The Google Play Store will require all apps that ship native code (e.g. Fennec and GV-powered browsers like Focus and Fenix) to ship 64-bit (ARM64 and x86-64) builds by August 2019:

https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2017/12/improving-app-security-and-performance.html
Depends on: 1498298

Adding [geckoview:p1] whiteboard label because we must decide whether we want to:

  • Ship x86_64 Fennec and GV before August 1
  • Or stop updating 32-bit x86 Fennec

https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2019/01/get-your-apps-ready-for-64-bit.html

Alias: Fennec-x86-64 → Fennec-x86_64
Summary: Ship x86-64 builds of Fennec in the Google Play Store → Ship x86_64 builds of Fennec in the Google Play Store
Whiteboard: [geckoview:p1]

Adding [geckoview:fenix:p2] because shipping x86_64 Fennec is a prerequisite for shipping x86_64 Fenix builds.

Whiteboard: [geckoview:p1] → [geckoview:fenix:p2]

66=wontfix because we'd like to first publish x86_64 builds in Fennec 67 Nightly (some time after 2019-01-28).

IIUC, Releng just needs to copy the work that was done for ARM64 Fennec in bug 1368484.

x86_64 is now live on Google Play[1]. First served buildId: 20190213102848

Thanks! I see x86_64 Fennec in the Google Play Console alongside x86, armeabi-v7a, and arm64-v8a. I'll be monitoring x86_64 crash reports to see if there are any new x86_64-specific crashes.
