Upgrade to Kotlin 1.8.0 or higher

Again-to-home animation milestone

The back-to-home animation is the keystone predictive again animation.

To get this animation, add android:enableOnBackInvokedCallback=true in your AndroidManifest.xml to your root exercise if you’re a multi-activity app (see per-activity opt-in) or on the utility degree if you’re a single-activity app. After this, you’ll see each the back-to-home animation and a cross-task animation the place relevant, that are seen to customers in Android 15+ and behind a developer possibility in Android 13 and 14.

If you’re intercepting again occasions in your root exercise (e.g. MainActivity), you may proceed to take action however you’ll want to make use of supported APIs and also you gained’t get the back-to-home animation. Because of this, we usually advocate you solely intercept again occasions for UI logic; for instance, to point out a dialog asking the person to avoid wasting earlier than they stop.

See the Add support for the predictive back gesture information for extra particulars.

Most materials motions assist predictive again as of 1.12.02-alpha02 or larger, together with MaterialFadeThrough, MaterialSharedAxis and MaterialFade.
