I just downloaded the android studio but the sdk does not allow me to place the min sdk to 22, it forces me to place the 23 according to the library wear-26.1.0
My smartwatch has android 5.1 api 22 and I need to be able to create the app with minsdk 22.
The error is as follows
Manifest merger failed: uses-sdk: minSdkVersion 22 can not be smaller than version 23 declared in library [com.android.support:wear:26.1.0] C: \ Users \ Pet.gradle \ caches \ transforms-1 \ files-1.1 \ wear-26.1.0.aar \ 01466bada77ea7c4693dc210da48fb22 \ AndroidManifest.xml as the library might be using APIs not available in 22
I have already downloaded the sdk 22 from the sdk manager but the same error still appears, I already made cleam and rebuild and nothing.
I read in a forum that it is no longer possible to place minsdk under 23 for the new google update but I do not think so.
