Solved!

Is it possible for me to update my HP Slatebook to Android 4.4 or newer?

HP Recommended
HP SlateBook 10 x2 PC
Android 4.1 - 4.3.1 Jelly Bean

I recently received this HP SlateBook and when I tried to download Google Docs and Presentations, it said that my device is no longer compatible with the apps since it requires Android 4.4 or later, therefore I tried to update my SlateBook but it said that there were no updates available. Therefore I wonder if there is a way for me to update my SlateBook to a later version?

@Matias00,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

Thank you for posting your query on this forum, it's a great place to find answers.

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know how to update the Android OS on your Slatebook.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I checked the specifications of your Slatebook and see that the latest Android OS available for your Tablet is Android 4.3. You can download this version from the below link.

Hope that answers your question and you have a great day!

Hi!

 

Thanks for your quick response.

 

Does this mean that I will not be able to update my SlateBook to a newer version? Or is it possible that HP might release a new update for this particular model? And if so, how big are the chances of this happening, considering the age of this model?

@Matias00,

 

It is great to have you back and your patience is greatly appreciated.

 

Yes, you will not be able to upgrade the Android OS on this tablet. I am not sure whether an update will be released for this tablet and I do not have any information about the software updates.

 

I recommend you keep an eye on the HP website, if a newer version of the operating system is released it will be available on the website.

 

Hope that answers your question.

 

Good day! Take care 🙂

 

Cheers!

No chance of an update.  HP does not support their tablets with Android version updates.

 

Worthless answers here are a waste of time.  A simple "no" would better serve.

There are no updates available.  

 

HP abandoned their Android device owners...   😞
