Snapchat account. Well, don’t be worried there is also a way to enjoy your Snapchat account. Let’s understand how we can do it? In order to enjoy Snapchat features and do stuff like Sending pics, videos, stories and winning trophies, etc. We must have Android App for iOS App otherwise run the app on computer with the help of software known as Android Emulator. What is this android emulator? Well, it is software that initiates Android apps to run on Windows systems. Some Android emulators like Andy, Bluestacks, Nox App Player, etc. are available. Let’s understand how to make use of these emulators in order to log in to Snapchat on PC.
#2 – Snapchat Login on PC using Bluestacks
As I already said Bluestacks is an Android emulator that allows Android apps to run on your PC. Before you proceed, you need to check the stability and speed of your internet. If a user wants to go for this option or the second one mentioned below, then a user must be ready with some required PC configurations like enough RAM, sufficient space to store application data of an emulator and higher windows version. These required settings make sure that your purpose will have a happy end.
- Download Bluestacks from the official site.
- Install Bluestacks on your PC after downloading.
- Download the Snapchat APK file from Google Play store.
- Go to option “Open with Bluestacks” (right click on file).
- Now you see that Bluestacks will install Snapchat Online on your PC provided you have the webcam.
On a brief note, getting Snapchat Desktop is secure now. All you are required to do is get Bluestacks to work on your computer, and that is again very simple. Just download the file that is around 300 MB from its website. Next step is to run the installer. You will now automatically know the emulator when it is installed. Go through the step process that would be apparent during the installation. Now, link the Bluestacks application to your Google account. Having a Google account is mandatory to start the initial step of the process at all.Once this process is over, just visit the Google play store and download Snapchat and that is all is left.
However, to use Snapchat Desktop, you will need a camera on your PC. This is how you will be able to share stories and connect with people. Do understand that if you are ever installing anything on your PC that has no webcam then expect multiple annoying prompts and several errors that will follow. But then, if you have all power click n number of cancel options, then you will be able to use it. Without a camera on PC, you cannot naturally click a picture. If your PC works fine on the camera front, you can just use it like you use the smartphones. Press the center button available on the app and take a snap of yourself. Or you will be required to hold it down for a minute to start recording a video. Again, you must be having a working microphone for the same. If the camera on your PC has a built-in microphone, then it shouldn’t be a problem, and most of the PCs now are launched with this feature.

#4 – Snapchat Online using Myamo
Manymo is also an Android emulator which stimulates an Android app to run online on Windows OS. Using Manymo for Snapchat Login on PC has one advantage over the other emulators we have already discussed above. i.e. in the case of Manymo no need to download any software or program file. It has quick boot option which enables quick uploading of images. One demerit of this emulator is, it is not free like the other Android emulators discussed above. There is a limit put on its free usage/month. A user should directly go to:
- Visit Manymo.com and sign up.
- Once signed up you have a choice to choose the trial version/paid version. The choice is up to you whether you choose the trial version/paid version. I recommend you to go for trial version first, later on, maybe you can switch to paid version.
- Download the APK file of Snapchat.
- Save the Snapchat APK file on your computer.
- Login to Manymo now.
- Now hit the browse button to select Snapchat’s APK file.
- Follow the steps as needed further and start using Snapchat on your system.

It has so many great features in contrast with other snap sharing applications. Snapchat’s one best feature is auto deletion of shared stuff. Snapchat provides a facility of setting a timer to the stuff that user wants to share with his/her friends. It means a user can set time of appearance to the snaps/videos he/she is sending to others.
