Dear Seller,
This is the Galaxy Store Seller Portal Team.

Thank you for using Seller Portal and for your continued interest.

Galaxy Store and Seller Portal are always striving to provide the best app service in a stable user environment.

As security and performance improve with the release of new Android versions, we would like to inform you about the target API level requirements for improving user experience and providing secure apps.

When newly registering or updating an Android app,
if the API level requirements shown below are not met, the app can no longer be sold in Galaxy Store.

Please refer to the following requirements and schedule to ensure that you can continue to register and update your Android apps.

■ Target of application

- New registration or update of Android apps

■ Details and schedule

- The targetSdkVersion of the manifest specified in the APK must meet the following requirements.

- In the event that the targetSdkVersion is not specified, the minSdkVersion must meet the following requirements.

- If these requirements are not met at the time of newly registering or updating an app, the app cannot be registered.

- Apps that are already being sold are excluded from this requirement, but we recommend updating to the latest targetSdkVersion to   improve security, privacy, and performance for a better user experience.

Target Android OS version (API Level) Required by
Android 8.0 (API level 26) August 24, 2022
Android 12 (API level 31) TBD (to be announced later)
