Google has updated the Google Play Store to require Android 5.0 (or newer) and 64-bit architecture support, while phasing out 32-bit architecture.  Due to these adjustments, the Play Store will no longer support the DW Spectrum IPVMS Mobile application on 32-bit devices.  Affected devices will be unable to locate DW Spectrum IPVMS Mobile in the app store. 

To check if your devices are compatible, you can access the Google Play Store from a browser and log into your Google Account.

The browser will show the application, and indicate what devices on your account are and aren't compatible.

Installing Manually

If your device is an older model and is not compatible, you can download version 19.5.30066 of the application HERE. 

To install the application manually:

1. Save the file (dwspectrum-client-19.5.30066-android_arm32.apk) to your mobile device.  Either download it directly to your device, or download it to your computer and transfer the file to your device.

2. Locate the file on your device.  If it was downloaded on the device directly, it will be in your Downloads folder.  If transferred from your computer, simply locate the directory that you saved the file to.

3. Select and open the file.  The device will ask if you are sure you want to install it.  Select Yes to install the program to your mobile device.

Once installed, you can access the DW Spectrum IPVMS Mobile application by launching it from your applications list on your mobile device.
