Join here:

Android 11 is just around the corner and we are excited to share with you all that we learned so far while testing some of the new features and API.

Join us on July 15th to talk about

  • IME animations
  • MotionLayout and editor
  • New development tools.

We will be trying out a new tool for this meetup to allow for smaller breakout sessions and ease discussions between us all before and after the talks. Presentations will be shorter in time to allow for more questions in the split groups. So come prepared with your questions and we will do our best to answer all of them.

IME Animations

In this talk we will talk about IME Animations introduced in Android 11. It is a new set of APIs which let’s you synchronize your app’s content with the IME (input method editor, aka soft keyboard) and system bars as they animate on/off screen, making it much easier to create natural, and intuitive IME transitions.
