On the 3rd of March, Google held the Flutter Engage Event, where we were introduced to the most updated version of Google’s renowned mobile app development software, Flutter 2.0. A successor of software tool kit Flutter, the Flutter 2.0 version is open-source software that allows developers to create viable native-looking mobile apps for Android, iOS, and Windows using a single code base.
Showing the prowess of its capability, Flutter is used by millions of users worldwide as already 150,000 Flutter-powered apps have been published on the Play Store. Some of the notable mentions of Flutter-based apps include Alibaba, Toyota, Amazon, Microsoft, and Square, ranking it the second most popular cross-platform mobile framework used by developers worldwide.
The platform has also gained immense popularity for its powerful and native-looking performance. TechAhead, a top mobile app development company, is leveraging the power of Flutter to serve major industries such as healthcare, IT education, banking, and consumer discretionary.
With an overwhelming response from its beta version, Google was more than happy to announce the new patch of Flutter 2.0. Let us read more to find out what Flutter 2.0 has in store for us.

Things Flutter 2.0 Can Do

Flutter 2.0 uses Dart and allows developers to use the same code base for building an app for both Android and iOS devices, thus ensuring fast processing time.
- Easy Modification
Flutter offers an opportunity to access customizable widgets, which can be easily added or modified with a pre-existing application.

Without writing thousands of coding lines for both iOS and Android themes, Flutter 2.0 removes the developers’ technical debt and helps them write code only once for separate application platforms.
- In-built bug rectification
Flutter 2.0 is packed with a new feature called ‘Hot Reload’ that reduces testing, helps in patching bugs, and reduces your mobile app’s development lifecycle.
- Customizable as per your needs
Flutter manages to stay ahead in the industry due to its widget-based UI framework that delivers vibrant features (buttons, texts, sliders, and inputs) and customize your app as the need arises.
- Backed by Google
Being backed by Google, every mobile app developed using Flutter comes with lifetime support from Google that is itself an assurance to all mobile app functionalities and expectations.
