How to Change PDF Reader on Android

PDFs are one of the most popular file types for sharing documents, but not all PDF readers are created equal. If you’re not satisfied with the default PDF reader on your Android device, changing it is easy. Follow these steps to switch to a different PDF reader app:

Step 1: Find a New PDF Reader App

There are many PDF reader apps available in the Google Play Store. Some popular options include Adobe Acrobat Reader, Foxit PDF Reader, and Google PDF Viewer. Once you’ve chosen a new app, download and install it on your device.

Step 2: Set the New App as the Default PDF Reader

After installing the new PDF reader app, you’ll need to set it as the default app for opening PDFs. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Open Settings

Tap on the Settings app on your Android device.

2. Select Apps & notifications

Scroll down until you see the Apps & notifications option and tap on it.

3. Tap on Default apps

Scroll down and tap on the Default apps option.

4. Choose the new PDF reader app

Under the Opening links section, tap on the “PDFs” option and select the new PDF reader app from the list of available apps.

Step 3: Test the New PDF Reader App

With the new PDF reader app set as the default, you can now test it out by opening a PDF file. Simply tap on any PDF file on your device, and it should automatically open in the new app.

Step 4: Uninstall the Old PDF Reader App (Optional)

Now that you have a new PDF reader app set as the default, you may want to uninstall the old PDF reader app to avoid any confusion. To do this, simply go to the Apps section in Settings, find the old PDF reader app, and tap on Uninstall.
