Google Only allows 64-bit Apps in the Play Store from 2021. Google will no longer allow 32-bit versions of apps in the Play Store from August 2021.
All Android apps must then be transferred to 64-bit versions.
That is what Google has declared on its Android weblog.
From 1 August 2019, developers must also offer 64-bit alternatives of apps alongside 32-bit versions.
From August 2021, 32-bit apps are no longer welcome in the Google Play Store.
Then developers can release 64-bit versions.
Google expects phone manufacturers to discontinue making smartphones with 32-bit support at some point.
By only letting 64-bit apps pass, the company wants to stop certain apps in the store from being useless.
A 64-bit-architecture phone can handle more memory and run heavier apps.
It enables smartphones to multitask better.
Apple has stopped supporting 32-bit versions since iOS 11.
Apps for iOS that only offer 32-bit support therefore no longer work on iPhones and iPads with recent versions of the mobile operating system.
