Install Google Chrome Extensions on Android Browser

Install Google Chrome Extension on Android Browser with this simple method and enjoy the web with full utility support. Download the Add-on on the Browser and make full out of the browser.

Google Chrome is worlds most popular browser and Chrome Web Store is one of the most popular browser extension and utility store. You will find Chrome Extension usage on a large scale when it comes to the Desktop browsers but Google doesn’t have any such auxiliary support for Chrome Web Store for its Android Browser. And there seems no any plan from the Google to roll out any such support in future.

But today I will tell a very simple and reliable method to install Chrome Extensions on Android Browser without any root or tweak. Just with the help of a different browser which accepts add-on installation from Chrome Store. The browser may not support all the Chrome extensions which is very much obvious due to different natures of Desktop and Mobile phone web.

So, below are the steps by which you can install Chrome Web Extensions on your Android and enjoy the web experience to the fullest.

Install Chrome Extension on Android Browser

Here are the simple steps to download and install Chrome Extensions on Android Browser.

Step 1. Download and Install Yandex Browser from Google Play Store.

Yandex Browser

Step 2. Open chrome.google.com/webstore in the URL box.

You can check for the extensions under the settings of the browser.

What is Yandex Browser?

Yandex Browser is one of the most popular web browsers on Android with over 50 Million downloads. is a freeware web browser developed by the Russian web search corporation Yandex that uses the Google’s Blinkweb browser engine and is based on the Chromium open source project.

The browser checks WebPage security with the Yandex security system and checks downloaded files with Kaspersky anti-virus. The browser also uses Opera Software’s Turbo technology to speed web browsing on slow connections.

The Yandex has a turbo mode in case of slow internet speed, inbuilt invasive Ad Blocker, web extension support and much more. The Web Tool has its own store in case if you wish to install any plugin on your Android Browser.

Here are the Chrome Extensions which are supported by Yandex Browser – web.chrome.com/feature/android

What if Yandex Browser Doesn’t Support any Extension?

As I said above, some extension may have limitations due to smartphone web limits. If the extension is not supported by Browser then I recommend you to download any other extension of the same nature.

The Yandex Browser also has its own plugin add-on store in case the Chrome Web Store extension doesn’t support the Browser.

Chrome Extensions are the potential source of utility available for users which can make the work pretty much easy, the chrome extensions can also be installed on the Mozilla Firefox and the steps are briefed below.

Adding Chrome Extensions on Firefox Browser

You can alternately also install Chrome Extension on Mozilla browser using a Firefox Addon.

  • Download Mozilla Firefox or Firefox Nightly Browser from Play Store.
  • Here first request the Desktop View.
  • Now under Tools, click the option “Browse for All Add-ons”. A new Firefox Addon Tab will open.
  • Search for Chrome Store Foxified and enable the plugin.
  • Now go to the Chrome Web Store and search for your favourite extensions.
  • You will see a message Add to Firefox. Just install the Chrome extension on Firefox Browser for Android. Done!

Using Mozilla to install Chrome Plugins may be a little complicated due to many incompatibilities and speed issues. It is, therefore, better to go with Yandex Browser for its simple and convenient installation. But the Firefox browser may support more Chrome extension on Android. Therefore I recommend you to try both the Browsers to test which one works well.

Some Useful Plugin Extensions

  • Data Saver – This nature of extensions help to save the internet bandwidth.
  • Ad blocker – Most popular types of extensions to block Ads.
  • Password Manager – Manage the Password and store the password info for various websites.
  • VPN – Virtual Private Network can be used to deceive the location of your device.

Conclusion: With Yandex Browser, you can download and install the Google Chrome Extension on your Android phone and enjoy the web to the fullest. The Chrome Web Store Extensions can be downloaded on Yandex and make the web experience more productive.

      They Chrome extension work good. Some extensions may not work due to Smartphone limitations. Try any other alternative of the same nature.

        Even if it tell that it doesn’t support some extension, then it can be also installed by manual with developer mode

    Get your facts right. It is not possible to add Chrome extensions to Yandex. Can’t add anything unless signed-in, and when signed-in it simply adds an extension to desktop (not ‘Add to Chrome’) .

    • Nikhil says:

      I just checked the same and the extensions are being installed properly on the browser. Just go to the menu option and check for installed extensions. The issue may be with few extensions but you can install chrome extensions on Yandex without any issues.
