Download BGMI 1.6 APK (Latest Version)

With all these new features, downloading the latest version of PUBG Mobile India is an absolute must! Plus, you’ll need to download the APK and OBB files to be able to play the latest version of the game. Here’s how you can get the game up and running on your Android device.

The APK file is about 92 MB while the OBB file comes in at 150 MB. However, you’ll need a total space of about 700 MB before you can get the game up and running. So, make sure you have enough space before you go ahead and install the game.

After you’ve gotten both these files downloaded, here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Tap on the APK file and hit Install. If the game does not end up installing, you’ll need to allow your device to install applications from unknown sources. Here’s how you can do so:
    • Head on to Settings > Safety and Privacy > Install Applications From Unknown Sources
  2. After the APK is up and running, head on to the following file path:
    • Android > OBB > com.pubg.imobile
  3. Now, copy the OBB file to the same desitnation. Once you’ve done so, you can delete the APK file.
  4. Open the game and select the resource pack you wish to download. You will need moe than 1 GB of storage to download the High Res texture pack.
