How can I use wget command in “Android Terminal Emulator” app in android. It says /system/bin/sh: wget: not found. It means need to install wget in android. Please help me.

You need to install busybox in your android system then you can execute wget command,try to get it from play store

There’s no wget binary in Android, you are expected to get that information from error message. So you need to install wget first.

At least on Lollipop for me (possibly earlier?) there’s curl, an alternative to wget for many cases.
