The free Xfinity app for Android is the easiest way to activate your Internet service and manage your Xfinity account. Of course, your first action will be to set up your home Wi-Fi network, but this free Android app can do much more.
In addition to setting up, you can use the app to check your network speed like Network Speed and FCC Speed Test, troubleshoot any problems you’re having, and even pay your bills. Support is built into the app, and help is available whenever you need it, any day of the week.
What is Xfinity?
Xfinity is Comcast’s brand for its range of home internet services. The company claims wireless internet speeds above one gigabyte per second, and they offer additional services such as TV streaming and unlimited data packages.
If you have the combined high-speed modem and router known as an xFi Gateway, you can use the Xfinity app to control individual access to your network and pause Wi-Fi access to specific connected devices.
Is Xfinity free?
Because it’s linked to your Xfinity account, the only in-app purchases are when you choose to buy equipment or subscribe to more services via the app. There are no extra charges for using the app, as it’s simply a tool to make managing your account and internet service easier.
How do I get Xfinity on my Android phone?
To get any use from the Xfinity app, you must be an existing Xfinity Internet customer. Once you've downloaded and installed it, you’ll need to sign in with your usual Xfinity ID and password.
How do I remove Xfinity from my phone?
It’s a fully developed app, so removing it from your Android device is easy. Just like any other app from official sources, find it in your device’s apps list and long-press on the icon. Some launchers have a lock function to prevent you from accidentally moving or uninstalling apps, so if you get a message asking you to confirm, go ahead, then repeat the long press. When the ‘Uninstall’ icon appears, tap on it, and within a few seconds, the app will be gone from your device.
Faster internet at home
In our view, it makes perfect sense to have a one-stop app for controlling virtually all aspects of your home network, services, and configuring your devices. The 24/7 availability of support via the app is excellent and having access to user and security functions makes this one of the more helpful internet service companions we’ve seen. The Xfinity app is specific to Comcast’s internet service, so if you’re a customer of their competitor Verizon, you’ll need the Verizon My Fios app.
