Better, faster Android builds

Automated testing, configurable workflows, and pre-installed tools on CircleCI get your Android apps to customers sooner.

Complete control over every Play Store release

Quick and easy setup

CircleCI pre-installs the Android SDK so you don’t have to. Access machine and Docker images with the latest Android SDK and tools like Google Cloud and Ruby for Fastlane pre-installed.

Automated testing

Seamlessly run emulator-based UI tests with our Android machine image. CircleCI automatically builds and tests changes each time new code is pushed to GitHub. Using matrix jobs, Android developers can test on multiple versions of the OS.

Customizable workflows
