Last year, Google announced that it would require developers to migrate to 64-bit as soon as possible, including developing and submitting 64-bit applications and replacing 64-bit development tools. The 32-bit version of the development tool can only develop 32-bit applications cannot develop the 64-bit version, so according to Google requirements, developers should migrate as early as possible. Of course, even if developers are not willing to migrate, they must migrate, because the 32-bit version of the Android Studio development kit will soon stop supporting.

Google plans that the company will begin to phase out the 32-bit version of the Android emulator at the end of this month, and the subsequent support of the Android emulator will not receive any new features. The specific version of this Android emulator is v28.0.25. The stop date is June 30, 2019. Of course, the 64-bit version of the Android emulator will continue to be updated. Then the 32-bit version of the Android Studio Development Kit will be discontinued by the end of the year, and will not receive any updates or new features.

Subsequent Google’s new version is only available in the 64-bit version and only adds functionality to the 64-bit version, although there are very few developers still using the 32-bit version.
