APK too large for Google Play

I created a simple app using the Map Viewer 4.2 template and attempted to upload to Google Play.  Looks like there is a 100 mb restriction the 64-bit version is too large.  About 108 mb.  The 32-bit version works but I'm getting an error when releasing to Alpha stage. 



This release is not compliant with the Google Play 64-bit requirement
The following APKs or App Bundles are available to 64-bit devices, but they only have 32-bit native code: 10000330.
Include 64-bit and 32-bit native code in your app. Use the Android App Bundle publishing format to automatically ensure that each device architecture receives only the native code it needs. This avoids increasing the overall size of your app. Learn More


I've tried using Android Studio to generate a signed APK bundle on the 64-bit version but receive an error "Generating signed bundle requires you to update the android gradle plugin to version 3.2.0 or higher."  I haven't been able to workaround this.


Any tips out there?
