Supporting 64-bit on Android

Version 3.3.7 and above no longer uses the .so libraries and these can be removed from your project. SDK 3.3.7 and above supports 64-bit without the .so libraries.

If you are using using earlier 3.x SDK versions you need to add the proper and architectures to your project to support 64-bit.


SDK 2.x:

Please note that updating from our 2.x SDK is not a drag and drop update, but rather includes breaking API and process changes. In order to take advantage of the 3.x SDK, a complete re-integration is necessary. Please review our documentation to get a better idea on what changes will be necessary in your app.

SDK 3.x:

Update the AdColony library referenced by your project following the steps below:


  • Drag and drop the adcolony.jar into your project.

Via Gradle

See our project setup guide, update your ‘dependencies’ configuration within your module’s build.gradle to point to the latest version:

   * Any other dependencies your module has are placed in this dependency configuration
  implementation 'com.adcolony:sdk:4.8.0'
