Google Pixel 7
First Android Phones to Support Only 64-bit Apps
Tech giant Google's newly launched Pixel 7 and 7 Pro appear to be the first set of Android smartphones that only support 64-bit apps.
In addition, several users reported that their new Pixel phones could not sideload certain apps, likely the 32-bit ones, citing sources, a media source reported.
If users try to install 32-bit apps, Google blocks them by displaying the message "app not installed as the app isn't compatible with your phone"
The report also mentioned that this change would not impact users' experience because, over the past decade, Google has spent a significant amount of time building up support for 64-bit in Android.
The Google Play Store has required all apps to have 64-bit support since August 2019, and it also stopped serving 32-bit apps without 64-bit support.
Powered by Google's next-generation Tensor G2 processor and shipping with Android 13, the Pixel 7 is priced at Rs 59,999 and the Pixel 7 Pro is priced at Rs 84,999 in the country.
