XAPK format files are a derivative of APK files (Android Application Package): files in which an application for Android are packaged.
The XAPK format, a new style of file that also allows you to install applications and games on Android, is not an official format like the APK is, but is widely available on the internet and Android devices.
An XAPK file is actually an APK file plus the additional OBB data required for the game or application to function properly. That is, it is a compressed file that contains the original APK plus some extra data files.
Android, by itself, is not capable of recognizing the XAPK format, therefore it cannot correctly extract the information that is inside it, and consequently, trying to directly install a file with the XAPK format will give you an error.
To use and install an XAPK file on Android you need a specialized
installer and you must also activate the unknown sources option.
Once this is done, to proceed to install this file you must download a XAPK package installer from the following providers:
Once the installer is installed, instead of using the default Android package installer, you should go to the specialized application and select the XAPK file.
The process is usually the same as usual with the difference that once you have installed the XAPK file you will have both the original APK and the OBB data already added.
It is also important to note that XAPK files are much larger than APK files, since they usually contain more information. This will also be appreciated when installing it, since the time will be longer.
It is normal that the applications that can be installed through the XAPK format are those that cannot be found in the official Google Play Store.
