How to install APK on your Android (Nokia) smartphone

.APK files are files that are used to install both systems as well as third-party apps on Android. Most of the times we just install or update an app directly from Google Play Store. But in case you haven’t received an update to a particular app or for some reason can’t install a particular app from Play Store, APK files come as the savior.
