Starting with Android 9.0 (API level 28), cleartext support is disabled by default.

Option 1 -

Create file res/xml/network_security_config.xml -

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<network-security-config>
<domain-config cleartextTrafficPermitted="true">
<domain includeSubdomains="true">Your URL(ex: 127.0.0.1)</domain>
</domain-config>
</network-security-config>

AndroidManifest.xml -

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest ...>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
<application
...
android:networkSecurityConfig="@xml/network_security_config"
...>
...
</application>
</manifest>

Option 2 -

AndroidManifest.xml -

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest ...>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
<application
...
android:usesCleartextTraffic="true"
...>
...
</application>
</manifest>
