Since December 14th, GTA III, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City have been available in their Android and iOS versions for Netflix subscribers, through the GTA Trilogy collection. However, many subscribers to the streaming platform are reporting difficulties accessing the games. In the vast majority of cases, this may have to do with compatibility issues.
When accessing games on the Play Store, for example, some players are receiving the message: “This app is no longer compatible with your device”. The reason for this may be linked to the requirements to run the GTA Trilogy titles.
Although the remaster is based on old games, it requires relatively recent devices to play well. If the minimum requirements are not met, Google Play and the App Store may not even allow games to be downloaded to prevent consumers from becoming frustrated.
What are the requirements to run GTA Trilogy on a cell phone?
This way, if you are having difficulty downloading GTA on your smartphone or tablet, It’s worth carefully checking the requirements for GTA III, San Andreas and Vice City for mobile devices. Below, see the list of specifications recommended by Netflix:
- Android 11.0 or newer cell phone or tablet, with a high-performance processor (such as Snapdragon 855 or higher) and GPU (such as Adreno 640 or higher);
- iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with iOS/iPadOS 16 or later, with A13 chip (or higher);
- An active Netflix subscription;
- An internet connection to download and install the game;
- Available storage space (at least 10 GB for each game)
If your cell phone does not meet the minimum requirements, downloading from official stores will not be allowed, which results in an error message. However, if you have a modern cell phone and think you can play the games, you can still download them another way.

Once this step is completed, you need to directly download the APK of the GTA – The Trilogy games from a secure source. The contents are exactly the same as the official store, but may end up not receiving updates automatically. In the case of the Netflix remaster, the titles are now available on APK Pure.
After making the transfer, just install the game normally and log in with your Netflix account. If performance is not good, it is worth adjusting the game settings to try to achieve a better balance.
However, if your device is very far from the official recommendations, an upgrade may be the only solution to be able to perform well.
