Update: Trainers, we previously announced that we would be deprecating 32-bit Android devices. However, to investigate player concerns, we are now postponing this deprecation to a (TBD) future date.
Previous Story: Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go will end support for 32-bit Android devices and you’ll need a compatible 64-bit Android device or iOS to continue playing Pokemon Go.
The support will end starting August 2020 and here is how to check if your device is 32-bit or 64-bit:
- System or About phone
- Software Information
- Check Kernel version
or double-check online.
In addition, you can see the list of devices that will no longer support the game (note that this list is not exhaustive):
- Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, Note 3, J2, J3
- Sony Xperia Z2, Z3
- Motorola Moto G (1st gen), Nexus 6
- LG Fortune, Tribute
- OnePlus One
- HTC One (M8)
- ZTE Overture 3
If the code inside contains ‘x64′ string, your device has a 64-bit OS. If you cannot find this string, then it’s 32-bit.
The update will “hit” these devices starting August 2020 and you’ll no longer be able to use your Pokemon Go account, you’ll lose your PokeCoins and any items you have.
