    TC8000 Update OS to API 26

    Dillon Pint

      Does anyone know if there is a way to update Zebra devices, specifically the TC8000, to API 26 or higher?


      I received these warnings from Google Play:

      From August 2018, new apps must target at least Android 8.0 (API level 26).

      From November 2018, app updates must target Android 8.0 (API level 26).


      Our clients using TC8000 devices, will need to be notified of this transition. I would like to have as much info as I can to help ease that transition.


      Thanks for any help

          Hi Dillon,


          There is no way to update a TC8000 to API 26, you would have a couple of options:

          * If you already use the Play Store: Update your application to target API level 26 but still support a minimum SDK level of 21 (or whatever you have on your TC8000)

          * If you do not currently use the Play Store: Continue to deploy your applications as you are today, e.g. by using StageNow or your EMM as you will not be affected by this change to Google Play
