BitLife has absolutely taken the world by storm, and it’s easy to see why after spending just a couple of minutes with it. It lets you live the digital life of your dreams, from becoming a rockstar to winning the lottery or just wasting your years away as an alcoholic. We don’t judge, and BitLife really doesn’t either.

But there’s one huge problem with BitLife and that’s the fact it’s only currently available on iOS. Android users have waited patiently since the game rolled out on iOS at the tail end of last year but it looks like that wait is coming to an end.

In this guide, we’re going to break down BitLife’s journey to Android so far, when you can expect to play it, and answer a few other general questions. Here’s hoping it’s sooner rather than later.

If you’re looking for something else, check out our complete guide to BitLife. It includes links to all of our other guides, where we’ve covered pretty much every aspect of this awesome game.

What is BitLife?

First things first: for those over on Android that haven’t heard of this yet, it’s basically a text-based life simulator with a seriously dark sense of humour.

You’ll play a ton of randomly generated characters as you strive to live your best BitLife – or your worst. Seriously, this game doesn’t discriminate and basically lets you do whatever the heck you want.

That includes nice things, like winning the lottery, becoming a famous movie star, and earning billions of dollars but it also includes nasty things like murdering, stealing, and grand theft auto.

The real meat of the game stems from the ribbon system though, which basically rewards you for living certain types of lives. We’ve run an extensive guide on these, as well as the achievements.

Is BitLife coming to Android?

Yes. Developer Candywriter has already revealed that BitLife is definitely coming to Android and development is well underway.

Droid Gamers discovered on December 14 that the developer had responded to a Reddit post that the team was:

literally working 10 hrs every day to get it done.

So yes, it’s definitely coming to Android.

When will BitLife launch on Android?

Candywriter took to Twitter just on Friday last week to announce that the Android version was close, and that the plan was to release it on Sunday, February 3. That date has passed now though.

Still, we’d say that’s a sign that the Android release is imminent – it could literally drop at any moment. We’ve reached out to Candywriter for comment, and will update this article as soon as we hear more.
