API 33 Google play requirement after 31 August

Hi, I am looking forward to see that update as I am having the same issue
And the time is getting tighter

I have requested extension until Nov

However I've searched on youtube and I came cross some developers who posted a video on how to manually update the app to target SDK 33 using some apps such as

  • APK tools
  • APK to aab
  • ZipSigner Apk

it's a bit tricky and not striaghtforward method though

does anyone recommend using that method?

Thank you

Basically not. Why you want to do it, so why does your app even require it? In any case, I would wait until the new update (with tragetSdkVersion = 33) is available. To make it short, why don't you wait and see?

Good question
Ok then I will wait
I was just looking for alternative way
But I would rather wait safer too
Thank you

Anything new on this?
(So far it doesn't seem to have happened.)

ai2-test has been updated. We ran into some issues earlier today and had to withdraw and then update to fix a critical issue, but the site should be stable now.

Unfortunately the translator is bungling your message. The release is going out in a few hours so if you are concerned about building with the test server, I would encourage you to wait until the release is officially out.

more in relation to the playstore requirements about Android SDK 33 how do I solve it since I don't intend to do much I upload my aia to the test server and recompile it that will work in the playstore could you help me about this

Hi I have this from GooglePlay notice:

and my testing app is:

Already SDK 33 but the API is 21+, yet still being notice by Google.

Should I ignore? or how should i go about.
Thank you for any help in advance.


Are you sure that these screens are from the same app? If so, I would just ignore it.

Noted. Will ignore for now.


Hi all,
Thanks for the replies.

I get the message in the page of the app. I am sure is for the app. What I am not sure is the message for older version or not, though I had updated to newer one.

For I now I will just ignore the warning message.

Thanks again.

I'm sure ... as of Aug. 11, 2023, there was no targetSdk 33 version of AI2.

thank you.

Thank you very much for everything, I am already updating all the apps without problems
I only have one person who tells me that it does not work on a mobile with Android 13 but I will detect what happens

What does not work Android 13?

Hello Anke! I have not sent it to a client to an apk that I have on Google Play and he tells me that it does not work, now I sent him another one so that he can tell me what is not working for him, he tells me that the phone restarts all the time I'll let you know as soon as I confirm
