Are you wondering how to transfer apps from your Android phone to a tablet? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step. So let’s get started and make your transition smooth and hassle-free.

Method 1: Using Google Play Store

If both your Android phone and tablet are linked to the same Google account, transferring apps becomes a breeze. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Open Google Play Store on your tablet.
  2. Tap on the menu icon (three horizontal lines) located at the top-left corner of the screen.
  3. Select “My apps & games” from the menu options.
  4. Navigate to the “Library” tab which displays all your previously downloaded apps.
  5. Locate the app you want to transfer, and tap on the install button next to it.

This will initiate the download and installation process for that app on your tablet. Repeat these steps for each app you wish to transfer.

Method 2: Using APK Files

If you have APK files of your desired apps saved on your Android phone, you can transfer them manually to your tablet. Here’s how:

  1. Connect your Android phone to a computer using a USB cable.
  2. Navigate to the folder where you have stored the APK files on your phone.
  3. Copy the APK files that you want to transfer.
  4. Disconnect your phone from the computer.
  5. Connect your tablet to the same computer using a USB cable.
  6. Navigate to a folder on your tablet where you want to save the APK files.
  7. Paste the APK files into the selected folder on your tablet.
  8. On your tablet, open a file manager app and navigate to the folder where you saved the APK files.
  9. Tap on an APK file to initiate its installation. Follow any on-screen instructions if prompted.
  10. Repeat this process for each APK file you want to transfer.


If you encounter an error during installation, make sure that your tablet allows app installations from unknown sources. You can enable this option by going to Settings > Security > Unknown sources and toggle it on.

In Conclusion

No matter which method you choose, transferring apps from your Android phone to a tablet is a straightforward process. Whether it’s using Google Play Store or manually transferring APK files, both methods are reliable and efficient.
