Unlike other Android emulators, Genymotion is not designed to play your favorite Android games on Windows (even though you can), but it is built as a testing environment for Android developers, where you can emulate not only the OS but also emulate different devices (Samsung, HTC, LG, ...) available on the software as ready for download templates so that developers can test their apps on different devices. Download Genymotion now by clicking the download button on this page.
