This will be required for new apps in August 2018, and for updates to existing apps in November 2018. Google describes the metadata as a "Play badge of authenticity" it will stick to each app. Starting next year, Google will put its foot down to improve Android security, but it's not really going to be as bad as that sounds. Developers can still keep 32-bit versions of apps on offer for older Android versions but a 64-bit version needs to be present on the Google PlayStore. Google touts this as being a big performance improvement in addition to being more secure.
"Today, over 40 percent of Android devices coming online have 64-bit support, while still maintaining 32-bit compatibility". Starting next year, developers will need to support more recent Android features, and in 2019 64-bit support will be mandatory.

Now the Android Wear app attained 10 Million downloads on Google Play Store.
Prime Video gives you two ways to instantly stream Videos on your Android TV device. Google is sprinkling a "small amount" of security metadata on early 2018 to prove that apps were distributed through the Play Store.
Enforcement of the 64-bit requirement won't go into effect until August 2019.
