How to Install Google Chrome Extensions on Android

For many users, Extensions are the most important thing for a web browser. Google Chrome users have a long list of extensions they love to use on desktop. However, there is no support for Chrome Extensions on Android devices whose mobile experience is not as good as desktop. For a long time, the user community has been asking for extension support on Android, but to no avail. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to use Chrome extensions on your Android device. Actually there is a way and it works really well. So, if you want to use Google Chrome extensions on your Android device, here is how to install Chrome extensions on Android.

Install Chrome Extensions on Android

Before we start, note that Chrome on Android does not support the extension. For this to work, We will use a third-party browser called “Kiwi browser”. The Kiwi browser is based on the Chromium open source project and uses the Blink rendering engine that also powers Google Chrome. Therefore, it looks and works very similar to Google Chrome. Also, it is an open source browser and does not have any background tracking.

1. Download the Kiwi browser APK from here and install it. You may receive a warning because you sideloaded a third-party app. Just Open Settings and tap “Allow from this source”.

2. After that open the browser and search for the extension you want to install just like you do on your desktop. Tap on “Add to Chrome” and then tap OK. The extension will now be installed.
