That’s pretty much all you need to do right now. Simply install the beta, and you can start playing the brand new Battlegrounds Mobile India today itself!

NoteThe beta test for Battlegrounds Mobile India seems to be full at this moment. So you might not be able to join right now. But rumor has it that Krafton will add more beta slots at a regular interval, so keep an eye out as the slots fill on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Download and Install Battlegrounds Mobile India with APK + OBB Files

Since the beta test is full and you might not be able to join it now, you can try using the Battlegrounds Mobile India Early Access APK and OBB files to install the game on your smartphone. We have mirrored the APK and OBB files to our Telegram channel, and you can download them below:

  • Download the Battlegrounds Mobile India Early Access APK and OBB files from this Telegram link. Tap on the three-dot menu icon and select “Save to Downloads” on Telegram to instantly see the files in your Downloads folder.

Note: Many of you must be wondering, what is the download size of Battlegrounds Mobile India? Well, you will need up to 700MB to download the game – be it via the Telegram link or Play Store. It will take up around 0.96GB of storage space on your device. You can then download the low- or high-res texture packs, maps, and other additional files depending on your built-in storage and needs.

  • Once downloaded, open the Android file manager app of your choice and extract the ZIP files. Then, install the Battlegrounds Mobile India APK on your phone. But remember not to open the game right away. Tap on the “Done” button and move to the next step.

  • Next up, move the obb file to the /Android/obb folder on your phone. If you are unable to find an obb folder within the Android directory, you can create one manually and paste the OBB file in there.

  • Do keep in mind that you should place the Battlegrounds Mobile India OBB file insider a folder named “com.pubg.imobile”. Create the folder and paste the OBB file to this folder. The overall path should be as follows:
Android/obb/com.pubg.imobile/main.15255.com.pubg.imobile.obb

bgmi exact path

Note: Make sure the name of your OBB file is “main.15255.com.pubg.imobile.obb”. Do rename it if the file name is different, before moving it to the OBB folder. This will help eliminate the “Download failed because you may not have purchased this app” error while installing Battlegrounds Mobile India on your Android phone.

  • Before opening the game, make sure you allow required permissions from the app’s settings page. This is required because the app installation flow isn’t requesting app permissions from the user just yet. You can access the app settings page by long-pressing the app and tapping on “App Info”.

  • Launch the game from the app icon on your home screen or app drawer. It might take a few minutes for Battlegrounds Mobile India to open up after the installation, depending on your phone’s chipset. During this period, wait patiently — just like you did all these months.
