Thanks to @Bokonon for creating and maintaining this thread.
Our Galaxy S7 just stopped working with the Tesla app. Tried to reinstall. Google Play displays "Error: Your device is not compatible with this item."
We have been using this phone as a key for 2 years. Obviously "something" changed.
Is there any information on what is "required" on the phone side for the Tesla App?
Is it version of OS, BT or some security protocol?

It looks like the latest app has at least one notable improvement.
"Service" menu displays the last in-car alert on top:

It may have been removed as a supported device because those phones haven't received any security updates for over a year.

I was using a phone that had not received updates for 3 years, until it died a month back.

The app is supposed to be compatible with Android 5 and up, which is really old, so I think that being a year past the last update is unlikely as a reason not to install.

Thanks @garsh and @SimonMatthews. Helpful insights. Just wish I knew what it was.
Now I'm thinking: If Samsung isn't maintaining security on this phone maybe it's a wake-up call that it's not safe to use.

Yep. Unfortunately, that's the reality of smartphones. Pessimists will call it "planned obsolescence", but when companies like Qualcomm that produce most of the ICs that control wireless transmission/reception refuse to update drivers to work with newer versions of the Linux Kernel (i.e. those with security fixes), there's not a whole lot a vendor like Samsung can do.

It's time for you to upgrade.

Samsung make their own processors (Exynos) and Google will soon. Hopefully, Google will support their Pixel phones for longer.
