Ever helpful, Upwork notified me when I opened the Upwork app on my Samsung phone today that "You're using an outdated app." So I had two choices: "Download Now" or "Maybe Later."


Never putting off for tomorrow what I can do today, I downloaded now. What I got was a much more robust app that provides more information and allows me to do more from my phone than was previously case. Well done, Upwork!


Unfortunately, what I also got was an app that tells me, every time I invoke it, that the version I am using is outdated and I have the same two choices. Even shutting down the phone and restarting doesn't convince this new version that it actually is the newest version.


C'mon, Upwork. You were thiiiiiiiiiiiis close.

Will, I had to actually delete the old version - my phone had both versions. The new version is amazing!

Hi, Miriam.


If no one from Upwork can resolve this issue, I will try your fix.

I am using Oneplus one mobile with android 8.1.0. Yet when I go to Playstore to download the app, I get item not found error.

There are issues in new app. This was very good idea to add more functionality but really not successful yet.


1: I can't send or see messages in new app (message window blinks continously)

2: New app is just like web page and its so slow in mobile internet rather than prevoius app. So, I always do not prefer to open new app. Old app was have limited optons but was fast.

I don't exactly know where to leave this kind of feedback so I am posting it here. The new mobile app isn't compatible with my phone so I couldn't use it (my phone is Huwawei Y6 Pro). I would just like to suggest to the upwork app developers to look into making it compatible to more devices. I would love to be able to access all the new features; I feel like I am missing out on a lot! Hope this post reaches the right people. Thank you very much!

Hi Michaela, 

The new android app requires an Android 6 or higher operating system. Could you please confirm if your phone's OS version so that I can look into this further for you?

Hello Avery,


Thanks for the reply. I see. My Android version is only 5.1. Is there any chance the app could be compatible to older versions in the near future?

They only recently delivered something that works on Android.


It is unlikely that the Android team has plans to make the app backward compatible with older versions.
