Starting November 1, 2018, updates to apps and games on Google Play will be required to target Android Oreo (API level 26) or higher

When publishing an APK Android application in Google Play, the following warning may be received:


This is a reminder that starting November 1, 2018, updates to apps and games on Google Play will be required to target Android Oreo (API level 26) or higher. After this date, the Play Console will prevent you from submitting new APKs with a targetSdkVersion less than 26.

Configuring your app to target a recent API level ensures that users benefit from significant security and performance improvements, while still allowing your app to run on older Android versions (down to the minSdkVersion).

Action required

Please ensure that your apps are configured to target at least Android 8.0 (API level 26) by November 1, 2018. For technical advice on how to change your app's target API level to meet these requirements, refer to the migration guide.

In WINDEV MOBILE version 22 and version 23 including the "Update 2", the API level was set to version 24, hence the warning. Starting with version 23 "Update 3" of WINDEV Mobile 23, the API level has been set to 26.

This is the version to use to conform to the Google Play requirements.
