Since you're reading this article, chances are you really love creating cool photos and videos. It would also be safe to assume that you are looking for software that can do the job quickly and easily.

InShot is one of the most popular mobile photo and video manipulation software tools that allows you to create similar videos in no time. However, despite the popularity, there is no dedicated application from InShot Inc. that you can install directly on your PC.



Don't worry, though, because there is a simple hack that will let you install the InShot app on your computer.

How to get InShot on your PC?

A few third-party apps/emulators allow you to run InShot without any issues on your PC. Take a look at some of the proven ways to install the app on your PC via third-party programs:

Use BlueStacks

BlueStacks is one of the most popular emulators for Android apps and games. Using this application is also one of the best ways to run InShot on your PC. Here is what you need to do:

1. Download BlueStacks

  • Follow the link to the official site and download and then install the application.
  • After installation, go to BlueStacks and link your Google account so that you can use Google Play with the app.

2. Search InShot

  • When you link the Google account, go to the main screen of the app and type “InShot Photo & Video Editor” in the search bar.
  • Select the application developed by InShot Inc. and install it.
  • A pop-up window will appear, asking you to allow the application to access your system. You must confirm by clicking on I accept.

3. Complete the installation

  • Once the installation is complete, you will receive a notification like the one you receive on your Android device.
  • At this point, you can go to the main Bluestacks window, where you will find the InShot app under your apps. Click on the app to launch it and start making cool videos.

Using Nox App Player

Nox App Player is another great emulator that lets you use InShot or any other Android video manipulation software on your PC. This app is installed pretty much the same way as Bluestacks and it gets you InShot up and running in no time.



Here are the steps to follow:

1. Get Nox App Player

Install Nox App Player on your PC and download InShot Photo & Video Editor APK.

2. Install InShot

After the InShot Photo & Video Editor APK is finished downloading, double-click it to start the installation via Nox App Player. Installing InShot can take about a minute. Once the process is complete, the InShot app will appear on the home screen of Nox.

3. Launch InShot

When InShot installation is complete, you can click on the app in Nox to launch it. At this point, you need to download the app data and follow the on-screen instructions. Once done, you can run the app and create awesome photos and videos.

Using Andy

If you are a Mac OS user, you should consider the Andy emulator as a great option to get InShot up and running on your Macbook or iMac. This neat piece of software works pretty much the same as the previously mentioned apps. Here's how to get the app on your Mac:

1. Install Andy on your Mac

Download the Andy .dmg file and start the installation on your Mac. You must then follow all the instructions until the installation is complete. A little patience is required as the installation process may take some time.


2. Launch Andy

Once the installation is complete, go to Launchpad and navigate to Andy. Select your preferred language and sign in with your Google account. After a few minutes, the app will configure your virtual Android device. At this point, you need to unlock it and use the Google Play Store.

3. Search InShot

Type InShot in the search bar of play store and install the app developed by InShot Inc. After the installation of InShot is complete, go to the Andy app section to launch the app. If InShot does not appear in the Application section, you should be able to find it under the Uncategorized tab.


4. Finish

Open the app by clicking on it and follow the instructions before you start using InShot.

Last word

Despite the fact that InShot is not natively designed to run on PCs, that doesn't mean you can't get it on your computer. Installing any of the emulators mentioned above is quite easy and you should have no problem using InShot after installation. Moreover, you can consider buying other Android software to further improve the quality of your videos.
