Google Buzz now available for older versions of Android

      Comments Off on Google Buzz now available for older versions of Android

As I’ve noticed today Google has enabled Buzz for older versions of Android phones. When they first launched a few days ago, Buzz run only on Android 2.0 or 2.1 and I felt Google made a bad choice. Now this has changed so Google Buzz now works under Android 1.5 and Android 1.6 as well as newer 2 versions. When you run it in your mobile browser, the table with suported phones isn’t loaded by default any more. Now the message is shown that “buzz.google.com requires Android OS version 2.0+ [or] iPhone OS version 3.0+[.] Older OS versions may be able to access some features, but are not officially supported.”

The actual link to start using Buzz says “Continue on an unsupported device”. I tried it and I haven’t discovered any broken features on my Samsung Galaxy i7500 Android 1.5 phone.

This was quick and I have to congratulate Google for a quick reaction. They have also updated some private features that users have been complaining about so I hope they have the version for Google Apps ready soon.
