I am working on android automation testing. I need to install some .apk files in an emulator. So I have a few questions like:

  1. Where should I get the .apk file?
  2. How do I install the .apk file?

    you should get APKs from your developers , to install APK , just drag it to emulator. Sep 15, 2015 at 9:26
  • I don't think the question is related in any way to SQA. This should be asked on Stack Overflow. Sep 15, 2015 at 9:37
  • @ Helping Hands Thank you. But is there any way to get few apk's from any other source?

You can get apk using chrome plugin APK Downloader. To install apk use ADB command: adb install path_to_apk_file


Simplest way to install any app on emulator:

  • Drag and drop your .apk file on your emulator.
  • It will install and restart emulator itself

Your app will be ready to use !
