Among Us isn’t available for Mac but here we look at the best ways to play Among Us on a Mac.
Our recommended method is to use Parallels to run the Windows version of Among us on your Mac via the Steam store.
Parallels is the best way to run Windows on a Mac and allows you to switch between Windows and macOS instantly.
However, there are also a few other ways of playing Among Us on a Mac as we’ll show you.
What Is Among Us?
Among Us has been around since 2018 but has become an insanely popular party game over the summer as it exploded on Twitch.
Among Us is an online and party game of betrayal based in space for 4-10 players. It’s your job to find out who is the imposter in your crew and vote them out of the game.
It’s available on the Steam gaming platform for Windows, Android and iOS but unfortunately not macOS and there are no plans to release Among Us on Mac.
Here then are 3 ways to play Among Us on a Mac:
This allows you to run Windows at the same time as macOS so you can switch between the two at any time. Parallels allows you to download Among Us via the Steam store and you can read more about it in our full Parallels for Mac review.
If there are other Windows only applications or games apart from Among Us that you want to use or play, we definitely recommend installing Windows on your Mac.
Boot Camp allows you to install Windows in a partition on your hard drive.
However, this method is less convenient because you can only boot your Mac in either macOS or Windows at one time – you can’t run them both at the same time like with Parallels.
It also doesn’t work on the latest M1 Macs. However, we often recommend using Boot Camp for gamers because it dedicates all of your Mac’s resources to running games rather than trying to run macOS and Windows at the same time.
The final option to play Among Us on a Mac is to use Bluestacks.
Bluestacks is a free Android emulator that allows you to run some apps or games. However, Bluestacks will only allow you to play the Android mobile version of Among Us on your Mac.
You can’t play the full Windows version and you can’t save your progress to carry on playing in the Windows version later.
Installing Among Us via Bluestacks also requires a Google account in order to download it from the Google Play store.
