An emulator is basically a software that allows programs to run on a different platform from which they were created.For example, the most common is to download emulators to run games or “virtual machine” to test other operating systems.
The advantage of these emulators, if the VMs ,our operating system is left intact and not changed in any way. For some users it is much easier to prove, for example, a new distribution of Linux in a virtual machine to partition the hard drive, the risk that something might go wrong during the installation process and our host operating system (Windows ) is compromised.
Emulators not only emulate specific hardware architecture but also the CPU, memory and input and output devices.
Andyroid better known as Andy is a full emulator available for Windows and Mac OS that lets you open your favorite games installed on your Android device directly on the desktop.Currently Andy runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean but the developers hope to update their program with each new version of Android.

This synchronization means that you can use your phone as a remote control when you open a game (for that you first install Andy Remote Control). Also lets you download applications directly from any desktop browser to your Android device.You can send WhatsApp messages from your PC and store files that no longer fit in the memory of your phone.
Downloading Andy is done completely free from their site and once installed you will be prompted to sign in with your Google Account. Through 1ClickSync you can sync all your apps. Andy is also available in over 40 different languages.
