How to create a Nougat 32-bit instance on BlueStacks 5

How can I do this?

Certain games that require a specific Android version to run can be played by creating its specific instance through the Multi-instance Manager. You can create a BlueStacks 5 Nougat 32-bit instance by the following the steps given below. 

1. Launch BlueStacks 5 and click on the Multi-instance Manager icon on the Side toolbar.


2. BlueStacks Multi-instance Manager will open on your screen. Then follow the steps given below:

  • Click on "Instance" and then select "Fresh instance"
  • From the dropdown menu select "Nougat 32-bit" and then, click on "Next"

NOTE: If you've selected the Nougat 32-bit Android version for the first time, a message will appear asking you to download additional files associated with it.


3. Now, you will have to customize the instance as per your preference by specifying the following:

  • CPU cores: Specify the number of CPU cores you wish to assign for this instance.
  • Memory allocation: Assign the amount of RAM for this instance.
  • Resolution: Select the resolution for your instance here.
  • ABI setting: Choose the desired ABI libraries for your instance.
  • Performance mode: Select a suitable performance mode to experience optimum performance.
  • DPI: Allot a DPI from 160, 240 and 320.
  • Instance count: You can create one or more instances with the same settings.


4. Click on "Download" to get the additional files for the selected Android version.


NOTE: If you've created an Android Nougat 32-bit instance in the past, you will see a "Create" button instead of "Download". 

5. This instance will now appear in the Multi-instance Manager wherein you can also see the download progress. Once the download process is complete, click on "Start" as shown below.


6. A new instance of BlueStacks will launch. Next, login to the Play Store and install the game of your choice on this instance.
