Pokemon Go Error: Device Not Compatible with this Version How to Download?
I have been seeing a lot of my friends on facebook getting frustrated about this error message on google playstore, "Your device isn't compatible with this version.". So I searched for some ways on how to download pokemon go on mobile devices with lower specs so that they can join the pokemon bandwagon.
Last Saturday, I was able to download the application on my phone's playstore. At first, there was an error saying that pokemon go isn't available to my country so what I did was I used a dummy gmail account that is based in the United Kingdom. Surprisingly, it worked!

Try these basic troubleshooting steps that might help fix the issue:

b. Scroll down to Accounts (or Account & Sync) and touch Google.
c. Touch the name of the account to remove.
d. Touch the menu button (3 dots) and select Remove account.
e. Repeat this process for all accounts on the device.
2. Once all accounts have been removed, advise the user to restart the device and proceed to re-add the accounts:
a. Go to Settings.
b. Scroll down to Accounts (or Accounts & Sync).
c. Touch Add/Plus and then Google.
d. Touch Existing and sign in with the desired Google account.
3. Restart your device.
