Latest version of cordova-android Ionic

Hi ! :slight_smile:

Why Ionic didn’t install the lastest version of cordova-android please ?

Maybe you can find your answer in the following post:

Ionic never installs cordova-android. If anything, it was cordova that was called by ionic. If your Cordova CLI is out of date, it will also install outdated versions of the platforms.

But you didn’t tell us anything relevant - what version was installed? What is your ionic info output?
