The hybrid cloud technology that powers BlueStacks X was developed in collaboration with BlueStacks’ sister company, now.gg. The company claims that by using the technology, it can “offload parts of compute and graphics rendering to the endpoints,” lowering cloud costs and providing users with a free service supported by ads.
CEO Rosen Sharma had this to say about BlueStacks X: “The lifetime downloads of BlueStacks App Player recently surpassed 1 billion. For us, BlueStacks X is a natural next step. Hybrid cloud is a significant technological advancement that makes the service economically viable to launch.”
