Must log in to your Google account to use Bluestacks. For syncing capabilities, you must purchase a subscription; monthly for $4.00 per month or annually for $40.00 per year.
With the subscription, you are given access to a premium priority support channel to report problems and receive resolutions. Premium support requests are processed with a higher priority than routine requests.
Subscribing to a premium subscription disables advertisements of sponsored apps on BlueStacks. The elimination of advertisements offers a secondary benefit of reducing network bandwidth, CPU, memory, and space consumption.
One premium subscription can be used on multiple PCs using the same account credentials with which the subscription was purchased. However, this is limited to using premium on a maximum of five systems, and exceeding this limit might incur additional charges on your account.
The Mac version is still back at version 4.x.
