Some users will have to give up Pokmon Go unless they change their mobile phone. And not only Pokmon Go, this will also be suffered by Ingress players, the father of Pokmon Go, which was launched years before, also from the same company: Niantic.
Add to Android 4.4 Kit Kat
That's right Pokmon GO and Ingress say goodbye to Android users Kit Kat, version 4.4 of the system, which was launched in October 2013, six years ago. How time goes by, right?
The truth is that Android 4.4 Kit Kat already had a very small percentage of users, and we are talking about Only 6.9% of Android users are using this version.
But with the popularity of the game, we are sure that many players will be affected by this decision by the Niantic team. And I hope that you are not part of this 6.9% and you can continue playing quietly and continue hunting your Pokmon and conquering your gyms.
Pokmon Go already had its reasons why it can be banned and they have to be respected, what users did not expect, is that they, without doing anything wrong, could stay out of the game.
Do you have Android 4.4 Ki Kat? Some solutions to the problem
Anyway, do not worry, if your account is not banned they will remain intact, so there are solutions.
Buy a new phone
The first and easiest solution is to checkout, buy a new phone. It does not have to be a high-end or high-performance phone, while running a more modern Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, there will be no problem. That is, all new phones that you can buy meet this requirement.
Be attentive or attentive to the offers that appear, you can find incredible offers such as the Samsung Galaxy S10 reduced 300, or sales of the Moto G7 Plus only in recent days. So it is to be aware of what is coming out or choose a good quality phone wisely if you do not want to spend a fortune.
Use a ROM
This solution requires technical knowledge (or knowing someone who has them), and there are certain old phones that have support for ROMs such as LineageOS or Pixel Experience, which will allow you to update your phone's operating system even if the manufacturer does not officially support.
