Ledger, a hardware crypto wallet maker has recently announced the launch of its mobile application for both Android and iOS devices. This is coming right after the launch of its latest hardware wallet, Ledger Nano S (a Bluetooth enabled wallet device).
New Ledger App is Only Available for Android and iOS Smartphones
With the launch of the new app, users of the hardware wallet can now view their wallet balances by scanning a LiveQR code presented on the Ledger Live desktop version.
According to the company, the new app is compatible with higher versions of Android and iOS.
“The Ledger Live smartphone app is compatible on iOS 9+ or Android Lollipop (5 and above) operating systems or higher,”
Added Advantage For Ledger Nano X Users
Using the app, users of the newly released Ledger Nano X will also be able to conduct transactions wirelessly. Through its Bluetooth features, users of the new wallet will be able to connect directly to their Android and iOS smartphones. Another added advantage to having the app is that installing other Ledger own apps and updates will be done easily.
“With the combination of the Ledger Live smartphone app and the Ledger Nano X, you will be able to manage your crypto assets. Not only that, but installing applications and updating your device’s firmware will be possible, everywhere you go,” Ledger Explained.
Full Version For Android User Only
It is important to note that the app is currently in its consultation mode. According to Ledger, a full version is under development and expected to get released soon enough. The company has also made it known that the full version will only be available to Android users and not iOS users. The reason for this is that the connection for the full version can only be done using an OTG cable.
Ledger confirmed this in a statement which reads:
“In the future, Ledger Nano S users (Android smartphones only) will be able to transact as well through the use of an OTG cable. We are working on having the same features for the Ledger Live mobile app as the desktop version,”
