APK link, file size, system requirements, etc. in 2022

PUBG Mobile Lite is among the most popular Battle Royale shooter games available for smartphones. The launch of the game was solely focused on competing with Garena Free Fire and providing a PUBG Mobile-like alternative to low-end Android users. Thus, the developers have somewhat managed to do this.

PUBG Mobile Lite has over 100 million installs on Google Play Store and is only available for AOS devices. So, Google Play Store is the preferred way to install the Lite variant of PUBG Mobile. However, users can still use other legitimate ways to install the game, such as downloading the APK file.

The Lite variant of PUBG Mobile is yet to receive its long-awaited 0.23.0 update which is expected to arrive in the next few days. In the meantime, players can follow the steps below to download the current version:

Step 1: Open the game’s official site using the link here.

2nd step: Tap the “APK Download” tab shown on the homepage and the download will start.

Step 3: Players will need to install the APK file after the download is complete. They can enable the “Install from unknown resources” setting to enable installation.

To note: A parse error occurs when installing an APK file on rare occasions. Users may try to install the file multiple times, and if it still fails, they have to re-download it while deleting the old APK.

Step 4: Gamers need to open and install the required update packages which are 356MB in size. Once done, they can relaunch the app and enjoy the game content without much hassle.

TapTap is another method for users to download and install APK files for almost any mobile game in the world. So, users can download the TapTap app and use it as Play Store to locate and download the global version of the Lite variant of PUBG Mobile.

To note: PUBG Mobile Lite has been banned in India since September 2020. Thus, gamers should refrain from downloading it.
