If you have tried to install the Stremio app for Android during this past week, you have probably noticed that our app is not listed on the Google Play Store. The app has been temporarily removed, however this doesn’t mean that you can’t get it on an Android device. There is an alternative way you can do this!

This installation will require you to perform a few additional steps but don’t worry – it’s actually quite easy. To make things even easier, we have described the steps to follow in this blog post, just keep reading!

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:

Install the Stremio Android APK

Step 2: Download the Stremio installation (APK) file

Open www.strem.io from an android device and click on the button that says “Download for Android”, here is what it looks like:

Install the Stremio Android APK

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.

Sync your add-ons

Some of our users have complained that they can’t install some add-ons via the Android app. If you face this issue, simply get the add-on through our desktop applications – the desktop and Android apps are synced automatically so this should solve it.

What is an APK

The abbreviation “APK” stands for “Android package” – a file format used for installing software on Android devices (an .exe file for Android, if you wish).

How do you select no ads or ads nothing will click

Zohra Boelhouwers · February 6, 2018 at 9:05 pm

I don’t know where else to ask this question, there seems to be no forum for stremio so i will ask it here.

I installed stremio on my ipad and also all the necessary addons. When i try to watch a movie and click on of the available links, it says ‘Stream nit available on this platform’

Is there a way to make it work on my ipad because i really want to watch movies and series from my ipad, but it’s totally pointless to have Stremio on my ipad if the streams are not working on my ipad.

Can anyone please help me out here?

Thank you so much 😊
