I was informed by someone that they can't find the app on Google Play. I checkec and, indeed, it is not there anymore. Would this be a definitive thing or just a problem with license renewal and soon it will be back?

It looks like a bad sign for board games that requires an app to play.

(Not that I believe that it would be unplayable... of course someone will figure out a way to make it available to download on android devices again, IF FFG indeed never gets it back there).

The iOS link still works, as does the amazon link. I don’t have an Android device but the amazon link says it works on android devices.

Edit: I say “works”, but I mean “isn’t dead”. However, I was able to download the xcom:tbg app using the iOS link

All right, thanks! Sorry for not looking for a previous thread about it.

Good to know that people with Android can download it through Amazon app store, but then FFG should remove the broken link to the Play Store from their website.

Anyway, thanks again!

Even if you don't have the Amazon app, you could download the Android apk for the app from one of various 3rd party app apk hosting sites.

For example:
