The question of how to get new features in an old phone, in this case Android(?), may be something you can do with updates downloadable from on of the "official" stores, or it may require one of those "shadow world" methods that seem to be popular with some.

While it doesn't specifically address the question asked as far as I can see, some might be interested in "whatzitallabout" in this world we don't see too often out here in civilization.

Note that I don't have any need to do any of this, so can't give any advice. These are just examples of some "tricks" given by a source that has been usually otherwise reputable, so you can see a little of the kinds of things at a "safe" place.

As the article says ... "at your own peril."
