The DJI Fly App needed for my new Mavic Air 2 and Mavic Mini does not install on a Samsung Galaxy TabA.  You can't even download it from the Play Store to the tablet.  Which seems odd to me.  My TabA is the latest model/version.  The DJI Fly app installs just fine on my new Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra phone.  
I was successfully able to download the DJI Fly install file and sideload it to my TabA with no issues.  The DJI Fly app on the TabA does recognize both the new Mavic Air 2 and Mavic Mini.  

Has anyone else done this successfully and if so have you had any issues flying?

The DJI Go 4 app installs and operates just fine on my TabA for my Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic Air and Spark.  So when is DJI going to update the DJI Fly app so that it can be downloaded and installed via the Google Play Store onto the TabA?

I use the TAB S5E.  I know its more $$$$ but the screen is so much brighter which is what your spending the dollars on.

Sounds great!  However, I am not asking about the TAB SSE.  I am asking about the TabA...

Since you have managed to install DJI Fly on the Tab A, the only way to check if it works is to test fly it.

Hithere, the DJI FLY APP was developed based on the 64-bit platform. The minimum request of installation environment as below:
1. Requires Android 6.0 or above.
2. Available ROM is 2GB and above.
3. Supporting ArmV8 64-bit architectures (64-bit processor).

Please check whether your tablet meets the requirement above. If it is not working, there might be a compatibility issue, it is recommended to use the phone in the recommended list for a better experience: https://www.dji.com/mavic-air-2/downloads

The Samsung Galaxy TabA 8 does indeed meet the installation environment requirements.  As stated, I can download the .apk file from DJI.com and sideload it just fine on the Galaxy TabA and it all works.    If the TabA did not meet the installation requirements sideloading the .apk file would fail right?  
  • So...why does DJI not allow the download and install of DJI Fly app to the TabA directly from the Google Play Store when it does for the DJI Go 4 app?
  • Also, why doesn't DJI support ALL newer Android devices that meet the installation requirement.
  • And lastly... when will DJI get off their ass and start supporting these devices??
