Hi All,

Many of us think of that favourite media streaming app / the game we play in mobile is available to use in our laptop / desktop.
(You can use bluestacks and other android emulators - but they are slow and sucks )

So here is the method in which you can play your clash of clans / stream with the showbox, JioCinema , JioTV in your laptop.

Step 1 : Install Google Chrome browser (You can skip this step if you already have Google Chrome)

Step 2 : Go settings > extensions (shortcut - open this chrome://extensions/ in new tab) and check the developer mode.



Step 3 : Open Google Chrome and download ARC Welder extension. -  Press ‘Add to Chrome’  (Note : This downloads up to 150-200MB)


Step 4 : Press ‘Add app’


Step 5 : Open a new tab and press ‘Apps’

Step 6 : Open ARC Welder

Step 7 : Hit ‘Choose’ and select a directory or create a new one for ARC Welder (this is where the data for the installed apps are stored)


Step 8 : In ARC Welder, press ‘Add your APK’ and add the required apk (of the app you want to use)


Step 9 : Hit ‘Test’ (Note: You can enable full screen under Form factor)


Step 10 : Your app will now run on your PC. (If you are getting “Connection Error: Check your internet connection” error, simply open new tab in Chrome > Apps > Showbox (I checked with showbox app))


To launch the app in the future, open Chrome > New tab > Apps > "your app"

Thats it - start using your favourite app anywhere anytime - laptop & mobile.
