Discontinued support for Android 4 KitKat
As we announced earlier in the summer, Ingress will be discontinuing support for Android 4 KitKat in our next release, which will begin rolling out next week.
We originally planned for this to happen starting July 1, 2019 but were able to hold this change back to allow affected players extra time to update.
If you’re using a device running Android 4, you will need to update to Android 5 or above to continue to access Ingress. For detailed information on how to update to the latest version of Android, please view this support article on the Android Help Center.
For more context on this change, please see this Help Center article for additional details. Thanks for your understanding!
