Pokémon GO 32 Bit Support will be ending in August. If you're on a 32 bit Android device, you won't be able to access Pokémon GO after that point.

Pokémon GO 32 Bit Support Ending: Everything You Need to Know

Niantic has announced that Pokémon GO will no longer be supported on 32 bit Android software in order to streamline and focus on developing more advanced features on newer devices and operating systems. According to Niantic, these will be among the devices affected:

  • 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
  • Many Android devices released before 2015

Users on iOS and 64 bit Android devices will not notice anything different. To check if you're on an older operating system, go to your Settings and go to System. Look at the Kernal version code for x64. If you can't find that, you're on 32 bit. You can also check by downloading an app like AnTuTu Benchmark.

If you're on an older 32 bit device, you'll have no other alternative than to start playing on a newer device. Dig up your log in credentials, and you should be able to continue right where you left off on the new device.
