no it is for both new apps and updated apps
full text is
Starting August 1, 2019 :
- All new apps and app updates that include native code are required to provide 64-bit versions in addition to 32-bit versions when publishing to Google Play.
- Extensions: Google Play will continue to accept 32-bit only updates to existing games that use the following SDKs:
- Corona Labs SDK - until August 2020
- Adobe Air software and the AIR SDK - until August 2020
- Unity 5.6.7 or older - until August 2021
Starting August 1, 2021:
- Google Play will stop serving apps without 64-bit versions on 64-bit capable devices, meaning they will no longer be available in the Play Store on those devices.
- This will include games built with Unity 5.6.x or older.
The requirement does not apply to:
- APKs or app bundles explicitly targeting Wear OS or Android TV, which are form factors that do not currently support 64-bit code.
- APKs or app bundles that are not distributed to devices running Android 9 Pie or later.
We are not making changes to our policy on 32-bit support. Play will continue to deliver apps to 32-bit devices. This requirement means that apps with 32-bit native code will need to have an additional 64-bit version as well.
simply put into a one liner
“Google Play will continue to accept 32-bit only updates to existing games that use Adobe Air software and the AIR SDK, until August 2020”
see Adobe AIR got extension until August 2020
the copy of the talk with google support
This email refers to new uploads, or just updates
This if for both new apps and new updates for existing apps.
The extension of the time limit to August 1, 2020?
If you are using until, yes.
It is very important for my development to clear up this confusion.
On August 3, 2019 I will be able to upload a new application in 32 Bits.
Yes, this is the important part for you. Game apps that use Corona Labs SDK and Adobe Air software, will be granted an automatic extension until August 2020 and Game apps that use Unity 5.6.7 or older will be granted an automatic extension until August 2021 to allow proper migration time.
ok thank you very much for this help
Happy to help.
Did you have any other questions regarding the Developer Console today?
nothing thanks for the help
interesting part is “This if for both new apps and new updates for existing apps.”
