Changes to Google Play submissions

dunbarx via use-livecode
 From the blog:
"We’re giving Android developers a heads up about changes coming to
Google Play to increase app security and performance. In the second half
of 2018, new apps and app updates will be required to target a recent
API level. In 2019, new apps and app updates with native libraries must
provide 64-bit versions in addition to their 32-bit versions."

More here:

How will this affect our Android apps? Are we 64-bit? Is there a way to
"target" a version? I only see a way to select a minimum version in
standalone settings, though I guess we could provide a custom manifest.

A quick update on these things from the tech team point of view:
We have made a a start towards both these things - firstly we have
identified a number of issues that need to be fixed in order to increase
the target sdk version. As you say, we probably need to add target sdk
version to the settings.
We also have an outstanding PR adding 64 bit Android support to the engine,
so there’s a bit of work to add support in the standalone builder.
