Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) is the successor to PUBG Mobile in India and was launched in July last year. The multiplayer game was listed on both the Google Play Store and the Apple Play Store. However, there was no other way to download the game without any of these options. Now, BGMI has introduced the third way to download it.
BGMI recently introduced a new way in which players can now download games from the BGMI website itself. With the latest update, users can directly click on the APK download button on the website to install the game.
BGMI maker Crafton claims that the game is now not only easier to download but also much lighter. While the download size on the Play Store is around 860 MB, the file size on the website is 600 MB. This can help reduce the overall space occupied by the game.
What if you already have a version of BGMI downloaded on the phone? Those playing the previous version, they can install the latest version over the existing game, and the data will be automatically updated to the latest version.
Here are the steps to download the APK file:
- Click on ‘Download BGMI APK File’ from the website
-Click on Install and open it
Now the OBB file will be downloaded
-After completing the update, restart your game
Comment: Crafton and BGMI are prominent names but there are some malicious apps that trick the user to download them outside of the application store. Google Play Store and Apple App Store have several security checks and balances to keep malware and other such things out of applications.
BGMI recently completed its first year in India. The brand celebrated the anniversary by releasing a new BGMI V2.1 update along with special events.
