Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro block the installation of non-64bit apps

The Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro phones, which were released on the 13th of October, creating a revolution in the phone market, are now a topic of conversation among many people. This phone model, which is in great demand in the market, has attracted the attention of many people through a controversial incident recently. That means the Pixel 7 line of phones will be the first Android phone to block the use of non-64-bit apps.

Note that Flappy Bird, a 32-bit application, cannot be installed on Pixel 7 phones.

Briefly about 32-bit and 64-bit (Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro)

Simply explained, the main difference between this two 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems is the Processing Speed. 32-bit applications are slightly faster, while 64-bit applications are faster in comparison.

In 2011, Android started supporting 64-bit applications with the release of Android 5.0. Although 32-bit is also supported, Google once mentioned that they are moving to fully 64-bit.

However, in the year 2019, Google made the 64-bit requirement mandatory for all applications provided through the Play Store and removed all existing applications that were not 64-bit and all applications to be added in the future.

Under such circumstances, Google has decided to allow the use of only 64-bit applications for the Google Pixel 7 line of phones. Mishaal Rahman posted a message on Twitter and stated that the Pixel 7 phone line only supports 64-bit and when trying to install 32-bit apps, a message appears to the user stating that the app cannot be installed.
