By the end of 2019, Google Play Protect will start warning users if they install an app or update one that supports Android version below Android 8.0 Oreo. This will be notified via a warning which will pop-up with the message that the app could be unsafe. August onwards, the new apps will start getting warning prompts during installation, if they do not target at least Android 8.0 Oreo.

The report further states that from August onwards, the new apps will start getting warning prompts during installation, if they do not target at least Android 8.0 Oreo.

In November, new versions of existing apps will start prompting warnings during installation if they do not move their support levels to Android Oreo or higher. And post 2020 onwards, Google will start updating its API level requirement annually.
