Hi @bnfmeetings,

Thanks for using Zoom SDK. The Ionic SDK contains both Android SDK and the iOS SDK. If your app is only available on Android, you may delete the iOS SDK in the plugin library folder. For Android SDK, you may also configure the gradle file and add abiFilter to compile with the CPU ABI that you supports.
