Smile Identity


What Android versions does the SDK support?

  • Our library supports minimum API level 15 (Android 4.0.3)
  • When using AndroidX maximum supported API level is 32 (Android 12)

Why is the SDK so large?

The Smile SDK is large on file however it is split into 4 main android ABIs as listed here. The end user will not download the whole SDK but they will end up downloading only what their phone needs, so whilst your apk will be large on file it's not what the end user will end up downloading.
You can look more on how this works here if you are using apks and here if you are using an app bundle
and it is important to make sure if you are having issues that device's CPU is in one of the following categories
  • arm64-v8a
  • armabi-v7a
  • x86
  • x86_64
