Getting rid of 32-bit native library warning

I don't use Android Studio but build my APKs/AABs that use native code manually by running

gradlew build
gradlew bundle

from a command prompt. But whenever I build my app like that, I get this warning:

WARNING:: This app only has 32-bit [armeabi-v7a] native libraries. Beginning August 1, 2019 Google Play store requires that all apps that include native libraries must provide 64-bit versions. For more information, visit

This warning doesn't make any sense at all to me because gradle builds *separate* APKs/AABs for arm7 and arm8 so *of-course* app-arm7-release.apk and app-arm7-release.aab do *not* contain any 64-bit libraries because they are, well, 32-bit. The 64-bit libraries are in the other files, i.e. app-arm8-release.apk and app-arm8-release.aab. So why on earth does gradle nag about this? Is there any way to get rid of this warning? It's really annoying me.

Best regards,

Cannot get rid of this warning if you don't add 64bit architecutre to the build.gradle. Just ignore it, and, you need to make the APK/AAB has contain 64 bit architures to upload your app to console.

Hope that help.
