We’re delighted to announce the launch of Flutter 3 as part of the Google I/O keynote. Flutter 3 completes our roadmap from a mobile-centric to a multiplatform framework, with the availability of macOS and Linux desktop app support, along with improvements to Firebase integration, new productivity and performance features, and support for Apple Silicon
We started Flutter as an attempt to revolutionize app development: combining the iterative development model of the web with hardware-accelerated graphics rendering and pixel-level control that were previously the preserve of games. Over the last four years since Flutter 1.0 beta, we’ve gradually built on these foundations, adding new framework capabilities and new widgets, deeper integration with the underlying platforms, a rich library of packages and many performance and tooling improvements.
As the product has matured, more of you have started to build apps with it. Today there are over 500,000 apps built with Flutter. Analytics from research firms like data.ai, along with public testimonials, show Flutter is used by a broad list of customers in many segments: from social apps like WeChat to finance and banking apps like Betterment and Nubank; from commerce apps like SHEIN and trip.com to lifestyle apps like Fastic and Tabcorp; from companion apps like My BMW to public institutions such as the Brazil government.
Developers tell us that Flutter helps build beautiful apps more quickly for more platforms. In our most recent user study:
In a recent blog post by Sonos discussing their revamped setup experience, they emphasized the second of these:
Today, we’re introducing Flutter 3, which is the culmination of our journey to fill out the platforms supported by Flutter. With Flutter 3, you can build beautiful experiences for six platforms from a single codebase, giving developers unparalleled productivity and enabling startups to bring new ideas to the full addressable market from day one.
In previous releases, we supplemented iOS and Android with web and Windows support, and now Flutter 3 adds stable support for macOS and Linux apps. Adding platform support requires more than rendering pixels: it includes new input and interaction models, compilation and build support, accessibility and internationalization, and platform-specific integration.
On macOS, we’ve invested in supporting both Intel and Apple Silicon, with Universal Binary support that allows apps to package executables that run natively on both architectures. On Linux, Canonical and Google have collaborated to offer a highly-integrated, best-of-breed option for development.
Flutter 3 also improves on many of the fundamentals, with improved performance, Material You support, and productivity updates.
In addition to the work mentioned above, with this version, Flutter is fully native on Apple silicon for development. While Flutter has been compatible with M1-powered Apple devices since their release, Flutter now takes full advantage of Dart’s support for Apple silicon, enabling much faster compilation on M1-powered devices and support for universal binaries for macOS apps.
Our work for Material Design 3 is largely complete in this release, allowing developers to take advantage of an adaptable, cross-platform design system that offers dynamic color schemes and updated visual components.
Flutter is powered by Dart, a high-productivity, portable language for multiplatform development. Our work on Dart in this cycle includes new language features that reduce boilerplate and aid readability, experimental RISC-V support, an upgraded linter, and new documentation. For further details on all the new improvements in Dart 2.17,
Of course, there’s more to building an app than a UI framework. App publishers need a comprehensive suite of tools to help you build, release, and operate your apps, including services like authentication, data storage, cloud functions, and device testing. There are a variety of services that support Flutter, including Sentry, AppWrite, and AWS Amplify.
Today we’re announcing the graduation of Flutter/Firebase integration to a fully-supported core part of the Firebase offering. We’re moving the source code and documentation into the main Firebase repo and site, and you can count on us evolving Firebase support for Flutter in lockstep with Android and iOS.
For most developers, Flutter is an app framework. But there’s also a growing community around casual game development, taking advantage of the hardware-accelerated graphics support provided by Flutter along with open source game engines like Flame. We want to make it easier for casual game developers to get started, so at I/O today we’re announcing the Casual Games Toolkit, which provides a starter kit of templates and best practices along with credits for ads and cloud services.
