But there are two main requirements for running the SideSqueeze app properly in Android Phone. Your Android phone must have water-resistant feature and a Barometric pressure sensor. Both the main requirements are thankfully pretty common in high-end smartphones. Combination of these features makes it possible for your phone to measure when it’s being squeezed and how hard. And also your Android phone must be running on Android 7.0 Nougat or higher operating system.

The developer of this SideSqueeze app only tested it on Samsung’s Note 8 and Galaxy S8 phones. But if your phone meets both requirements, it should work just fine.
