I know all of my gamer buddies have been eagerly waiting for Battlegrounds Mobile India. The game was listed on Google Play too and it is finally live today. Yes, the wait is over and you can download and install Battlegrounds Mobile India.
Now if you are wanting to get your hand on the game, I got you covered. In this article, I am going to show you how to download and install Battlegrounds Mobile India.
You can download it from Google Play Store and if that doesn’t work for you, I have also included the APK + OBB file. So go ahead and have fun!
Download and Install Battlegrounds Mobile India
Method 1: By Joining the Beta Program
Battlegrounds Mobile India(BGMI) is live on the Google Play Store. However, you will have to become a beta tester to download and install Battlegrounds India from Play Store officially. Here is how you can do that:
Step 1: Click on the link below to join the beta testing for BGMI.
Step 2: Make sure to use the same account for beta testing that you use on Google Play Store.
That’s pretty much it. Once you join the beta testing for BGMI, you will be able to install it on your smartphone. All you have to do is just install BGMI beta and play it.
Note: Because of the popularity of the game, the beta testing slots are already full. However, Krafton will be adding more beta slots at regular intervals. Make sure to keep an eye on the beta testing program.
Method 2: Using APK+OBB Files
Now that the beta program is full it is not very reliable to download and install Battleground Mobile India from Play Store itself. However, this should not be a cause of disappointment for our visitors. We have provided the APK+OBB files so that you can enjoy the game right away. Here is how to install BGMI using APK and OBB files:
Step 1: Click on the link given above to download the APK and OBB files for BGMI.
You will need 700MB to download the game. The game will take around 0.96GB of your storage. Then you can download low-quality or high-quality texture packs, maps, and other files based on your phone’s configuration.
Step 2: Now extract the ZIP files using the file manager of your choice.
Step 3: Now install the Battlegrounds Mobile India APK. Make sure that you do not open the game right away. Just tap on ‘Done’.
Step 4: In the extracted folder, you will find the obb file. Move the obb file to the following path: /Android/obb.
If you do not see an obb folder in the Android folder, just create one with the name “obb” and then paste the file inside the folder.
Step 5: It is important to remember that you must paste the obb file inside the folder named “com.pubg.imobile”. Inside the obb folder create a folder with the name: “com.pubg.imobile”.
Step 6: Finally paste the obb file here. Your final path for the obb file should look like: “Android/obb/com.pubg.imobile/main.15255.com.pubg.imobile.obb”
Note: The obb file should be “main.15255.com.pubg.imobile.obb” and do not rename the file if the file name is different before moving it to the obb folder. This will make sure that you won’t get the “Download failed because you may not have purchased this app” error while installing the Battleground Mobile India game on your smartphone.
Step 7: Before you go on to launch the game, just long-press on the game icon and then tap on ‘App info’.
Step 8: Now tap on ‘Permissions’.
Step 9: Grant all the permissions that are required for the game.
Step 10: Go back and now tap on the game icon. Just wait patiently as it might take a while for the game to start.
Step 11: After the process is completed you shall see a pop-up reading “Update finished. Please restart the game to see new content”. Just tap on OK.
That’s it and you can now start playing Battlegrounds Mobile India. I will also be providing a detailed guide very soon that will help you to transfer your data from PUBG Mobile to BGMI.
So that was all about how to download and install Battlegrounds Mobile India. Just follow all the steps correctly and you will be able to play BGMI right away. In case of any difficulty, feel free to reach out to us.
