Not sure what giants have done with this one , it's not compatible with my galaxy phone's or ipad.
I purchased a copy for Nintendo Switch £39 just to find its the same cut down version as the £7 phone version, the fs17 version for switch has all the same options as the pc. In comparison fs20 feels like a taster demo.

I won't be upgrading my phone or ipad just to play fs20. Giant's are forging ahead with their software and leaving a lot of us behind.

Currently all devices with GPUs that are worse or equal than the following GPUs are excluded:
Mali T830
Mali T720
Adreno 605
Adreno 508
Adreno 418

This includes the Samsung Galaxy J, A5 and A6 phones, the Galaxy A7 from 2017 (the 2018 version is supported) and the Galaxy Tab A. Or the Huawei P20 Lite, the Moto G5, G6, G7 and G7 Power (G7 Plus is just supported) or the Xiaomi Redmi 5, 6, 7 and 8 (supported are Note 5 Pro, Note 6 Pro, Note 7 and Note 7 Pro).

Most of these devices would work in principle, but are simply too slow. We are currently working on some optimizations and are also investigating whether some settings can be reduced so that we can still add some of these devices to the list of supported devices. However, we don't know exactly which devices are supported and when this will happen.

So most older phones and tablets that run android 7 (nougat) as upgraded software FS 20 will not run on?
Why did you not say that minimum spec required is android 8 (Oreo) that way a lot of people wouldn't have been disappointed and if it did work on there phone running 7 (nougat) it's a bonus.

Does this not strike anyone else as a HUGE amount of rather common devices that are otherwise current tech?

Note, the Galaxy Tab A 2019 is supported, but the Galaxy tab A 2018 is not.

I was able to purchase the game but not install it. I had to download the app from a different source and sideload it to my device and it works perfectly fine. The game is compatible with many more devices than it's made available for. I'm not happy that I had to go through all this trouble just to play a game that I paid for. Hope Giants is ready to refund a lot of money. Fortunately I can stream fs19 to my phone without all this trouble. And with way more features.

Based on previous answers, Farming Simulator 20 should be supported on Samsung Gatalaxy Tab 10.1 A 2019 (SM-T510).
But Google Play on it still shows it is incompatible device and blocks installation: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZTi7fe ... EAZe4/view

hajekv, there was one 2019 Tab A model that actually should be supported, but was marked as not-supported. We just fixed this, so it might actually be correctly displayed for you now.

@Stegei, thanks for info. I can confirm that FS 20 is available for Samsung Gatalaxy Tab 10.1 A 2019 (SM-T510). I've already purchased that.

CheyenneAutumn, for the moment it is the correct behavior that the SM-T290 and SM-T590 are marked as "not supported". They are simply to weak for the game to work well enough at the moment. We will however continue to work on the performance side and might eventually be able to enable those too.

In the future will the Samsung Galaxy A01 be able to download the game?
