Vuze allows users to download music, videos, movies and large data packages that have been made available by other Vuze users through BitTorent file-sharing software. Formerly known as "Azureus," the free program is available on many digital systems and devices, including the Android operating system. As of February 2013, the latest version of Vuze -- "Vuze_4900" -- was not available through the "Google Play" store, meaning users needed to go to the official Vuze website to download the correct version.
- Skill level:
Tap the Internet icon on your phone and navigate to the Vuze website (see Resources). Decide which version of Vuze you want to download - Vuze or Vuze Plus - and tap the relevant orange- or blue-coloured tab on the right side of the Vuze homepage.
Scroll to the top of the Sourceforge website page to which you have been redirected. Choose which version of Vuze you wish to use on your Android phone. The different versions are listed in chronological order, with the first version of the program - "Vuze_4400" shown at the very bottom - and the latest at the very top.
Tap the version you wish to download and wait while the program, which is almost 19 megabytes in size, is installed on your mobile phone. Exit the web browser and go to the "Applications" pages of your phone and look for the Vuze icon. Tap it once to run the program instantly.
