Do you know that you can install Chrome extensions on your Android device? If you have been wondering how, then this post is for you. While both Google Chrome and Android were created by Google, unfortunately, Chrome extensions are not compatible with Androids’ Chrome browser. Shocking as it may sound, this is the truth. In this post, I am going to show you a trick that can be used to achieve this. I am going to keep this post as short as possible and go straight to the point. I would be boring you with too many words, so without wasting your time, let’s go.
Installing Chrome Extensions on Android
The best and only way to install any chrome extension on Android, is by making use of other browsers. There are many browsers out there you can use and some of these, include Brave Browser for Android, Kiwi Browser for Android, Firefox, Bromite and a host of others. For the sake of this post, we shall be making use of the Yandex Browser for Android.
Yandex is a very popular browser and it is available for download on Google Play Store. Aside been available on Play Store, the Russian based search engine browser offers full support of the Chrome Web Store. To be able to access the Chrome Web Store via Yandex, first you need to download and install the app on your Android device.
After downloading and installing the app on your device, go to your address link and type in this URL “chrome.google.com/webstore“. When the page opens, simply tap the “Search bar” and type the extension you’d like to add. Next is to tap on “Install” in the upper right-hand corner. After doing this, your extension will be ready for use.
