  1. I found Genymotion is working on apple silicon mac since months ago. It uses QEMU and supports only Android 11, but it’s working. Though maybe you will think it’s not for “gaming”, but you can play games on it if you like.

    • Currently, no Android Emulator is not available for playing Android games.
      You can try Bluestacks X and play Android games on Cloud.
      To run apps, try Android Studio.

  2. THIS ARTICLE CONTRADICTS ITSELF OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

    Either you can or you can’t. Yet, you claim one, then the other, the the first one again, then the other again. You seem to have a problem making up your mind if it is possible or not.

    • You can play Android games on M1 Mac via Bluestacks X. And run apps with Android Studio. The Android Emulator for playing Android games is not available, though.
