Google reminds app developers that there is something special about the Pixel 7 line
Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are the first 64-bit Android phones only
Using 64-bit apps only improves the security of your phone. This is due to the larger address space allowing the use of Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) which prevents attackers from taking advantage of memory corruption caused by errors. Building 64-bit applications also provides developers with better tools for finding memory errors and improving application quality. Moving to 64-bit apps can also make phone manufacturers roll out updates faster and more easily.
The company also tells app developers that “while 64-bit devices only grow in popularity with phones joining Android Auto in this group, 32-bit devices will continue to be important to Android Go, Android TV, and Android Wear.”
