Starting at the end of the week, California residents will be able to take another step towards slowing the spread of COVID-19 when the most populous state in the United States launches its own COVID exposure notification app. You can register CA notification from Thursday December 10. With this upcoming launch, California becomes the 18th state in the United States to deploy an app using the Exposure API from Apple and Google, which the two tech giants released in may.
If you’re using an iPhone, you can sign up for the program once it’s available by opening the Settings app on your phone, going to Exposure Notifications, then selecting California when asked where you live. . The only technical requirement you should keep in mind is that you must have iOS 13.7 or later installed on your phone. The previous version of Apple’s mobile operating system supported devices as old as the iPhone SE and the first generation iPhone 6S. On Android, you will download the CA Notify application from the Play store. You will need a phone with Android 6.0 or higher.
