Play Store developers will need to target their apps for Android 9 Pie by this fall

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Google is continuing to push Android developers to use the latest API features. Last November, all applications submitted to the store were required to target Android 8.0 Oreo or higher — meaning they would have to support runtime permissions and other breaking API changes. As expected, Google is now stepping up the requirements.

Starting in August 2019, presumably around the time Android Q will be released, all new apps will be required to target Android 9 Pie (API Level 28) or higher.

Monday, February 18th, 2019

After pretty much every carrier version of the device has already received the update, owners of unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9 phones are reporting that Android 9 Pie has started to grace their units. The hefty 1.7-gigabyte update also brings with it Samsung's updated One UI as well as the January Android security patch.
