Hey @alirezaimi

Android 4.4 is welllll out of date and is not supported anymore even by the Android developers. While I’m sure the developers of the Rocket.Chat Android app are trying hard to be as backwards-compatible as possible, it’s just not always possible. You best bet is to upgrade to a recent version of Android.

Cheers
Thomas

Yes ! but most of apps still works fine on android 4.4 !!
I can not upgrade my android because my device company(lg e988) dose not provide any !!

If there’s a chance to support android 4.4, i appreciate it.

I feel you, I really do. I myself am really pissed off about the state of affairs when it comes to vendors not supporting sometimes even devices only 2 years old. It’s a waste of resources to throw away those devices just because they are not supported anymore and just because it creates more revenue to simply push out a new device instead of supporting old ones.

Yet I stand by my initial assessment of the development situation, as it doesn’t make any sense to develop against a dead Android version.

Cheers
Thomas
