So you have an Android app on the Google Play store that you haven’t check on for some time, and you just saw that there’s a warning. Oh no.

Also, you had built this app using expo.

If the above two are true, this post is for you.

The warning on the Play Store Console

I promise I won’t waste your time.

The fix is simple.

First, ensure that you have expo-build-properties.

Then, specify the minSdkVersion to a value of 33 (since the warning says the minimum version should be 33).

Rebuild, re-release.

That’s it.

Happy building.
