JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Niantic has announced that it would remove the support for Pokemon GO and Ingress games for old Android phones starting on July 2019.

"Android users: Support for Ingress and Pokemon GO is no longer continued for Android 4 KitKat after July 1, 2019," Niantic said via Twitter account @NianticHelp.

Niantic did not explain the reason they removed the support of the Pokemon GO and Ingress games on Adroid KitKat, however, they advised users to update the operating system on their devices.

"We expect you to update the operating system to Android 5 or above so that access to Ingress and Pokemon GO is not interrupted. See help in the game for more information," Niantic said.

Pokemon animation will also be appointed to the newest game next year. But, contrary to Pokemon GO which demands the physical activity of its players, the next game will focus on the user's resting time.

The game Pokemon Sleep will rely on the user's sleep activity. It's just that, not much information has been revealed by Nintendo regarding their latest game.
