How to run Android Apps in Google Chrome for PC's or Mac using ARC Welder

ARC Welder is a new Chrome extension that’s designed to be a developer tool. You can use it to install and run dozens upon dozens of Android apps within your browser. Previously, ARC launched as a limited beta but has now been made available to the public allowing you to easily run any Android apps on both Windows (PC) or Linux (This also includes Mac OSX based systems). Users can install any apps by getting the app .apk file (from websites like AppAPK) and install them. This includes both normal apps, games etc. ARC is based on Android 4.4, meaning a lot of standalone apps are immediately compatible. 

So now lets see how to install ARC Welder in Google Chrome and how to add apps to ARC Welder.

  1. Install the ARC Welder extension for your Chrome browser from here.
  2. Once the installation is done,  a screen will pop out and it will ask for the .apk file ( You can obtain a .apk app file a variety of ways, but the most common would probably be through a third-party APK file host such as or a service like )
  3. Once APK loaded, the extension will present a configuration screen that will let you choose orientation, phone/tablet mode, access level.
  4. When you are done with the configuration, hit the Launch App button. Enjoy!!!
