We are excited to announce that ArcGIS AppStudio 4.3 is now available as a public beta. Downloads are available through the Early Adopter Community. We encourage you to experience the new features and enhancements (and report bugs) by participating in the beta program. Your feedback will help us greatly improve AppStudio and deliver a stable, high-performance product to everyone for the final release.

 

Get your apps ready for Google Play requirements

Starting  August 3rd, 2020, new apps submitted to the Google Play Store must target Android 10 (API level 29), and by November 2nd, 2020, all apps that are updated must target at least Android 10 (API level 29). We have made significant changes to AppStudio Desktop, Player, AppFramework, and templates to make sure your AppStudio apps will meet Google Play’s target API level requirement. Review this blog post to learn more details about the changes for Android 10. We highly encourage you to download the AppStudio 4.3 beta from the Early Adopter Community and test your app to make sure it continues to work well on Android 10 devices.
