    L Lewis Fletcher posted in Waiting for API Level 33 .

    It's important to note that while API Level 33 is a requirement for new apps on the Google Play Store, existing apps are not required to immediately update to this API level. Developers are encouraged to update their apps to the latest API level as soon as possible to take advantage of the latest features and optimizations, but there is typically a grace period during which apps can continue to use older API levels.

    I suggest keeping an eye on the official Android Developers Blog and other Android developer resources for updates on when the new API Level 33 will be released.

    It depends on the type of app being created by Website2APK.

    If the app being created is a standard Android app with a graphical user interface (GUI) designed for phones or tablets, it may not be fully optimized or compatible for use on an Android TV environment.

    However, if the website being converted is designed with responsive web design principles and the resulting app is a Progressive Web App (PWA), it may work well on Android TV, as PWAs are designed to work across multiple platforms and screen sizes.

    It's important to keep in mind that some Android TV devices may have limited processing power or different screen resolutions compared to phones or tablets, so it's important to test the app on an Android TV device before publishing it to ensure that it works properly and provides a good user experience.

    To open a link outside of your application, you can use an intent with the ACTION_VIEW action and a URI pointing to the destination application. In your case, to open a link in the Play Store app, you can use the URI "market://details?id=[package_name]" where [package_name] is the package name of the app you want to open in the Play Store.

    Here's an example of how to open a link in the Play Store app:

    Copy code
    Uri uri = Uri.parse("market://details?id=com.example.package");
    Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, uri);
    In this example, "com.example.package" is the package name of the app you want to open in the Play Store. When you call startActivity() with this intent, the Play Store app will be launched and the app's details page will be displayed.

    I hope this helps!
