BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India) has returned to the Google Play store for Android smartphones after being banned for security reasons.
The popular battle royale game's comeback has brought excitement and relief to millions of Indian mobile gamers.
Here is the latest development, such as the download process, server-related issues, government regulations, and the game's impact on the Indian gaming ecosystem.
Downloading BGMI on Android
To download BGMI, users cannot directly find the listing on the Google Play store.
Instead, they need to visit BGMI's official website and click the Play button, which will redirect them to the download page.
The game is free to download, offering thrilling battles and intense gameplay.
It's worth mentioning that BGMI is currently not available on the Apple App Store for iOS devices, but there are possibilities for its future release.
Some users are facing server-related issues while trying to access and play BGMI despite its return to the Google Play store.
However, it is anticipated that these problems will be resolved soon, enabling gamers to fully enjoy BGMI's immersive experience.
Krafton, the game's developers, are aware of the situation and are working to address these concerns promptly.
Government Regulations and Conditions
BGMI's comeback in India is subject to certain conditions set by the government.
Authorities have requested Krafton to implement a time limit in the game to address addiction concerns.
The user interface (UI) of BGMI is also expected to be modified to cater to Indian audiences.
Notably, even before the ban, BGMI had already been customized for Indian users, and Krafton had partnered with Microsoft Azure to ensure user data protection.
While these details have not been officially confirmed by Krafton, the company has expressed gratitude to the authorities for permitting them to resume operations in India.
