Hello Android Developers,
As we approach the end of 2023, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on all that we’ve accomplished together as a community, and send a huge *thank you* for all of your work!
It’s been an incredible year for Android, with many new features and improvements released as part of the platform as well as many new delightful app experiences crafted and delivered by you, all for the benefit of our users across the world. Here are just a few of the highlights:
- The release of feature packed and highly performant Android 14, our most ambitious release to date.
- The incredible momentum on large screens and Wear OS, fueled by hardware innovations of device makers and by the great app experiences you build for users
- The growth of Compose, from being a mobile developer toolkit to Compose Everywhere, helping you build excellent apps for mobile, tablets, wear and TV,
- And the growth of the entire Android Developer community around the world, and the millions of amazing apps you build for users!
I’m so proud of everything we’ve achieved together this year!
Your hard work and dedication continue to make Android the best mobile platform in the world, and I want to thank you for being a part of this community. Your contributions are invaluable, and I’m grateful for your continued support.
Thanks again for all that you do, and we can’t wait to see what you build next year!
