Google encourages developers to update games to target Android Oreo
Google has released a guide on how developers can update their games to target Android Oreo, which will be a requirement for all apps in the Google Play store starting in August.

They recommend installing the Android 8.0 Oreo SDK, updating the game to target API level 26, and determining whether the game has any incompatibilities or issues. A more detailed set of instructions can be found here.

“Every new Android version introduces changes that bring significant security and performance improvements – and enhance the user experience of Android overall. Updating your games to target the latest API level ensures that your users can benefit from these improvements, while still allowing your games to run on older Android versions,” the Android team wrote in a post.
