Multi-national tech conglomerate Google will set stricter measures when it comes to outdated apps being installed on new devices, suggests a newly listed code.

According to GSM Arena, a tech-news related news website, starting with version 14, Android won't allow even sideloading apps that target older versions of the OS.

Currently, Google doesn't allow newly listed apps on Google Play to target Android versions older than 12 but still allows users to sideload older software.

Also, Google Play will still allow you to install older apps, which you have already installed in the past. As previously pointed out by GSM Arena, all that is about to change with Android 14.

The website is an aggregator of news from open sources. The source is indicated at the beginning and at the end of the announcement. You can send a complaint on the news if you find it unreliable.
