Google announced that it will stop supporting 32-bit Android Studio system software and 32-bit Android emulator from 2020 and will only support the more efficient 64-bit versions of the Integrated Development Environment (IDE ).

As reported by 9to5 Google, Google will end support for the update to the 32-bit version of Android Studio IDE 3.6 on December 31, 2019, and the Android emulator will be deprecated on 32-bit systems with version 28.0.25 on June 30 2019. However, 32-bit support for Android Studio IDE 3.6 will continue for one year after December 31, but will remove all support and download links on December 31, 2020.

According to Google, running Android Studio on 64-bit rather than 32-bit systems allows for a “better development experience” with IDE, while providing the Android emulator with “efficient memory access.” The company also said that while this change does not affect most Android Studio users, those using 32-bit versions of Microsoft Windows will definitely be impacted. During this transitional phase, Google is helping users of the 32-bit version of Windows by providing details of the upcoming decline schedule, as well as corrective actions to follow for the changes.

Earlier this month, as reported in this post, Google launched the beta of Android Q 4 with finalized APIs that will help developers with new features like system-wide dark mode, Answers / smart actions for notifications and foldable smartphone layouts, which can be used without worrying about broken functionality in the final version. The company plans to release two more beta versions before Android Q (10) is ready to ship at some point in the third quarter.
