Hi,

I have an native android app which I am planning to move to hybrid. I want to know what all our the limitations of doing so?

Will I loose the playstore downloads and playstore ratings? If yes how can I avoid it

Why do you want to move to a hybrid architecture?

having two apps ios and android and now it's getting difficult to manage both. so that's why planning to shit to hybrid for both the apps ios is already a hybrid app. so I wanted to know that playstore will treat the hybrid app as an update of the old app or will treat it as a fresh app? and what effect will I have on playstore reviews and downloads.

Hybrid apps have long been past their peak time, since there are better approaches to achieving cross-platform compatibility - solutions like Flutter come to mind.

If you release the app under the same ID then it will be considered the same app. What impact that might have on ratings and downloads obviously depends on the overall quality of the app, which -if done well- is independent of its architecture.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
