Earlier, there was a surefire way to run Snapchat on PC by using the BlueStacks emulator. However, recently company updated its app to block emulators and now BlueStacks is unable to run the app. Sure, you can install the app successfully, but you won’t be able to log in as the app crashes thereafter. There is another emulator called Andy Android which somehow bypasses the detection by Snapchat, but there are some major concerns with this emulator.
