🔯 Can I Install Google Chrome Extension On Chrome Browser Android?

No, as of now, you cannot install any Google Chrome extension to your Android device’s chrome browser at all. It is only available for your PC. However, that is not to say that it will never be possible for you to use Google Chrome extensions on your Android; it simply means that the developers haven’t released such a thing yet, and it is likely that it’s in development.
