Niantic has announced that Pokémon GO will stop working on Android mobiles with 32-bit architecture. As early as August 2020, Pokémon GO players on a 32-bit Android mobile will no longer be able to log into their account until they do so from a 64-bit device.
The golden rule is that a moderately recent mobile should be 64-bit, although if you have a terminal from a few years ago and you are not sure if it is 32 or 64-bit, checking it is very easy with the help of applications to identify the hardware of your mobile.
32 or 64 bit?
There are many applications to check the hardware of your mobile with which you can know if your mobile is 32 or 64 bits, but in the vast majority of them you are not clearly told the answer, but rather the name of the architecture is shown: armeabi-v7a, arm64-v8a, x86. Some of these names make it clear that they are 64-bit, but if you prefer something easier and to the point, 64Bit Checker is the application you are looking for.
This application does not beat around the bush and has literally a single button. When you put it, it tells you if your operating system is 64 bit or not. If your mobile is 64-bit, the text will say “This device has a 64-bit OS”. If it is 32-bit, the text reads “This device has a 32-bit OS”. If your mobile has an Android version lower than version 5.0, you don’t even need to check, because until then Android did not have 64-bit support.
If your mobile is 64-bit, Pokémon GO will continue to work on your mobile as usual. If it’s 32-bit, you have until August to find a new 64-bit mobile to follow your search and capture of animals. It will not be difficult for you to find a 64-bit terminal today, as it is the norm rather than the exception.
