How to run 32-bit apps on 64-bit only phones (No root)

Emulating 32-bit (armeabi-v7a) apps on 64-bit (arm64-v8a) only phone must be possible without rooting. I decided to try some Virtual machine apps on my Pixel 8 Pro without 32-bit support. After trying all VMs (Except cloud VM), it turns out ONLY VPhoneGaGa worked on my phone. It runs a free Android 7.1.2 instance with both 32-bit and 64-bit support (armeabi, armeabi-v7a and arm64-v8a). Other VM either gets stuck on loading, stuck on boot screen or crashes.
This is the proof I’m running 32-bit app called Flappy Bird on my Google Pixel 8 Pro using VPhoneGaGa 3.9.1. Can’t see the video? Use VPN

I hope to see more VM’s support 32-bit emulation in the future when 64-bit only phone is more common

Using VPhoneGaGa

Official VPhoneGaGa version is free to use with Abdroid 7.1.2 ROM. However, in order to enable Magisk support or use Android 10 ROM, you need to pay for it.
Do not use modded VPhoneGaGa, they don’t work properly, and latest mod version might be fake

1. Download VPhoneGaGa APK from the official website:

2. Install VPhoneGaGa. Ensure to allow installation from unknown sources

3. Create a new Android 7 instance

4. Once booted, you can import your favorite 32-bit APKs, or enable Google Service Framework from VM settings and download your favorite 32-bit apps from Play Store

Cloud VM solution

Cloud Android emulator also support 32-bit. They don’t run on your phone, they run in the datacenter for 24/7. Cloud Android emulator costs money. It probably not reliable for you. If you have the money, want to use less resources on your phone, or run games in 24/7, go for it.

Tango translator

Latest Xiaomi phones and OnePlus phones (OnePlus 12 and above) will have a 32-bit to 64-bit ARM binary translator called “Tango” integrated into the system. Root is not required. Tango translator is founded from a company called Amanieu Systems, enabling you to run 32-bit apps. Here’s a link to Amanieu Systems’ page describing Tango: Amanieu Systems - Technology
