Android Native Development Kit (NDK)

The NDK allows Android application developers to include native code in their Android application packages, compiled as JNI shared libraries.

For what's coming in NDK r21 in 2019Q3, see the r21 hotlist.

For further into the future, see the NDK Roadmap.


This section lists any in-progress features with open discussion bugs. We're still working on these and want to hear from you, so please read the thread and join the discussion if you have anything to add!
