[url_launcher][Android] forced - requires android SDK version 33

This issue has been tracked since 2022-11-24.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Added url_launcher: ^6.1.6 to my yaml
  2. Added a button that sends the user to a pdf
  3. Trying to compile in a emulated android phone with sdk 31


Expected results:
https://pub.dev/packages/url_launcher indicates that it should work on sdk 16+

Actual results:
Works only on sdk 33, tested on sdk 33 and works fine, anything else we get an error.

You are conflating compileSdkVersion and minSdkVersion. The plugin continues to support devices running SDK 16 and higher, your app just has to use a compileSdkVersion of 33+ when building. Almost all plugins (and apps) have a higher compileSdkVersion than minSdkVersion.

Closing as this is the expected behavior.
