+categories: announcements
+tags: news releases
+We would like to announce that `Cordova Android 6.4.0` has been released! 
+Due to the recent changes **Google** made to Android Studio, Cordova Android now requires
that Gradle be installed as a dependency for Android development on all platforms. We will
be removing the code that uses Android Studio as a dependency in the near future. This release
now uses the latest Android Gradle plugin that was released with Android Studio 3.0.
+**Google** has changed the Gradle DSL used and currently support for the Crosswalk WebView
is broken in this version of Cordova as a result.  Unfortunately, since Crosswalk is no longer
supported by the Crosswalk Project, we do not know whether this issue will be fixed.  If you
require support for Crosswalk, we recommend that you continue using cordova-android 6.3.0
at this time and avoid using your project with Android Studio.
+To upgrade:
+    npm install -g cordova
+    cd my_project
+    cordova platform update android@6.4.0
+To add it explicitly:
+    cordova platform add android@6.4.0
+## What's new in Android
+* [CB-13289]( Fixing build problems with Studio
Three, but keeping **Windows** Gradle fix for now, will be deprecated
+* [CB-13289]( Fix test to work with new Google
**Android** Gradle DSL
+* [CB-13499]( Remove duplicate "setting" in
error strings
+* [CB-13406]( Fixed AVD API level comparison
when choosing sub-par API level match. Added tests for the best_image method.
+* [CB-13404]( add **Android**-versions to
bundledDependencies. Ignore best emulator selection when parsed AVD information does not include
API level in the target
