How to Download and Install Showbox on Mac

Showbox is an amazing app specifically designed for Android devices so that you could instantly stream or download the online TV shows, movies and other programs. It is an Android platform application, but some users intend to use it on Mac operating system. Well, no worries! There are a few possible way outs to use this cross-platform app on Mac.

Just follow a few steps below to install and run the app on your Mac operating system and watch your favorite content when and where you like. Here is how to download and install Showbox on Apple computer.

As the ShowBox is an Android app, it is necessary to download and install an Android emulator on your MacBook. Without it, you are unable to run this app on Mac. Android Emulator will transform your Mac platform into an Android platform to run this app. There are three Android emulators available for this purpose: ARC Welder, Bluestacks and GenyMotion. I will guide you to use ShowBox by using ARC Welder. Bluestacks is very popular, but my preference is always ARC Welder because it runs well on Google Chrome. If you are not using Chrome browser, you can select GenyMotion or Bluestacks. Let’s begin the guide.

Download and Run Showbox on Mac by Using ARC Welder

Open Google Chrome and click Here to download “ARC Welder.”

On the top right side of Chrome, the option “Add to Chrome” appears. Select this option. The app will start checking the system requirements.  This process will take a couple of minutes.
