How to Install Old Version Android Apps


App updates often bring good changes, which can be New feature, new interface, fixes, or any other thing. Updates are meant to improve the overall experience on the app. But what if you don’t like the latest updates for your favorite apps? What if the latest update removes familiar features that you want to use?

MX Player App as an example, it previously supported all audio and video formats. But then with the new update it no longer supports the AC3 format, which is popular on today’s videos because of some intellectual property copyright legal issues. Now, MX Player does not support AC3 format. For this reason, a lot of my friends have not upgraded the app and those who have upgraded it have now downgraded. If you are feeling like downgrading or installing an old version of an application then you must know that it cannot be done using the marketplace. Google Play Store app.

Here’s how to do so.


To install an older version of an app, you will need to use an APK Mirror website. It is owned by Android Police and here they upload the Latest APKs of all the earliest applications. With APK Mirror it gives you the latest APK files.

APK Mirror stores all the APK files of an app – both old and new. In fact, in the above screenshots you can see that they have an apk of Z Launcher from June. You can find the oldest apk there.

To install apps from APK Mirror, just visit the website from the browser, search for the app, install the versions you want.

Before doing so, make sure you have enabled “Unknown resources” in the settings menu. Next Settings -> Security -> Unknown sources. Enable it and you can continue to install the APK file.


You can be sure that all APKs are working, safe, and virus free. Under an app’s download button, you’ll see a statement that says “Safe to install“. This means that the apk you want to download is safe and verified by the official developer.

So it’s the easiest way to install an old version of your favorite app. Simply go to the website and install the APK, easy.
