Big error on official BHIM mobile app FAQ page


Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the launch of BHIM app today. However, when we scanned through the official BHIM app FAQ page, we came across a big error that states Android version 8 as minimum requirement.

To find out the error, you need to jump to 4th FAQ. If you expand it, you will view the following message

Bharat Interface for Money app is currently available on Android (Version 8 and above) and iOS mobiles (Version 5 and above). We will be making our app available on other platforms very soon.

As of this writing, the Android version is 7.0. However, many people are still not yet used to even Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The Android market is still infused with Lollipop.
