UPDATE POSPONED Pokemon Go to end Support for 32-bit Android Devices

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:

  • Settings
  • 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.
