Streaming Content Made Easy with Mobdro

According to our Mobdro review, the app does not offer its own content to the users. Mobdro collects free video content from all around the web. The content of Mobdro app has two types; the first type of content comes from free sources. These free sources are nature, YouTube and webcams. Users stream the second type of content from various TV channels like BBC News, CNN, and Cartoon Network.

Mobdro Review – Live Streaming Made Easy & Free The first category of the app does not look quite appealing. YouTube is an undisputed media-streaming giant; hence, sometimes the app looks like a third party YouTube client. The app should have worked like an aggregator of tons of rich content sources. Sadly, this is not the case.

Conversely, the other content category offers numerous streaming of TV channels, movies, and much more.

  • Annoying ads
  • Limited compatibility with major platforms except Android
  • Episode selection feature is unavailable
  • Chromecast compatibility is only offered in premium version


Platform Support of Mobdro

The official website of the app clearly states that the app is only compatible with Android devices only. The app does not support major platforms like Windows, Mac and iOS. However, the app supports Chromecast, but does not support Roku yet.

The Mobdro app will detect the Chromecast device itself. Hence, the app will show an icon at the top of navigation bar. You are just one tap away from experiencing video streaming on the big screen. However, do note that Mobdro only supports Chromecast device if you have subscribed to the premium version. This was a slight downside to the app.

After downloading the freemium version, you still have a chance to subscriber for premium version. You just need to tap the Mobdro logo that is available on the upper left corner within the app. After tapping the Mobdro logo, select the option “Go Premium”.

Is Mobdro App safe to use?

Yes, the Mobdro app is safe to use, but always make sure that you are downloading the app from its official website. The app is not available on Google Play Store. Hence, this scenario creates a doubt in the minds of users. However, you can still use it without facing any issue. Remember, you should not download the app from unofficial websites like mirrors as it could result in viruses and malwares attacking your Android device.

Is Mobdro App Legal?

The official website clearly states that the users should use the app at their own risk. The app does not take any responsibility for content and location of streams. Furthermore, the Mobdro app is not liable for any damages caused by the service. These damages could be failure in the display of content, viruses, connection errors and threat to your device.

The Mobdro app can use pirated sources to offer its video streaming service. Therefore, you may face legal consequences. Hence, the subscribers should use the app solely at their own risk. One way of ensuring that your privacy is never compromised is by using a VPN service.

Mobdro Review on Reddit

Our Mobdro review suggests that the app has an active presence on Reddit. Nevertheless, you will receive mixed responses from the users who like the app and those who do not like the app.


The other response of a user indicates that the app works absolutely fine on Android device.


Another response from the satisfied subscriber disclosed the other side of the story. The user recommends that you will not face any hassle if you download the app from the official Mobdro website.

Furthermore, the app may use pirated sources to offer video streaming of channels and movies. It totally depends on the users how much they care about their security and privacy.

Based on the review, the future of Mobdro app looks uncertain. YouTube is another video streaming giant that offers millions of videos free to its users. The users can visit YouTube if they want to stream their favorite videos. Similarly, subscribers can also pay in exchange of viewing high quality video streaming service like Netflix, Hulu, Pandora and BBC iPlayer.

The question remains the same. Is the app legal or safe enough to use? Being a user, you must know the answer of these questions in detail. Otherwise, you might find yourself in hot waters if you do not discover the safe way of streaming videos online.
