Migrating Apps to Android P

Android P (API level P) introduces behavior changes as well as new features and APIs that you can take advantage of in your apps. This document gives you an overview of the steps to migrate your apps to Android P across two key phases:

  1. Ensure compatibility with Android P
    Verify that your app is fully functional on the new version of the platform. At this stage, you do not use new APIs or change your app’s targetSdkVersion, but minor changes might be necessary.
  2. Update your target version and use Android P features
    When you are ready to take advantage of the new features of the platform, update your targetSdkVersion to P, verify the app continues to function as expected, and then begin using new APIs.
