Migrate existing View-based apps

Jetpack Compose was designed with View interoperability right from the start—you can use Compose within Views, and vice versa. This functionality allows you to adopt Compose in your existing View-based app without having to rewrite it from scratch.

The following pages describe how to integrate Compose with your existing apps:

  • Migration strategy: Learn the strategy to safely and incrementally introduce Compose into your codebase.
  • Interoperability APIs: Learn about Compose's APIs to help you combine Compose with View-based UI.
  • Other considerations: Learn other considerations like theming, architecture, and testing while migrating your View-based app to Compose.


The following samples demonstrate Jetpack Compose and View interoperability:
