What should you expect when migrating your Android project to Kotlin 1.7.0?

2 min readSep 7, 2022

Kotlin is the preferred programming language for Android developers. New Kotlin versions are released periodically. As an Android developer, you need to keep your Android project up-to-date in terms of Kotlin version.

Sometimes there are breaking changes i.e warning to a rule become an error. Then your project does not compile any more. If you don’t upgrade to the newer versions periodically, then those breaking changes will accumulate and it will be harder to migrate to the latest version.
