New Google Play Target API Level Requirement for Android
Blog|by Leanne Bevan|13 August 2018
Recently (1 August 2018) Google Play announced that if you create new Android apps they will have to target at least Android 8.0 (Android level 26), and from 1 November 2018 updates of all existing apps will to need to target Android 8.0.
New Android versions bring better security and performance, which in turn enhance the user experience.
In light of this requirement, Embarcadero Technologies has announced that they plan to deliver support for Android API level 26 in their next major release of RAD Studio, 10.3. In the meantime, they suggest that their customers on Update Subscription join the upcoming 10.3 Beta. They also recommend that you take a look at Embarcadero MVP Dave Nottage's blog post on how to target Android API level 26 with Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio 10.2.3 Tokyo (read it here).
