Qt for Android

Qt for Android enables you to develop Qt applications for Android devices, and supports a wide range of features and use-cases.

To start your Qt for Android application, download and install Qt for Android and use the Qt Creator IDE, follow the instructions on the Getting Started with Qt for Android page.

If you have an existing Android application try Qt's plugin for Google's Android Studio. Find it on the IntelliJ marketplace to download. The plugin allows you use the Qt Quick View Android Class to add Qt Quick content to your Android app as a view.

To build Qt from source, see Building from Source.

Supported Configurations

The following configurations are supported in this Qt release:

Android 8.0 (API 26) to 14 (API 34)arm64-v8a, x86_64, x86, and armeabi-v7aClang 17.0.2 (NDK r26b or 26.1.10909125)JDK 17Gradle 8.3 and AGP 7.4.1Multi-ABI APKs and AABs
