Android Question How will the new 64-bit policy from Google affect us?

Hi Erel and everyone,

I received this mail from Google a few days ago:

Ensure that your app supports 64-bit devices

Starting August 1, 2019, your apps published on Google Play will need to support 64-bit architectures. 64-bit CPUs deliver faster, richer experiences for your users. Adding a 64-bit version of your app provides performance improvements, makes way for future innovation, and sets you up for devices with 64-bit-only hardware.

My question is: Does this affect us? Is there any action we should take?

The mail goes on to say that they will stop supporting 32-bit apps in August 2021, so we still have plenty of time before we actually have to worry about it, but I'd like to know if there's anything we can start doing.

Thank you, and kind regards!
