Android needs 64 bit builds

@Monte. I only see Atom x64 ARM for Android 7.1.1 in the SDK list in 
Android Studio. For all the higher Android versions i only see x86 and 
no ARM. I don't know if there are phones sold which have Android 8.x.x 
based on ARMx64. Do you know any details?

@Ralph, i did not see that (the different builds) yet in the Play 
Developer Console. Or is it only available when you use the signing 
which is offered by Google? (upload and download there signature 
etcetera) It is also where your APK can be decreased in size, but i 
don't think it is for builds outside Android Studio? Any experience with 
that?


Thanks,

Jerry
