Target API level requirements from August 2018

I do receive the following warning message when setting up a new Android release in the playstore:


Your app currently targets API level 24 and must target at least API level 26 to ensure it is built on the latest APIs optimized for security and performance.

From August 2018, new apps must target at least Android 8.0 (API level 26).
From November 2018, app updates must target Android 8.0 (API level 26).


Change your app's target API level. Learn how.

Will this be taken care of, soon?
When can we expect the support of Android 8?

Thank you in advance.
