QUESTION: Hello Anna,

Thank you for your reply and guidance to download WeChat for 7/8/XP.

I want to download Andy Android application to allow WeChat to work. This is all new to me. Please can you advise if the Andy Android aplication is free to download and install?

There is adware in another application called Blue Stacks which I will not use.

Kind regards,

Hello Brent,

It states on the website it is free ->

Run all your communication apps from your desktop (snapchat, Viber, whatsapp etc) ...  

Here they says Andy Android does not have adware ->

These people found that Andy Android overall was the winner ->

Hope that helps!
