Looking to set up the popular dating app Growlr for PC? In this article, we’ll show you how you can spend hours browsing and chatting on this app from the comfort of your PC or laptop computer instead of fumbling with your smartphone and its tiny screen.
Growlr App Review
The Growlr app is a dating app aimed at a specific segment of the community. The app is free (with some significant options for in-app purchases), but aims to connect like minded people, and to make it easy to start talking, make new friends, and get to know other people.
Like I said, the app is free, and the sign up is quick, and very little of your personal information is required, though you can share more about yourself if you like. The app allows you to create fake profiles, or to be as truthful (or not) as you like in the information that you share about yourself, so naturally I have to caution you about what you share on this app and with you.
In this app, you can share information about yourself, browse other profiles, search for other members by location and online status, leave comments, and chat. All in all, it is very simple and functional, though some complain that the app seems “dated.”
How to Use Growlr on a PC (Windows or Mac)
Growlr does not currently offer an option to use its service on a desktop. However, you can actually get around this with the use of an Android Emulator.

With an Android Emulator, you can trick the smartphone app into running on your desktop computer, thereby freeing up your phone for other business, and giving you the freedom to more easily browse the app and chat.
The hardest part of getting started with an Android Emulator is picking out the emulator you would like to utilize. We like Bluestacks, Nox, and LDPlayer, though there are several other high quality (and free) options out there. If you want to know more about your emulator options, check out our Emulators Page.
Once you have decided on an emulator, here are the steps to get started with Growlr for PC:
- Choose your emulator
- Download your emulator
- Install your emulator on the PC computer you want to use
- Open the emulator program on your PC
- Inside the emulator, navigate to the Google Play Store
- Select and download the Growlr app
- Open the Growlr app inside the emulator
- Use Growlr as you normally would
It is fairly simple to do, once you’ve installed your emulator.
Growlr isn’t an app for everyone. But for the target audience, it is a very functional and effective app. It is currently ranked 4 out of 5 stars in the Play Store, and has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times. It is rated 17+ (Mature).
