Qt for Android enables you to develop Qt applications for Android devices, and supports a wide range of features and use-cases.

To download and install Qt for Android, follow the instructions on the Getting Started with Qt for Android page. To build Qt from source, see Building from Source.

Supported Configurations

The following development environments and target system configurations are supported in Qt 6.5:

The following configurations are supported in this Qt release:
