To run any software, there are various kind of software & hardware requirements.  And So are for Nox App player!


Nox App Player is a free Android emulator dedicated to bringing the best experience to users who want to play Android games and apps on PC. Based on Android 4.4.2 and compatible with X86/AMD, it gained a great advantage on performance, stability, and compatibility compared with similar programs like BlueStacks, YouWave or Andy the Android Emulator.

Keyboard typing, camera and microphone integration are basic functions of Nox App Player. What makes using Nox App Player special is that you can connect a gamepad and controller in a game. When it comes to ARPG (Action Role Play Game), the keyboard mapping function comes even handier since it makes it possible to use the traditional WASD key to control your character in the game, and you can set other keys to release skills or take shots. This is a very practical function since mobile games are developing towards great complexity.

Another noteworthy aspect is the multiplayer mode – an innovative feature which makes it possible for users to run several Nox App Player windows at the same time. Each window can run a different app/game. So instead of pushing other apps to the background, a user can switch between them with ease on the same computer screen. This is like having several phones for real-time multi-tasking.

Here’s a general list of those requirements that are needed to run Nox App Player.

  1. Operating system: Windows XP (32 bit) SP3/Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit)/Windows 8 (32 or 64 bit)/Windows 10Note: Nox App Player Works well in all the versions of windows, but we generally advise users to use a 64-bit version of Windows.
  2. AMD Dual-Core Processor or Dual Core and above Intel CPU(Virtualization Technology (VT-x or AMD-V) support preferred but not a must). Recommend CPU for Intel is i3 above.
  3. At least 1.5 GB RAM – Though we advise and insights users to have more RAM, as it helps to run the emulator smoothly.Note: You can run Nox even with 1 GB ram. However, we recommend having more than 4 GB ram.
  4. GPU with OpenGL 2.0+ support. You could download and run this tool to find your OpenGL version.GPU stands for Graphics Processing Unit or Otherwise commonly termed as Graphics Card/Video Card. You need a Graphics Card/GPU to run applications that demand heavy graphics.We recommend users to use a good graphics card as it will necessarily boost the performance of android emulators.
  5. At least 1.5 GB of free disk space under installation path (for saving Android apps/games and their data you may download and install) and 300 MB of the system disk.More hard disk space will be needed after you install apps in it.

Nox App Player is usually installed under C: by default, but you could choose to install it on another drive during installation.

Please note that Nox App Player is now fully compatible with major Antivirus’s such as Avast and BitDefender if you have VT enabled in your BIOS. To install and use both of them on the same PC, please make sure to disable VT first if any error occurs.

Note: Nox App Player cannot run in Virtual Machines.

  1. I use WiFi for my Nox App Player. Lately it has been showing me that there is no internet connection and as a result, I cannot back up my chats on Whats App. I’ve tried going to the android settings and switching on the WiFi but that still won’t work… Please help me out 🙁

    • Greetings, Though its possible to run nox App Player with a processor that doesn’t support VT-x, however, it’s not recommended. You see, most emulators rely on a VT-x capability to emulate Android environment of your computer. Hence if it isn’t present, the Android emulator will be quite slow. Usually, more recent processors all have VT-x unless you have a very old PC or processor.

      For the best experience with any Android Emulator, is generic to have a recent processor with VT-x, a good amount of Ram, and a graphics card.

      Regards.

    • Hello Thomas, Well Nox can be run on a Single Core Processor. However, we believe that it won’t get the speed benefits that you get on multiple core cpu’s. Though for android emulators, a graphics card is more important. Having a good graphics card will make your experience much better.

  2. i tried downloading the offline installer for nox V6.0.5.0 for mac but they say that i dont have the application to run the installer so what can I do ?

    • Right now we don’t have a dedicated Mac support enthusiast for android emulators. You’ll have to figure it out yourself. We request you to contact Nox directly for a possible conversation.
