Android devices, while having Android OS 5.0 or higher, must also have the following hardware in order to operate Lightning McQueen:

  • Bluetooth LE (4.0)
  • Front and rear-facing cameras
  • Microphone
  • Distinct multi-touch landscape touchscreen
  • WiFi capabilities

Without this hardware, the Sphero Lightning McQueen app will not show up for download in the Google Play store.
