Battlegrounds Mobile India has seen tremendous progress, and the community is delighted with the results. The Early Access version of the game is available on the Google Play Store and can be accessed by those who have registered for the Beta Program, which is now open for everyone.
Many players are also wondering if they can enjoy the new region-specific variant of the game on their PCs via applications like emulators. This article takes a look at whether BGMI can be played on Gameloop or other emulators.

The same message was conveyed by ToRoid, the Server Manager of Battlegrounds Mobile India’s discord server:
"These issues occur when the player is trying to the access the game from countries outside of India, trying to play the game on unsupported devices (emulators) or due to poorly configured local network.”
