# The Brilliant App

A lot of phones still use Android 2.2 and above. Can/will the brilliant app be made available for this OS version or will it be restricted to 4.1 and above?

Hi Tanishq,

We will start supporting earlier versions of Android based on demand. The next step would likely be Android 3.0. We will only support as old as 2.2 if significant portions of our member base are on that platform.

Have you been able to download the app, or are you excluded due to an old OS?

As an additional curiosity, what elements of the app are causing it to be a 4.1 only right now? Is it elements of the code itself or was it simply a choice when the app was written?

I've been excluded to an old OS. Even my tablet at best supports 4.0, and my phone is stuck on 2.2.

I want the app to support 2.2

We do too! But... we have no plans at this time of supporting Android v2.2 -- too expensive to do so.
