Google Play Developer update

Hello Google Play Developer,

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

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.

Affected apps

The apps included below have one or more APKs—in production or testing  
tracks—that aren't currently targeting API level 26 or higher. Apps are  
listed with the maximum version code and corresponding targetSdkVersion. If  
you have more than 20 apps that could be affected in your account, please  
check the Play Console for a full list.
