Hi

I have a FP2 and I can not install INSTAGRAM. It will not be shown in the playstore. So I tried it via browser. I will find the comment: This App ist not compatible with your phone. As far as I can see, other users have installed Instagram. So what can be wrong?
Android 7.1.2
Build 19.02.1
Thank you for any help.

As far as I know, since the Android 7 upgrade some apps have become incompatible with the FP2. I don’t know when Fairphone is going to fix this however. I think there is nothing you can do at the moment.

Well … there’s still this Wiki and its “I regret upgrading, how do I downgrade?” section …

And there’s still LineageOS, just right now delivering Android 9 (LineageOS 16.0) to the Fairphone 2 … https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/FP2.

Hmm, I find Instagram on Google Playstore and installing does work as well. I use FP OS 19.02.1. I didn’t try starting it - immediately removed again after installation :wink:
