Apparently smartthings is now dropping support for android devices that run version 7.1 or lower. Here is the if the relative notice:
Dropping update support (that is, no more updates), but it says the app will continue to run as is on the older OS.
Thank goodness too. I may be using an old Note 5, but the darn phone just works without a problem and the battery life is still really good.
I am jealous of my wife’s new S20 and how much faster ST is on it, but I plan on updating my phone very soon. I just hate having a perfectly fine device (and completely scratch less too) just fade away.
I suppose I can use Galaxy Upcycle now… oh no, can’t use that either. Ain’t worth crap $'s either.
It is just a matter of time, that they will change something on the cloud side that it will break completely the old apps…
The devices provided through app updates is a bit disturbing…
You can use Galaxy Upcycle on the OLDER phones, oh wait, as you just wrote…
while i use a couple of phones, i just checked my old CHEAP (read: if it breaks its no big loss) goto phone that i use on a daily basis and its android 7.0.
I think i paid around $20-30 for it 4-5 years ago.
i know there were possible security issues with Huawei, but i dont do any banking or the likes on it.
Sould be able to use the newly released Browser-Based Web Portal on older devices for day to day use when no Automation work is needed.
