In order to improve app security and app performance of Android apps, the much-needed step has been taken. Google Play host a variety of applications right from the ones having robust security and a few that are not very much secured.

  • Apps to be built on the latest APIs must be optimized for security and performance, Android apps are to follow the recent Android API Level. This will be made essential for the apps by the second half of 2018. The apps that are already existing need to update as per the prescribed guidelines.

  • In addition to the 32-bit version, Android apps will need to update to 64-bit version as per the new Google Play guideline by the end of august 2019.

  • The upcoming 64-bit data processor support will follow adding a small security metadata on different APK to verify the app authentication.

Google’s 64-bit data processor support seems to be a welcoming step in the vast world of smartphone wherein updates keep on coming frequently. Additionally, Google’s biggest competitor Apple started making 64-bit code essential for iOS apps in February 2015. The recent app update will provide a significant impact on the smartphone world.

The 64-bit requirement won’t magically make the Android apps powerful, but it is sure to encourage the developers to fine-tune their apps as per the recent Google update. In addition to this update, new apps in 2018 need to target Android Oreo programming interface to be able to keep their apps updated as per the recent Google Play guidelines.
