In general we found that most Android devices with Android 6.x, 7.x, or 8.x OS when released work correctly, while half of devices with Android 5.x do not work correctly. Important: Android devices require the use of the micro USB to micro USB cable that comes with your Swivl kit.
*PLEASE NOTE: For Type C Android devices you will need a special USB Type C adapter with OTG support to ensure full data transmission to/from robot. For your convenience, our online store offers a compatible adapter we have already tested.
Sometimes users ask about specific Android devices they would like to purchase specifically for their work with Swivl. We've found that sellers may update older devices to Android 6.0 before selling them however this does not make such devices with updated OS compatible unfortunately. Thus for your convenience we will publish here not compatible devices considered for purchase by our users: Samsung Galaxy Tab E
