How to set API 30 (Android)

I want to know how to set max API 30 (android) ?

We had to do this the other day to submit a new app to google app store…


	<engine name="android" spec="10.0.1" />`

to your config.xml

You’ll also probably need to set

  "androidPackageType": "bundle"

in the voltbuilder.json file



Nick’s right- add the engine line to config.xml.

The Android API version is set by the cordova-android version. Recently (in the past 2 weeks) Cordova added support for API 30. The default version of cordova-android is still 9.0.0, which uses API 29. The engine line overrides that. We expect Cordova to make it the default soon.

androidPackageType is needed if you are building for Google Play Store release. Here’s some more info.

You can see which API version is being used in the log:

Using cordova-fetch for cordova-android@10.0.1
