5. How to Upgrade From a Previous BlueStacks Version

To upgrade an existing version of BlueStacks to a more recent one, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the latest version of BlueStacks from our website and run the installer.
  2. If you have a previous version installed, you will be prompted to update instead of running a clean install. Just click on the “Update” button and let the installer run its course.
  3. Once finished, your BlueStacks will be updated to the latest version, while keeping your apps and data intact.

In the past, whenever you wanted to upgrade to a new version of BlueStacks, you had to manually uninstall the previous version before running the new installer. For obvious reasons, this process was quite cumbersome. However, with BlueStacks 4, you can easily upgrade to a newer version of our app player without having to uninstall the previous one. If you’re not sure which version is the most recent, simply go to and click on “Download BlueStacks.” This will automatically download the latest version of our app player.

Downloading and installing BlueStacks has never been as easy as with BlueStacks 4. All it takes is a few clicks, and you’re set. Hopefully, this guide will have helped in showing you how to get started with BlueStacks and enjoy your favorite mobile games on PC.
