How to play Grand Theft Auto 5 on Android devices with Steam Link or Xbox Games Pass


Grand Theft Auto 5 (also known as GTA V) launched in 2013 and is still among the most played games, thanks to its ever-evolving online mode called GTA Online. And while the game doesn’t have a mobile version, it’s actually possible to play on your Android phone if you want to. The game first launched on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and then made its way onto PC. It was also launched for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Now GTA 5 will also make its way to the latest generation of consoles, Xbox Series X / Series S and PlayStation 5. You can play GTA 5 on your phone by using a few different apps.

You can play GTA 5 on your Android device using Steam Link or Xbox Game Pass. Both, however, come with some prerequisites, such as possession of the game on Steam, a desktop computer, a reliable internet connection, and an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership. With that in mind, here’s how to play GTA V on your Android device.
