    Hello BHW!
    Today I want To Share Some Knowledge With Y'all

    I Will Teach You How To Use Android Apps Like Instagram On Google Chrome
    This works on PC, Linux, Mac & Chrome OS





    How Does This Works?
    It is really easy! What we are going to do is the following:
    1 Download the APK & Archon Runtime & Install Twerk (yes, TWERK)
    2 Install Archon Runtime
    3 Extract The APK with TWERK
    4 Install the APK & Have Fun!

    You don't need to have any heavy android emulator like bluestacks. You just simple go to chrome and launch the apk. This works smoother and faster than my Nexus 5 phone! Instagram uploads are fast AF so I think you could do some cool botting with this. Sadly some apps like Snapchat aren't able to use with this method.
    Here is an list of apps that work: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...bKOldsWXyrYiyo8/htmlview?usp=sharing&sle=true


    Step 1: Download The Files

    Download the following file:ARchon Runtime: https://archon-runtime.github.io/
    Install This Chrome Extension
    TWERK: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/twerk/jhdnjmjhmfihbfjdgmnappnoaehnhiaf
    Download The APK File of the android app:
    http://apps.evozi.com/ (Just search in the app store for an app and copy paste the link)


    Step 2: Install Archon Runtime

    - Download the ARChon runtime
    - Unzip the archive.
    - Open your extensions page in Chrome by going to Menu > More Tools > Extensions
    - Enable Developer mode in the top right corner, if it is not already enabled.
    - Select "Load unpacked extension."
    - Choose the folder containing the ARChon runtime you unzipped earlier.

    You may See this "error" its normal ;)

    Step 3: Extract App With TWERK

    - Download the APK from the app that you want to install
    - Type this in your browser: chrome://apps/
    - Open TWERK
    - Drag The APK In Twerk
    - Hit The Android Icon And Save it somewhere.

    Step 4: Install The App In Chrome

    - Open your extensions page in Chrome by going to Menu > More Tools > Extensions
    - Enable Developer mode in the top right corner, if it is not already enabled.
    - Select "Load unpacked extension."
    - Choose the folder containing the twerked APK (com.instagram.android_twerk for example).

    - Type this in your browser: chrome://apps/
    - Open the App

    Your Done!
    You can now run android apps on your PC and install other android apps in chrome.

    DISCLAIMERS:
    -I only have used this on an Chromebook & PC's. It should work on Linux & Mac also.
    -This tutorial is an easier version of this article: http://lifehacker.com/how-to-run-android-apps-inside-chrome-on-any-desktop-op-1637564101
    -Dont forget to check the list of working apps on the top before installing!


    If Anyone ever asks "how do i run insta on my pc without bluestacks?" link them to this article!

    Peace Out!

    My buddy told me about this method before but was too lazy to figure it out.

    Now that you have it all written out, I'm going to send it to my VA so she can create and/or manage my accounts with it.

    Cheers!
