Switch to the Play Referrer API by March 1, 2020

Hello Andromo,

Today I received the following email from Google Play:

"Hello Google Play Developer,

We recently announced that we’ll be deprecating the install_referrer intent broadcast mechanism. Because one or more of your apps uses this intent to track referrals, we wanted to ensure you make the switch before March 1, 2020. After this date, new versions of the Play Store app will no longer broadcast the install_referrer intent after app installs.

Action required

Migrate to the Play Install Referrer API to track your app installs for the following apps and/or games.

Affected apps

and 5 more."

All six apps are recently updated. I have some other apps which are updated at the same time as mentioned above, but they don't seem to be a problem for Google. Please advice how to fix this issue.
