What is the APK and how to install it

Apr 21st 2020 at 5:00 AM

If you have an Android phone you might have heard of an APK file in several places, and might be wondering "what exactly is an APK file?" Understanding this is very important if you want to download the application. Here you will learn what APK files are, how to download them, and how to install them.

Just as a Windows PC system uses an exe file to install software, Android does the same thing. An APK file is a file format used to install software (usually games or applications) from the Android operating system.

Searching for and downloading APK files allows you to access applications that have been leaked ahead of their official release. (You can also download applications that have been banned, though we won't recommend it.) Android's new APK file often leaks, giving you early access to all the exciting new features that won't be available to you.

How to Install .apk to your Android
There are many sources of APK files on the web, but be sure to choose a site that you trust. Some APK files may contain malicious software (malware) that can jeopardize the security of your cellphone, so it is best to be careful before downloading or installing any application from outside the Play Store (and even in your Play Store it's not really safe! ). In general, APK files found on sites like XDA are safe sites to download android applications from elsewhere, so be sure to read reviews from several users there before downloading and installing them.

First, you must find the APK file you want. Search online for APK files and download them to locations that are easy to find on your computer (such as a desktop). Before the application is installed on Android, you need to ensure that third-party applications are allowed on your Android device. Go to Menu> Settings> Security> and check the "Unknown Sources" to allow your phone to install applications from sources other than the Google Play Store. If you like it, you can also download applications like ES File Explorer so you can easily find files on your Android device.

After downloading the file on a computer, connect your Android device to the PC / Computer. Then select "media device" on Android. Then copy the downloaded android file .apk from the computer to the Android cellphone.
The next step is to find the file that was copied to the android earlier, then click and select install


Installing the APK file from your browser

You can also install an APK file from your Android HP browser or Android tablet. Just open the browser, find the APK file you want to download. Once downloaded, open the folder where the apk file is saved then click on the APK file and press "yes" when prompted. This application will start installing on your device. Simple isn't it.
