    Fernando's answer: the code will be updated and this option will be removed in the next update, we'll have to drop support for Android 4.3 (not a problem). The next update will be released asap, the rest of the changes are almost ready.

    Same nonsense here from google.

    Actual info:
    "We've detected that your app contains the requestLegacyExternalStorage flag in the manifest file of 1 or more of your app bundles or APKs.Developers with apps on devices running Android 11+ must use Scoped Storage to give users better access control over their device storage. To release your app on Android 11 or newer after May 5th, you must either:

    • Update your app to use more privacy friendly best practices, such as the Storage Access Framework or Media Store API
    • Update your app to declare the All files access (MANAGE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE) permission in the manifest file, and complete the All files access permission declaration in Play Console from May 5th
    • Remove the All files access permission from your app entirely

    For apps targeting Android 11, the requestLegacyExternalStorage flag will be ignored. You must use the All files access permission to retain broad access.
    Apps requesting access to the All files access permission without a permitted use will be removed from Google Play, and you won't be able to publish updates."

    This changes require a full android 11 device, now permission must be in manifest but define until a maxsdkwhich of course end before android 11 or minsdk in case of manage_storage , but old code will be read as it is in runtime, changes that developer must consider

    An application can't use root folders and can't use defined folder, all data must be inside a scope that will be removed when uninstalling, side note if you are planning to keep information in user device must be kept in regular public folders.

    Get folder or file exist as before can be unpredicted in some case when used for root files or folder in root folders

    Any prediction of when the update comes out? Is there a possibility to release the update (even for Steam) before the 5th?

    a lot of people are confused about this messsage. Here is a thread on reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/androiddev/...ning_messages/).

    Answers from google seems to say that if you target api 29 it's ok... But i'm still woried about this deadline of the 5 may.

    We are working on these changes BUT this message is just a warning, please note that you can find and read the new areas where you can save information to external storage. It is highly recommended if your application used external areas to implement a new version using API 29 where you move the information stored in the external storage to public directories or move it to the internal data storage. Remember also, that all data is deleted if the user uninstalls the application/game, so in this case, if you need to keep the data you should save it in a public directory or save it in the cloud.
    Regards,

    I also received such a letter for all my games, although I have 29 APIs. Let's find a solution to this problem as soon as possible! I would not want any problems!
