64-bit APKs for Android by 1st August 2019

I received an email the other day from Google about my Play Developer account, and the fact that they will be requiring all devs to offer a 64-bit build.

They say it only applies to native code, but aren’t Cordova plugins just wrappers around native code?

Would the Cordova plugins that we all rely on in our mobile apps need to be updated to 64-bit versions also?

More info here:



One month to go until August 1, 2019, when Android builds will require 64-bit APKs.

@bradzo Are you currently building 64-bit apks to fulfill this requirement? If so, can you provide the steps you’re using to do so?


@chrishanyu I’m not doing any mobile development at the moment, sorry. :frowning:

Some of us are still successfully submitting apps to Google Play store. See here:
