If for some reason you are unable to get the Stremio app for Android straight from the Google Play Store, you can do so by installing it via the APK file.
This installation will require you to perform a few additional steps but don’t worry – it’s actually quite easy. Just follow the steps below.
Step 1: Allow the installation of 3rd party apps
To allow third party applications to be installed on your device, go to Menu >> Settings >> Security. Then activate the “Unknown sources” functionality:
Step 2: Download the Stremio installation (APK) file
Open www.stremio.com from an android device and click on the button that says “Download for Android”, here is what it looks like:
Step 3: Install the APK file
In this next step, open the file browser app on your Android device and locate the APK file on your phone or tablet. It will be named “app-armeabi-v7a-release-0.30.5-1060219.apk” (or something similar). You can also look into the “Downloads” folder of your device.
Then tap on the file and then tap on “Install”. Seconds later, all of your video content will be available in the palm of your hand.
