Since November 2018, all app updates on Google Play have been required to target API level 26 (Android 8.0) or higher. Google will soon raise the required target API level to 28 for new apps:
- August 2019: New apps are required to target API level 28 (Android 9) or higher.
- November 2019: Updates to existing apps are required to target API level 28 or higher.
What does this mean for you? Very little really. What you need to do is to open your game.project file, jump to the Android section and change Target Sdk Version from 26 to 28.
We will in the next release, scheduled for the 5th of August, increase the default value to 28 and update the underlying Android SDK used when bundling for Android.
If you do run into any problems please reach out to us and we’ll work together with you to find a solution or workaround.
