Remix OS — an Android variant from Jide that turns Google’s mobile operating system into a desktop OS. Remix OS brings the lovely Android experience to your computer system. It is based on the Android OS & is completely different from the already existing Emulators. The remix takes basic Android and adds all the elements you’d expect on a PC or Mac: there’s support for mice and keyboards, a windowed interface, a file manager, system bar, and a dock at the bottom of the screen for your apps. And because it’s based on Android, it already has a load of apps ready to use — from Facebook and Microsoft Word to Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga.
Remix OS began as a vision for the world in which the boundaries between mobile and PC would forever be eliminated. Remix OS gives you access to over 2+ million Android apps and games. Most are free and can be installed with a single click from any Google PlayStore of your choice.
