Hey hey everyone!
I’m Emma, one of the Android Engineers at Monzo with some questions for y’all! Every year Apple and Google release new versions of iOS and Android, and we update the Monzo app to make sure it works well on these updates. Over time, we end up supporting more and more versions, which tends to get a bit painful - there are always unexpected bugs and issues that arise which take time to resolve. This means we have to do more development as well as more testing, to make sure everything is great whatever device you’re using.
What I’d love for thoughts on are the following questions:
- What do you think about us stopping supporting older versions of Android and iOS?
- How long is reasonable to support a version for?
The reason I’m asking, is because we’re starting to consider how long we should continue to support Android 5.0 and 5.1 - for context, 3.4% of our active Android users use these versions.
