If you are looking for the best free videos to play on your smartphone or tablet, Mobdro APK is no longer the app you need. There was a day, when this Android app was constantly looking for the most curious, surprising and/or funny content for the user to enjoy, but this is no longer the case. You can still download Mobdro Android but it isn't what it used to be.

Similar to watching TV the old-fashioned way

When it was working properly, Mobdro APK showed a list of channels in constant broadcast. These were channels, without the possibility of watching on-demand programming, organized in the following categories that now, although still accessible from the main interface of the app, are completely empty:

  • Generic channels.
  • News.
  • Shows.
  • Movies.
  • Sports.
  • Music.
  • Gaming.
  • Animals.
  • Technology.
  • Podcasts.
  • Spiritual.
  • Others.

Although there are hundreds of alternatives to watch TV online and nowadays paying for a subscription to a streaming movie and series service like Netflix or HBO is not a big outlay, many users still miss the proper functioning of Mobdro. With it, they could easily discover and find videos from anywhere in the world, subject and language, including TV channels; organize videos and filter them according to different criteria or play or share thematic channels. Today it's all history.

The premium version of Mobdro that never saw the light of day

Although you could download Mobdro Android for free until the service had legal problems, those responsible for the development of the app intended to launch a premium paid version to further improve the user experience. They did not have the opportunity and the project had to close before this option was ready. However, the improvements were to be as follows:

  • Totally ad-free for a cleaner viewing experience.
  • Ability to download streaming videos for offline playback at any time.
  • Compatibility with Chromecast to be able to play the videos on big screen.
  • Sleep timer to schedule the shutdown of the application and avoid unnecessary battery consumption.

What's new in the latest version

  • Fixes a bug that caused the player to be always on load.

Requirements and additional information:

  • The paid version extends the functions of the application.
  • Minimum operating system requirements: Android 4.2.
