Google confirms Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are the first Android phones to support 64-bit apps.
If Android phones support 64-bit apps, it helps to drop OS support for 32-bit apps. so that it reduces RAM usage, improves performance and security.
Google made the move with Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, and over time, expects all devices to switch to 64-bit configuration.
64-bit apps can address more memory than 32-bit apps, so they can be more memory intensive.
Advantages of 64-bit apps over 32-bit apps
64-bit apps can take advantage of more CPU cores than 32-bit apps, so they can be more CPU intensive.
64-bit apps can address more memory than 32-bit apps, making them ideal for large applications such as video editing apps and high-end games.
64-bit apps can take advantage of the extra registers available on 64-bit processors, resulting in faster performance.
64-bit apps can make use of the extra capabilities of 64-bit processors, such as support for larger instruction sets and data types.
64-bit apps can be more resistant to security exploits (more security), due to the increased address space and improved processor capabilities.
