BlueStacks version 5.1.0

With this version of BlueStacks 5, you can do a lot more than you could with earlier versions. Take a look below to get started with everything that's new and improved.

1. You can now coordinate gameplay across multiple BlueStacks 5 instances using "Sync Operations". You can automatically replay gameplay, touch and keystroke/typing actions from your primary instance on other active instances of BlueStacks 5 you have selected using "Sync Operations".  

2. You can always keep the BlueStacks 5 window above all other applications running on Windows using  "Pin to top". This allows you to play games on BlueStacks 5 and multi-task on other activities such as watching videos side-by-side, without having to switch between tabs.

This lets you be aware of everything happening inside your game, even while performing other activities. For example, if your village in Rise of Kingdoms is attacked while you're watching a video, you will see it immediately and you can quickly fight off the enemy. 

3. Now, you can access all the tools from the Side toolbar and more, using shortcut keys to:

  • Enter or exit fullscreen.
  • Access the Settings menu.
  • Increase/Decrease the volume.
  • And do much more!


You can view and edit all these shortcuts keys from the "Shortcuts" tab in the Settings menu. However, if you just wish to see the shortcuts for the tools in the Side Toolbar, you can simply hover your cursor over them. 

4. You can now have desktop shortcuts for all apps installed on BlueStacks 5 or on any of your preferred instances. You can even recreate the shortcuts that you may have deleted for any of your apps.


5. On your Ultrawide resolution monitor, enjoy an increased field of view (FOV) in different games using BlueStacks 5. You can select this resolution to:

  • Make BlueStacks 5 fit perfectly on top of 21:9 ultrawide monitors. 
  • Enjoy an increased field of view (FOV) in different games. For example, in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, this will allow you to see your enemies earlier and quickly anticipate their attacks, giving you more control over team fights.


If you face any issue with the key controls for an app while on ultrawide resolution, you can simply edit or make new key controls using the Controls Editor.

6. You will now experience an even faster launch time for games such as Free Fire and Cookie Run: Kingdom. Your CPU usage for games like Cookie Run: Kingdom will now also be further reduced, thanks to several enhancements that improve the overall performance of BlueStacks 5. 


These performance enhancements have also significantly increased the benchmarking score for BlueStacks 5 using Geekbench.

7. You can now "Shake" BlueStacks 5 from the Side toolbar for performing different in-game actions that require you to shake your device. For example in games like War and Order, you can now use the "Shake" feature to collect different resources.


8. Choose from two different styles available for the mouse cursor in BlueStacks 5. Either, select the classic white cursor or the zippy new orange cursor!
