Download and install Wikipedia Beta on your Laptop or Desktop computer
If you want to install and use the Wikipedia Beta app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:
Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac
First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App or LD player . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer.
Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac
- Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
- Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer. - Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
- Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
- If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

You will see an icon called "All Apps".
