Google Play will remove these applications for not meeting certain requirements

Google is ready to implement new measures to provide additional security for users when downloading and using Applications from Play Store. In particular, the company warned developers that Apps that haven’t been updated for a while to adapt to new versions of Android will no longer show up in your app store and therefore will not be available to users.


The company confirmed on its official developer blog that the measure will begin on November 1, 2022. Above all, this new regime will apply to apps available on Google Play that two years without receiving any update from the developer. While there are likely to be apps that don’t require constant updates, the carrier mountain view says it’s important that they all support the latest versions of Android.

Therefore, creators who do not update their apps and include at least one API available two years after the last version of Android, they will see how their apps no longer appear on the Google Play website, therefore the number of newly installed users will be reduced considerably.

There are not many applications found in this context


Google assures that the main reason is to provide additional protection to users, since outdated apps do not include security and privacy features announced in newer versions of Android.

“As of November 1, 2022, existing apps that do not target an API level within two years of the last major version of Android will not be available for discovery or installation to new users with devices running Android. Android OS versions higher than the apps target API level. As new versions of the Android OS launch in the future, the requirement window will be adjusted accordingly.
