Minimum requirements for Hulu on your Android

The Hulu features and experience are available for Android devices (running Android 4.0.4 and above). You will need a device with a screen that is 800x480 pixels. In general, if the device does not have the Google Play store or other Google apps (Gmail, Maps, etc), it will likely also not be able to use Hulu correctly -- this is frequently the case with very inexpensive tablets. We recommend updating to the most current version of Android if you experience trouble downloading the Hulu app.


If you tap the Hulu logo or the three horizontal bars in the top left corner, a menu will slide out that includes your Queue, Favorites, History, and a variety of browsing options:



Hulu for Android requires devices to support certain content security features and is designed for Android devices that have a touch screen. Android devices that are not supported will either not be able to download Hulu or will not be able to stream videos. For the best playback experience, we recommend updating to the most recent software version for your Android device.
