One thing that’s definitely worth noting is just how smooth the Disney Plus app is on Android. Seriously, it’s LIGHTNING quick in comparison to other streaming apps. It also has a clean and easy to navigate interface.
What Android Smartphones Are Supported on Disney Plus?
If you’re wondering if your Android device will support/run Disney Plus, you’re in luck, as the majority of commonly used Android smartphones will easily run Disney Plus. In fact, according to the Disney Plus help center, any Android device (smartphone or tablet) running OS 5.0 (Android Lollipop) or later will be able to use Disney Plus.
You’ll still need a high speed internet connection to watch Disney Plus, so don’t expect to stream Disney Plus on a 3G connection. Not sure what your device’s internet speed is? Check out speedtest.net and run it on your phone’s browser.
How Much Will Disney Plus Cost On Android Devices?
Like the majority of these types of streaming apps available on Google Play, Disney Plus will be free to download. However, you’ll need to purchase a Disney Plus subscription for either $6.99/month or $69.99/year. There’s also a Disney Plus bundle available that adds Hulu and ESPN+ for a total of $12.99/month, as well as a 7-day free trial.
After you’ve subscribed to Disney Plus, you’ll then use your credentials to log into the Disney Plus app on your Android device to start streaming.
How to Download Shows to Watch Later
One other great feature of Disney Plus is that you can download shows to watch later, so if you’re sitting at home on your wifi, you can download shows to watch when you won’t have an internet connection.
That means you can download shows right to your Android device!
To do so, browse to whatever show you want to download, and next to the Play button, you’ll find a download arrow icon. Click on that icon, and your content will begin downloading. It has a circular progress bar, so keep an eye on that before you plan to take your device away from an internet connection. Make sure it’s downloaded completely before leaving your house!
