It’s no more new that during the start of the evolution of mobile phones and computers, probably mobile apps can not be used or run on computers, and for so long people don’t even think they lacking some convinency and people don’t look for a way to fix this for a long time.
And as the year goes by, technology started taking on the advance stage, it keeps growing massively worldwide, and it improve to that points where people can use their favourites, even any mobile application on their computers

On a normal ground, mobile devices are not always comparable to desktops or laptops but it doesn’t mean that modern mobile devices are not powerful. All nowadays phone actually comes with a fast processor, with huge RAM, and plenty of storage space, and there are a lot of sensors that can not be found on a desktop or laptop computer.
Of course definitely, it’s just because majority of these apps are mobile-only to a mobile platform and are not ported to a desktop. In some scenarios eg, with PUBG, an app of course could be ported to a desktop platform, but with others top applications like Snapchat or Instagram, these apps are actually still restricted to mobile platforms.
When Snapchat not working on Bluestacks
Technically, mobile apps can run on desktop but you need an emulator to do the job. What I mean by emulator is that, it is an app that runs on the desktop, and provides a mobile device-like environment for mobile apps. Mobile apps can be downloaded and installed within the emulator app, which can run on your desktop.
Obviously, Bluestacks is a popular Android emulator that is used to run Android apps on Windows and macOS. Also it actually supports many apps including popular games. It can also run Snapchat. If you are trying to install or run Snapchat, and it is not working, try the solutions below.
