Android mobile SDK release notes

This page contains the Android mobile SDK version 4 release notes. The release notes are broken down in sections to allow for easier consumption. Release notes are additive, which means that to cover all improvements between two defined release states, all individual release notes have to be considered.

The release notes for version 3 of the Android mobile SDK are available in the documentation for Unblu 6.

You must update Unblu Spark before you update the Android mobile SDK. If you don’t, the SDK may not work properly.

The release notes for Unblu Spark and the iOS mobile SDK are published separately.
