SDK Archives

This page provides a full list of archived and obsolete SDK releases, including non-current versions of active releases and "early look" versions that were released before Android 1.0. These are provided for informational and archival purposes only.

If you are just starting to develop applications for Android, please download the current Android SDK. With the current Android SDK, you can add any current and previous version of the Android platform as a component and use it for development and testing.

If you already have an Android SDK for platform version 1.6 or newer, then you do not need to install a new SDK—especially not one from this page. You should install older platforms as components of your existing SDK. See Exploring the SDK.

Archived SDKs

The tables below provides Android SDKs that are current in terms of their platform version, but do not provide the latest Android development environment and tools. Instead of downloading one of these, as a separate SDK for each version of the platform, you should instead use the new version-neutral Android SDK to download each version of the Android platfrom as an individual component.

Please download the current Android SDK.

Non-Compatible SDK Releases

The SDKs listed below are "early-look" versions that were released in the year preceding the full release of Android 1.0 in September 2008. Because these early-look SDKs were released before the Android 1.0 API specification was finalized, they do not provide a compliant Android execution environment. Consequently, applications that you develop in these SDKs will not be able to run on any Android-powered devices.

If you have an older application that you built in one of the early-look SDKs, you must migrate it to the Android 1.0 SDK (or later release) before you will be able to deploy it to an Android-powered device. To help with this migration, each SDK package below provides information about API changes from the previous version. You can find the migration information in the documentation included in each SDK package.
