With Android Q’s release right around the corner, what minimum API should you target? My answer, Android M or API 23. What I suggest is as every new OS which is public from Google for the future, always update your minimum API to one above your previous. I know you’re thinking, “What happens if a user gets stuck having to delete my app?”. Well no worries! Your user can upgrade their device to the latest to fix this issue, problem fixed No but really, warn your users before this happens.
What concerns me is that Andoid Q is going to replace the “Back” button for a swipe gesture. I don’t know how this will affect the apps, maybe we will be needing to put a back button inside all the apps.
If it’s a swipe gesture, it’ll work for all apps. If this was the case, all apps on the Play Store would have to update to support it. I don’t think this would be the case.
