With any technology, it’s inevitable to see older versions eventually left in the dust, and today Pokémon GO has revealed that the game will end support for 32-bit Android devices. 

The update will go live at the beginning of August, and will affect devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, and Note 3, along with the Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3 phones. By cutting off older devices, the Pokémon GO team says they’re able to “streamline” the future development of Pokémon GO. If you’re curious, older iOS users aren’t affected. 

More than likely this won’t affect a huge amount of players, and if you can access your account your progress is saved, but it is something to note. If you, or anyone you know, still uses an Android released prior to 2015, you should look to upgrade your smart device before August!
