I'm considering buying a Pixel 4a and installing #CalyxOS on it. I'm a bit concerned, though, that long-term it's not going to do what I need as #Google is moving away from using APKs in favor of their Android App Bundle (AAB) "solution". I worry that developers will abandon APKs altogether instead of making both #AAB and #APK versions of apps. AAB apps can only be installed via the Google Play Store.


@dallin I actually didn't even know that was a thing. I think this makes things like the Librem 5 a much bigger deal than it already was. That is a really messed up move to make on the part of Google. I need to look into that. I develop for Android, and I must have missed the announcement of this.
