I received this mail today from Google? Is API level 26 or above supported by SC? If No, when shall we be able to update our apps?

"Hello Google Play Developer,

This is a reminder that starting November 1, 2018, updates to apps and games on Google Play will be required to target Android Oreo (API level 26) or higher. After this date, the Play Console will prevent you from submitting new APKs with a targetSdkVersion less than 26.

Configuring your app to target a recent API level ensures that users benefit from significant security and performance improvements, while still allowing your app to run on older Android versions (down to the minSdkVersion).

Action required

Please ensure that your apps are configured to target at least Android 8.0 (API level 26) by November 1, 2018. For technical advice on how to change your app's target API level to meet these requirements, refer to the migration guide.

Affected apps

The apps included below have one or more APKs—in production or testing tracks—that aren't currently targeting API level 26 or higher. Apps are listed with the maximum version code and corresponding targetSdkVersion. If you have more than 20 apps that could be affected in your account, please check the Play Console for a full list.

Thank you for contacting us.

The system was updated to support the Android API level 27 in May 2018, it includes all API levels from 15-27.

You will need to request another build for your application in order to support these API.

Note that an update for all your apps is not required, it is related only to those apps which you want to update earlier.

Consider to open a support ticket, if you will have any related issues or questions.

Best regards,
SC Support Team
