Amazon Releases Prime Video Android TV App!

Android Police speculates that this may be simply because Amazon has yet to update the app's compatibility list on the Play Store, but we'll have to wait and see to find out if this is truly a new dawn for Prime Video on Android TV. Under the new rules, developers will have to start specifically designing for Android Oreo's interface beginning in August of 2018, even if the app doesn't actually require Oreo. Existing apps are also required to adopt the same API level by November 2018. "This is to ensure apps are built on the latest APIs optimized for security and performance", Google added. That's when Google will require that new apps and updates to existing apps include 64-bit support.

Other than that, from next year beginning, Google Play Store will start to add a small amount of security metadata on top of each app's APK. "You do not need to take any action for this change", the company explained.

Google believes that these changes will make the applications of Play Store more secure than ever.

Well sort of. The thing is you won't be able to download it just yet, as the app doesn't seem to compatible any devices just yet.

The second measure will mean developers have to provide a 64-bit version of their apps in addition to their 32-bit versions.

All these changes should concern the manufacturers that do not update their smartphones on regular basis. The search gaint has been working hard on improving the Google Play experience for Android users.

So basically, after August 2019, 32-bits will become obsolete.

The update might not be available for now in all regions, but Google works fast most f the times. For example, purchasing digital Google Play gift cards.

Android Wear companion app, which is an inevitable app for every Android Wear watches.

When your phone can't run the app you want because the software is old, you'll notice.
This news is relevant for those who own another of the many Android TV boxes who may have always wanted Prime Video and have wondered why they couldn't. Google has also said that they will advance the requirement each year.
