continued from a previously started thread: What to do when android app on google won't download because it says not compatible with my tablet?

I just wanted to let the folks know they helped me on my question about downloading an app to my apparently old Samsung. tablet.  They were right that the tablet is too old to upgrade from 4.2.2 to the current 4.4 version of android.

Guess eventually my wife will have to get a new tablet.

It is a shame Samsung can keep the operating system up to date like Apple and Microsoft can with their devices.

How do I let people know they answered my question and thank them?  This forum won't let me reply to a reply.

I would be curious what you mean by this? I have an old iPad which has not been able to be updated to the newest version of iOS for quite some time. There are many apps which can no longer be used on this device because they now require a newer version of iOS than what the iPad is capable of running. The original iPad was released in April of 2010. In June of 2012, it was announced that the original iPad would no longer receive updates to its operating system.

How "old" is the "old Samsung tablet" you can no longer update? If you want an android tablet which receives updates for a longer period of time, you should go with the Google Pixel C. That will likely be supported for a much longer period of time than anything Samsung puts out.
