BOOM! Here comes the most awaited stable releases of the platform after the Flutter 1.0 release almost two years ago. Flutter 2.0! Flutter 1.0 only works on mobile operating systems. But in the new release, you can use the same codebase in five different operating systems: iOS, Android, Linux, macOS & Windows. The primary goal behind releasing an updated version of Flutter is to enable developers to build an application that gives a supreme experience. Though, with the new release community changes from Devtools to FlutterDevtools. 

What does Flutter 2.0 have, that Flutter 1.0 doesn’t?

It is obvious to do some addition in the existing version. The main objective behind this is to facilitate developers to create fast & portable applications for any platform. Flutter 2.0 allows you to sense beautiful experiences where your brand and design come to the forefront. In a few words, we can say that Flutter 1.0 is a mobile framework where Flutter 2.0 is a portable framework. There are more than 1,50,000 Flutter apps available in the play store. It seems that Flutter 2.0 will bring this number to a high-level pretty easily. 

Tech giant- Google has already started using Flutter

Talk about next-generation & don’t have Google’s name in it? It is impossible. Tons of engineers in Google are using Dart & Flutter to build beautiful apps. Although, many of them are already shipping as well. A few months ago, Google pay shifted to Flutter. It already sees some magical numbers in productivity & quality. Google pay states that their developers have become more efficient across both iOS & android. Apart from Google pay, many other Google applications like Google One, Family link, G-nest hub, Stadia, Google analytics, Cloud search, google Admob- have already started using Flutter.

What’s new in Flutter 2.0?

Flutter 2.0 is launched by Google. It is well-equipped with extraordinary features & fixes. There are many new features to introduce in Flutter. Here we present some remarkable new updates of Flutter 2.0: 

Immense support to the Web 

There are several ways where Flutter 2.0 is helping web apps to evolve. Flutter 2.0 offers an App-oriented framework that includes richer platform APIs. Here we show three web-related scenarios where Flutter 2.0 assist more: 

  • Progressive web apps (WPA)

Apps that bind the web’s reach with the capabilities of the desktop apps. 

  • Single-page applications ( SPA)

In this scenario, it generally carries the load on time & circulates data around the internet services. 

  • Bring existing Flutter apps to the web

It’s more about availing the app across all the platforms. It enables code sharing for the above experiences. 

  • Sound Null Safety 

At this point, Dart comes into the picture. This feature is nothing but a sound that enables compiler optimizations. In simple words, if the typing system dictates that something isn’t null, then that thing never be null. This feature is not a breaking change, you can add it to your code as per your needs. 

  • Dart is a secret ingredient for Flutter portability

Dart is a client-optimized programming language. It is Google’s programming language that is used to code beautiful Flutter apps. From platform portability to devices embedded in Flutter, all credit goes to Dart. It comes with compilers that generate high-quality performance in mobile, desktop as well as web. Another addon of writing in Dart is Iterative development with stateful hot reload on desktop and mobile. Along with using the same codebase in all platforms, Flutter 2.0 provides Google-class performance across all the platforms. The recent release of Flutter includes stable implementation of FFI. Stable implementation of FFI enables the writing of high-performance code that interoperates with C-based APIs. 

  • Expanding vision in every field 

As we know, the initial version of Flutter only created mobile apps. Now with Flutter 2.0, you can use the same code for creating an app in iOS, Android, macOS, Linux & Windows. New releases come with a wider range of vision. Flutter 2.0 is targeting browsers like Chrome, Edge, Firefox & Safari. As a framework you think about its implementation in your mobile phone, right? But, it is stretched out by embedded in cars, TVs, Smart home-appliances & foldable devices. 

  • Big Names From Big Domains that already using Flutter 

A company named Canonical ( Publisher of Ubuntu) is partnering with Google to bring Flutter to the desktop. Canonical presents an app that was rewritten with Flutter. So, after a new release, they can expect that they can deliver some rock-solid yet beautifying apps using Flutter. Canonical decided to make Flutter a default choice for future apps created by Canonical. Windows is also in the queue to expand its support to Flutter. Especially after new releases of Flutter, Microsoft launched contributions to Flutter engines that enable Flutter in foldable devices. Toyota- A well-known automaker, tries their opportunities to bring Flutter to the vehicles. They are more ambitious about providing the unique needs of an in-vehicle system. In an easy way, Flutter’s new release covers almost every embedded device. 

So, here’s all the things related to the new release of Flutter. The new update of Flutter is now available. Many of you have started using it as well. There are several new features & their utmost benefits. Which change or Feature Add-on you like the most in Flutter 2.0?
