Netflix Chooses Kotlin Multiplatform to Power Android and iOS Studio Mobile Apps

Netflix is the 1st FAANG org to put Kotlin Multiplatform (KMP) into production. The team is using KMP to innovate in the physical production of Film & TV.

Netflix is the first FAANG company to publicly adopt Kotlin Multiplatform (KMP) and put it into production. The team is using KMP and mobile technologies to innovate in the physical production of Film and TV.

Netflix writes in the announcement post,

Kotlin Multiplatform approaches cross-platform mobile development differently from some well known technologies in the space. Where other technologies abstract away or completely replace platform specific app development, Kotlin Multiplatform is complementary to existing platform specific technologies and is geared towards replacing platform agnostic business logic. It’s a new tool in the toolbox as opposed to replacing the toolbox.

For our #TouchlabShare podcast we spoke about this latest development and why it’s an important inflection moment for KMP that Netflix is using the framework.
