• Is it possible to activate an Android phone on a network with IPv6-only access to the Internet?
  • Does Google support all their services over IPv6?
  • Has anyone tried it?

I'm going to need to activate an Android device on an IPv6-only network in the near future. Any help regarding this appreciated.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • The only way you can get IPv6 is to roll your own kernel but you are on your own since 1) no device mentioned and 2) no Android version mentioned so we cannot tell from there! – t0mm13b Aug 3 '13 at 23:59

All Google services are accessible via IPv6, since June 6, 2012.

And yes, I've tried it myself. My own Android is on IPv6.

  • IPv6 unequal to IPv6-only. So are you sure that you did not have IPv4 access (along side IPv6) when you activated your device? – Oxwivi Mar 31 '13 at 5:05

    Oh, and just FYI, the page you linked to doesn't mention anywhere that all Google services are available over IPv6. It just said it was enabled, but no mentions of it was full or partial. – Oxwivi Mar 31 '13 at 5:12
  • Yes, it is fully enabled and you can access Google from an IPv6-only network. Perhaps English is not your native language? – Michael Hampton Mar 31 '13 at 12:58
