All You Need To Know About An Apk File And What Does It Do


We have explained for you what APK files used on Android phones do and how they can be installed.

If you have an android smartphone or tablet, you have definitely heard of the term APK file.

If you don't want to use the most up-to-date versions of the apps and keep your app experience connected only to the Google Play Store, it's good to know what APK files do.

WHAT IS APK FILE
Android Package Kit (APK) is the package file format used by the Android operating system for the distribution and installation of mobile applications.

Just as if Windows files are used to install software on Windows computers, the .apk file extension is also used in the android operating system.

When you download any application from the Google Play Store, you actually install that application on your phone as .apk. However, since Google does these processes automatically, the apk extension will never appear before you.
WHAT DOES APK FILES DO?
As we mentioned above, all of the APK files are actually android apps and you can already download these apps through the Google Play Store.

However, if the new version of many applications is leaked before it is released on the Play Store and you download and install the APK file of this application via the internet, you will be the first to try the new features of the application.

For example, a new feature coming to WhatsApp is usually tested in WhatsApp Beta before it is available to all users. If you download and install the WhatsApp Beta APK file from the internet, you will try these features first.

Apart from that, some games and applications are not published in all countries. However, you can install the application's APK file on your phone and still use it even if the application is not published in our country.

WHAT TO NOTE WHILE DOWNLOADING THE APK
APK files that can be downloaded from the internet do not go through Google's malware checks. Therefore, you need to be careful which APK file you have downloaded.

Some APK services also allow you to download pirated apps. However, it is definitely useful to stay away from such applications.
