Hype and Android API-levels

We are using Hype and Phonegap Build for our App. Until today everything worked fine. Now we are getting an error message after trying to upload an app update to Android Store. It seems that Hype is not supporting Android 8.0 (API-level 26). It’s a new requirement from Google.

What I need to do to support as well the newest Android versions?

Hopefully somebody could help

Just looking at the what’s new for the APIs I see they are extensive.

Not being an Android dev, I can only assume that a webview is used where Hype is concerned.

Why do you think it is Hype and not phonegap

Please be more specific

Specific errors generated, steps to reproduce, and examples would be useful!

i have today the same error after uploading my app to the googleplaystore.
I make later some screenshots 4 ya.

From august the api must be at least 29

here are the pictures from googleplaystore


My app is not 4 my mobile phone online! it will not be shared by googleplaystore, please add the new api’s in hype


What ever the issue is, it is related to API Level 28 not 26.


As @jonathan mentions more detail please.

Which may help some find the issue, whether it be in Hype, Phone Gap or some other setting/code you are using.

I have the same issue. An answer from the Hype support would help.

The Link https://developer.android.com/about/versions/pie/android-9.0-changes-28 is not helping.

Kind regards

I think that may have been you answer.

No one but you knows what your setup is, what your app does, what you have setup in hype etc.
I honestly am not sure how you expect an answer without any real details.
Also as I mentioned before the API’s are extensive and the issue could be phonegap or some other thing you are doing.

And what part of the API do you think is being violated?
