The NHS COVID-19 app is no longer in use and the Isle of Wight trial has now ended. This is archived information from 18 June 2020. If you still have the app, please uninstall it.

To install and use the NHS COVID-19 app, your mobile device will require Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 4 or above and Operating System software Android 8 (Oreo) or above such as Android 9 (Pie) and 10. We are looking to support earlier versions in future where possible. Currently, if your mobile device does not satisfy these requirements you may not be able to find NHS COVID-19 app within the Google Play Store or it will be listed as unsupported.

The following list of mobile devices have successfully been tested with the NHS COVID-19 to ensure successful operation.

If your phone is listed below, and are having difficulty installing the NHS COVID-19 app please ensure you are on Android 8 or above.

If your phone is not listed below, it may not have been tested yet and may still work as long as it satisfies the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 4 or above and Android 8 or above.
