Hi Everyone,


We’re excited to announce that Optimizely’s Android SDK is now available in general availability for anyone interested in A/B testing or optimizing their Android app.

We built Optimizely’s Android SDK to support the same set of features as the iOS SDK we released in mid-November, including:


  • Visual Editor. Change your app’s interface on the fly without writing a line of code.
  • Developer Tools. Optimize code-level variables and roll out entirely new features, no matter how custom your app.
  • Instant Rollout. Make visual changes to your app immediately without waiting for App Store or Google Play review.

If you’ve already been using the Android SDK public beta, we highly encourage you to upgrade your SDK to the version 1.0 now. You’ll continue to have access to your beta account until June 30, 2015, at which point you will need to upgrade to version 1.0 or later.


Optimizely Android SDK v1.0 includes:

  • New syntax for code blocks
  • Improved performance for visual experiments
  • Setting an Optimizely ID on a view group allows children to be uniquely referenced
  • Improved edit mode performance
  • Fixed some NPE crashes related to calling Optimizely methods before calling startOptimizely()
  • Other Bug fixes. Full changelog here


If you’re interested in learning more about mobile testing in general, we just published a blog post that explains a few of the top ways iOS and Android teams have used Optimizely to deliver great in-app experiences. Check it out!
