Install Parsec App on Android

This article covers the installation of the Parsec app on Android. Parsec on Android is experimental. It only works with select Android devices running Android 8 or newer with OpenGL ES3 or better. Although our Android app is on the Google Play Store, there are still a lot of bugs, and it may not work well or at all on your phone or tablet. We do not support hosting on Android devices.

Known issues:

  • Some controllers may not behave correctly
  • Mouse and keyboard input is still in progress and may work incorrectly in some cases
  • There are issues with Android on Chromebooks
  • Not all devices are supported
  • Some Android TV devices and older Android phones have increased latency
