There are plenty of other ways to get apps from outside of Google Play. Here is how to install apps from APKs.
There are two ways to install third-party apps without the Google Play Store. The first is through third-party app stores like F-Droid, Amazon’s App Store, and others. The second method is finding APKs from websites and manually installing them. We will go over both methods in this tutorial.
- Download the APK you want to install.
- You can either navigate to your Download folder using a file browser app or simply begin the install by clicking on the completed download in your mobile browser.
- Android will ask you to grant permission to either the file browser or your web browser to install the app. Grant the permission and it should bounce you back to the installation screen. If not, navigate back to your Download folder after granting the permission to try again.
- The app should be safely installed.
