Can I play Call of Duty: Mobile on PC?
Gameloop is the place to go for this and it couldn’t be simpler. There’s a huge ‘download’ button on the site if you navigate to the link, and from there you just need to click through to COD: Mobile and run it from there.
The controls take a while to get the hang of, but the Gameloop defaults do a really good job of working like a normal FPS. You'll be matched up against other emulator players though, so don't think you're getting too much of an unfair advantage.
The tutorial is a bit janky, but if you get through that and place the Secondary Keys over the screen’s overlays, Gameloop’s settings match up pretty evenly with other first-person shooters on PC.

You’ll want to make sure your phone is updated to the latest version of iOS, or at least a version later than 9.0. Also, you’re out of luck if you use an iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3 or iPod Touch, so don’t go to the trouble of the long download time without checking if you can actually run the game.

How to download COD: Mobile on Android
Again, double check that your device will be able to run Call of Duty: Mobile. The game requires at least 2GB of RAM to run, and you should ensure you have Android OS 5.1 or later installed. Then, simply navigate to the Google Play Store Page and hit the install button.
You can press install on the web store on your desktop too, and if you’ve linked your Google account to both your computer and phone, it’ll automatically download to your device.
Can I download the Call of Duty: Mobile APK file?
While the Call of Duty: Mobile APK file is available, it isn't formally endorsed by the developers and publishers of the game. We wouldn't recommend downloading it, as you're putting your device at risk. Using the official App Store and Google Play store are the best ways to play COD: Mobile.
