Are you looking to install an APK on your Mi Box? It’s easy to do, and in this tutorial, we’ll show you how.

What is an APK?

An APK is a file format used by the Android operating system for installing applications. It’s similar to a .exe file on Windows or a .dmg file on macOS. You can download APK files from various sources, but it’s important to be cautious and only download from trusted sites.

Step 1: Enable Unknown Sources

Before you can install an APK on your Mi Box, you need to enable Unknown Sources. This option allows you to install apps from sources other than the Google Play Store.

Here’s how to enable Unknown Sources:

  • Go to “Settings” on your Mi Box home screen.
  • Select “Device Preferences.”
  • Select “Security & restrictions.”
  • Toggle on the “Unknown Sources” option.

Step 2: Download the APK File

Now that you’ve enabled Unknown Sources, you can download the APK file onto your Mi Box. There are many websites that offer APK downloads; however, not all of them are trustworthy. To avoid any potential security risks, we recommend downloading from a reputable source like the Google Play Store or Amazon Appstore.

Step 3: Install the APK File

Once you’ve downloaded the APK file onto your Mi Box, it’s time to install it.

Here’s how:

  • Open the “File Manager” app on your Mi Box home screen.
  • Navigate to the folder where you saved the downloaded APK file.
  • Select the APK file.
  • A message will appear asking if you want to install the app. Select “Install.”
  • The installation process will begin, and once it’s complete, you can launch the app from your Mi Box home screen.


Installing an APK on your Mi Box is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. Just remember to enable Unknown Sources before downloading and installing any APK files. And always be cautious when downloading from third-party sources.
