Watch Disney+ on an Android smartphone or tablet

Disney+ on Android

Disney+ is available on a very large number of platforms and it was almost obvious that Android smartphones and tablets were affected. An official application is available and we advise you to use only this one. It is accessible on the Play Store of your Android device, or by clicking directly on this link.

The application requires a device running Android 5.0 minimum.

Watch Disney+ on an iPhone or iPad

Disney+ on iOS and iPadOS

Just like Android, iOS and iPadOS are entitled to their official version of the Disney+ application. It requires an iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS/iPadOS version 14.0 and is available directly from your device’s App Store, or by clicking on this link. Here too, we advise you to only download this official application.

Watch Disney+ on Windows computer, Macbook, Chromebook, …

As a general rule, any computer connected to the internet and having a browser (Chrome, Safari, Brave, Edge, Firefox, etc.) will allow you to enjoy Disney+ without any problem. Whether it’s a Mac running macOS, a computer running Windows or Linux, or a Chromebook running ChromeOS, you won’t be harmed.

Disney+ on Mac (macOS)

Currently, the macOS platform (Macbook, iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Studio, etc.) does not offer an official application. It is therefore necessary to go through your favorite browser and go to the official Disney+ website.

Disney+ on Windows

Unlike macOS, Windows has its own official app on the Microsoft Store. You therefore have two solutions for watching Disney+ series and films on Windows: the browser and the application.

Disney+ on Linux

If it was not offered at the launch of the service, Linux is now fully compatible with the Disney+ video player. You just need to go to their official website through a browser. No application currently exists.

Disney+ on Chromebook (Chrome OS)

Out of habit, we might think that the weakness of Chrome OS in terms of the availability of applications could make this operating system incompatible with Disney+. Fortunately, this is not the case: it is quite possible to take advantage of the Disney service via the integrated browser (Chrome only). But that’s not all, since depending on your Chromebook model, you will be able to download the official Android application.
