KMM plugin releases

Since KMM is now in Alpha, we are working on stabilizing the KMM plugin for Android Studio and will be regularly releasing new versions that include new features, improvements, and bug fixes.

Ensure that you have the latest version of the KMM plugin!

Update to the new release

Android Studio will suggest updating to a new KMM plugin release as soon as it is available. If you accept the suggestion, it will automatically update the KMM plugin to the latest version. You’ll need to restart Android Studio to complete the plugin installation.

You can check the KMM plugin version and update the plugin manually in Preferences | Plugins.

You need a compatible version of Kotlin for the KMM plugin to work correctly. You can find compatible versions in the release details. You can check your Kotlin version and update it in Preferences | Plugins or in Tools | Kotlin | Configure Plugin Updates.
