What is sideloading? [Android A to Z]

Sideloading is a term you see from time to time while talking about Android applications, and it’s simple to explain. It means installing applications without using Google Play to do it.

Android isn’t like iOS and was built from the ground up to allow for applications to be installed on the phone from any source. It has nothing to do with root or piracy (unless you’re sideloading apps without paying for them). Sideloading is simply another way to install an app from its package files.

An App Bundle contains the Android Package and resources like languages ​​and support for other architecture.
