Since its release in 2013, GTA 5 has undeniably become one of the most popular titles from the Grand Theft Auto franchise. The latest installment has been a grand success, clocking huge numbers. The game is only available on consoles and PCs but not on smartphones.

The closest way of experiencing the game on Android and iOS devices is by streaming/mirroring it from PC (Steam Link) or PS4 (PS Remote Play).

Note: These applications merely mirror screen and hence require a high-speed internet connection for doing the same.
