Ledger Live app launches for iOS and Android smartphones

Cryptocurrency security infrastructure company Ledger announced today that its Ledger Live app can now be downloaded for smartphones on iOS and Android. Those with a Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue can currently use the app in consultation mode.

This allows Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue users to view their balances by scanning a LiveQR code presented on the Ledger Live desktop version. Currently featured in consultation mode, the app enables users to check the value of your crypto assets anywhere you go.

In the future, Ledger Nano S users (Android smartphones only) will be able to transact as well through the use of an OTG cable. Ledger is currently working on having the same features for the Ledger Live mobile app like the desktop version.

The Ledger Live smartphone app is compatible on iOS 9+ or Android Lollipop (5 and above) operating systems or higher.

To note, the newly released Bluetooth-enabled Ledger Nano X will be able to connect to both Android and iOS smartphones using Bluetooth. Along with the newly released Ledger Live application, this will allow users to connect to your smartphone without the need of a cable.
