Telegram follows in the footsteps of WhatsApp and stops supporting versions of Android older
January 3, 2017
Although a mobile phone with an Android version old can remain functional, over time they will add more disadvantages than pushing to upgrade or even buy a new terminal if the upgrade is not possible. One of these drawbacks is when applications decide to stop supporting those versions more veteran, which is just what I just announced Telegram.
WhatsApp already made a similar play, and now Telegram follows the same path. If you have a smartphone with Android 2.2 Froyo, Android 2.3 Gingerbread or Android 3.0 Honeycomb no longer be able to use this messaging app
it Is normal that the apps no longer offer support for versions of the system that are left outdated. As we mentioned, WhatsApp has already done leaving out the versions Android 2.1 and Android 2.2. The court has established Telegram goes a step beyond and includes more current versions, although all of them were launched prior to 2011.
According to the latest distribution data of Android, Froyo is installed on 0.1% of devices, while Gingerbread holds a 1.7% share. Honeycomb, a version launched exclusively on tablets, it’s not even on the table. In this sense, the decision does not affect a large number of users.
this Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich becomes the minimum version required to use Telegram. users who have a device in one of the versions that have been left out, you can always use the web version of the application.
