Hello Google Play Developer,
This is a reminder that starting November 1, 2019, updates to apps and games on Google Play will be required to target Android 9 (API level 28) or higher. After this date, the Play Console will prevent you from submitting new APKs with a targetSdkVersion less than 28.
Configuring your app to target a recent API level ensures that users benefit from significant security and performance improvements, while still allowing your app to run on older Android versions (down to the minSdkVersion).
Android 9 (API level 28) introduces a number of changes to the Android system. The following behavior changes apply exclusively to apps that are targeting API level 28 or higher. Apps that set targetSdkVersion to API level 28 or higher must modify their apps to support these behaviors properly, where applicable to the app.
To target the api in your Cordova app set these min and target version in config.xml
<preference name="android-minSdkVersion" value="23" /> <preference name="android-targetSdkVersion" value="28" />
