How to fix If Clash of Clans isn’t compatible with your device

I have received loads of questions about the problem “Your device isn’t compatible with this version of Clash of Clans” after the update. This is a common problem of not only this game but also lots of other Applications on Android. Today, I’m going to show you hơ to fix that with ease!

Clash of Clans isn't compatible with your device

If your device isn’t compatible with Clash of Clans, please make sure that:

  • You are using the latest Google Play version.
  • Your Google Play Services app is updated to the latest version.
  • You are not using a custom ROM version of your device.

Most players can download Clash of Clans as normal after checking all 3 steps above. But If you still can’t, simply download the APK version of this game at here and install it directly on your phone, everything should be Okay.

If you still want to install the game directly from Google Play, you can go to Settings/Application Manager and Clear Cache of Google Play Store and Google Play Services (Thanks Jazzydeth for sharing this).

Don’t hesitate to ask If you need help. I will always try my best to help you guys!

    • Will Potter

      You can’t play Clash of Clans even after downloading the apk file?

    Help me out plz

    • Will Potter

      Hi Sheran,
      I am sure that the apk file above it the latest version.
      After removing Clash of Clans, please try to restart your game and install the apk file above!

  • Sam

    Just ask ur friends to send it to you through xender or shareit app, if they have it installed
    Or ask them to use an apk converter n you guys would b able to send it through BT.

  • jazzydeth

    I cleared the cache from the Google play store as well as the Google play service and it worked for me but I had to clear both caches because otherwise it would say my device was incompatible. This worked for me at least.

    • Will Potter

      Very nice. I’d love to update this into the post above. Thanks for sharing dude!

  • cyco

    Clearing cache didn’t work for me. What I did is open Google Play Games where
    my CoC is being saved at and get the APK from there surprisingly it worked. kkke

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for the quick update dude! Enjoy the game!

  • megat ahmad mustaqim

    • Will Potter

      Hi mate,
      Can you try to remove the old game before downloading the apk file above?
      It’s the latest version of Clash of Clans. I have just tested and it was still working very well.

      • Orlando Perez

        i have done what he did, still requires update. before installing the apk file you provided i already had clash uninstalled and cleared the cache and data of google play and services. after installing apk and running clash it requires update. cant update because it says device isnt compatible. restarted device and still does not work

        • Will Potter

          Can you send me the screenshot mate?

  • Shagor

  • Anaf Sharfuddin

    I have been playing clash of clans on my bluestacks. On 24th after the auto update of google play service on my bluestacks, I changed my Clash of clans game acc to my 2nd one. And since then, I cant change back to my main game acc. This is really frustrating. I deleted the whole bluestacks and reinstalled again. Now, it says ‘Your device is not compatible with this version’ when I try to download it from the google play store. What do I do?

    • Will Potter

      Hi Anaf,
      This is a new problem we have just faced. Please try to remove all current Google Accounts from your Bluestacks then try again!

      • Anaf Sharfuddin

        I couldn’t download it from the Google play store but your apk file got me the clash of clans. Unfortunately, coc had a new update now taht apk file doesnt work. And I removed all my google accounts and added them back in. Doesn’t seem to help much.

        • Will Potter

          You mean you have to update Clash of Clans??

  • POzz Ro MiNi EviL

    • Will Potter

      You need to use the official ROM mate. Otherwise, you can install the APK file above. Cheers!

      • jedster

        • Will Potter

          You can download it from your phone’s official website man!

          • jedster

  • POzz Ro MiNi EviL

    ok now i find the solution that i need to download its apk and install it now i can play coc again.

  • rizzla

    Hi,don’t mean to be a bother but I have a new tablet which is apparently incompatible with COC,I followed your directions and installed the apk you provided but im having the “new update – incompatible with device”problem and am wondering if its me,the device or the apk that’s the problem, thanks for the help as well mate

    • Will Potter

      What device are you using mate?
      Did you try to Clear Cache of your Google Play? Also, please update your Google Play Apps to the latest versions.

    • Will Potter

      Did you try to clear cache of your Google Play Services mate?

      • Masroor Wasi

        ofcourse, did all that was stated above.

        • Will Potter

          You even can’t install the apk file?

          • Masroor Wasi

            After installation your apk needs to be updated and play store wont let you update xD thats the problem

      • Masroor Wasi

        i have downloaded latest APK, but your apk isnt latest, it needs to be updated and the play store says not compatible and doesnot update. But if theres a new update i will be unable to play till theres an apk of the new one. So, please solve this D:

  • Masroor Wasi

    YAYYYY!!!!!!!! Solved it !!!!!!!
    Just wait for your Play store to be updated. It should solve the problem. IF the above doesnt work. 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 Glad to be of assistance.. I also have the latest APK if anyone wants

    • Masroor Wasi

      Will Potter, i recommend you also update your apk with this one, it is the latest. <3 but really thanks for your time man 😀 i love you xD

  • Aandroid70 Ttitanium

    MyPhone MY26 it is compatible for coc

  • Catherine Dye

    I just got a replacement phone for my phone I lost, and coc isn’t compatible with this phone–even though its almost exactly the same phone! So frustrating. I tried to download the APK version from here, and my phone just pretended to download it and it stopped downloading. Did I forget something?

  • Nathan J. Gray

    I don’t have the option to clear the cache and idk how my device isn’t compatable when I’m using a Samsung galaxy s7 edge

  • I cleared cache and data from Google play store app and restarted my phone. Then reconfigure my Google account into Google play store and was able to download Whatsapp again.
