Processing a PDF file on your mobile device can be tricky at times. The good news is that opening a PDF is quite easy. Your Android device can probably already do this, but if not, we’ll share some options.
First, chances are you already have an app on your Android device that allows you to open PDFs. Google Drive can do it, but so can ebook readers, such as the Kindle app.
Just try this to find out if you have an app that can open PDFs. Navigate to File Manager on your Android device and find a PDF file. All apps that can open PDFs appear as choices.

Just select one of the apps and the PDF will open.
Again, if you don’t already have an app that can open PDFs, there are several to choose from. The simplest is Google PDF Viewer. It’s not really an app in the traditional sense, as you can’t open it directly. However, it appears as an option when you try to open a PDF.
Files by Google is another option. This app is a full file manager with the built-in ability to open PDF files. Once you install it on your device, it will also show up as an option when you try to open a PDF.
Note that these apps only allow you to view PDFs. If you need a more powerful PDF tool, you will need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader for Android or similar.
