Why Google invests in Flutter, and what it means for app owners?


Victoria Belyaeva


With Flutter, feasible and intuitive cross-platform solutions is no longer a miracle. 

After the launch of Flutter’s second version in 2021, over 400,000 Flutter apps were delivered to consumers and installed on hundreds of millions of devices, ensuring a seamless user experience. Currently, there are more than 700,000 published apps in the Apple Store and Google Play platforms.

So, what makes Flutter stand out, and why does Google bet on it?

Why Google invests in Flutter

The Flutter toolkit

Flutter is an open-source tool kit designed for crafting fast, beautiful, and natively felt cross-platform portable applications targeting mobile, web, and desktop solutions and sharing a single code base. 

There have been a few releases of Flutter:

Flutter advantages

Flutter is fast with hardware-accelerated graphics and pixel-level control over the UI, with intuitive and live coding. 

Flutter benefits:

Flutter is used by Google for a wide array of software program merchandise, and these Flutter advantages just as well make Flutter the best fit for startup businesses.

What is more, FlutterFlow makes it possible to generate clean code and deploy it to online stores or the web in one click

Plus, due to the aforementioned benefits of Flutter apps, it is extremely easy to build the MVP version of the product and have it shipped to the online audience.

Check the blog article What’s New in Flutter 2 to get acquainted with the technical peculiarities of this release.

It may be helpful to visit the What’s new official resource — a part of the Stay up to date section — for the Flutter and Dart update release updates.

Flutter roadmap

Flutter’s Flutter developer roadmap is to transform the world of software engineering. It will focus on:

  • performance
  • quality
  • security
  • features
  • research
  • updates
  • records and patterns enhancements
  • breakthrough graphics performance
  • smooth integration for web and mobile
  • being early to new and emerging architectures
  • ongoing focus on developer experience

The vision for Flutter described in more detail in Flutter Forward video review is going to shed greater light on the Flutter roadmap.

Releasing updates and improvements on a more or less trimestrial basis, the Flutter community and developers want to make certain each and every asked-for feature is being approached.

Google’s plans associated with Flutter

All these Flutter advantages make Flutter come out as a unique, outstanding solution. 

“Here at Google, we’re depending on Flutter, and over a thousand engineers at Google are building apps with Dart and Flutter.”— stated in “Announcing Flutter 2” published on Google Developers blog resource.

Likewise, the major key role of Flutter is proved in What’s next for Flutter: “At Google, too, we’re finding Flutter a valuable tool, enabling teams like Google Classroom to deliver high-quality solutions to mobile and web users…With Flutter, we reduced the code size by 66% for the same functionality… this means less bugs for each platform and less tech debt in the future.” – Kenechi Ufondu, Software Engineer, Google Classroom.

One more quotation should be mentioned from What’s next for Flutter official blog post article: “Our fourth and final area of investment for the future is a continued focus on developer experience, across both Flutter and Dart.”

The goal set in front of Flutter is to be a game changer and to fundamentally alter the way the developers build apps. Now not only the platform itself should be in focus, but rather the experience a software engineer wants to create.

Popular apps like WeChat, Grab, Yandex Go, Nubank, Sonos, Fastic, Betterment, and realtor.com are using Flutter. 


Dart — the programming language Flutter is based on – is a multi-paradigm language, with C-style syntax, which makes it similar to C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, and Ruby. 

Dart is:

  • free
  • open source
  • multi-platform 
  • optimized for UI
  • easy to learn and use, with a familiar syntax

Dart enables software architects to:

  • code efficiently
  • get the advantage of the Hot Reload feature grounded on the just-in-time — JIT — compilation
  • make certain the smooth and seamless app performance is obtained due to AOT — that is ahead-of-time compilation — the compilation of the Dart code into the binary native code directly on the user’s device
  • compile to ARM and x64 machine code for mobile, desktop, and backend/server, or compile to JavaScript for the web
  • craft high-fidelity platform-independent software apps 

Released on October 10, 2011, Dart has passed a few version updates.

With this being said, the dilemma of either having to develop multiple apps for multiple operating systems or opting to trade velocity for portability exists any longer.

With Flutter and Dart, your ideas and your creativity come to the forefront.


What do we know about Fuchsia?

Fuchsia was first found in August 2016 on GitHub by media outlets and got reported as a mysterious source code. 

Developed by Google, Fuchsia is open-source software. It is capability-based with a kernel named Zircon. 

Why is Fuchsia so Important to Google? 

  • Fuchsia is expected to ensure Google’s greater control level over its hardware and software platforms
  • The code comprises its ability to be operated on various devices, such as traffic lights, digital watches, smart mobile phones, and tablets, as well as on desktop personal computers
  • One of the aims is to encourage both the Android and Chrome OS communities to contribute to the platform.


So, here we go, summarizing the facts. 

First is Dart — the programming language designed for crafting platform-independent, fast, and beautiful software applications.

Then, goes the Flutter SDK — the environment where the developer is empowered to deploy Dart and other programming tools for shipping these apps, which are unique and magnificent in design, intuitive, and lovely in use.

And, finally, is Fuchsia — a new platform-independent operating system with the possibility of being run on desktops, tablets, cars, traffic lights, as well as on a variety of other electronic devices of similar kind.

All of these statements are the reasons why Google invests in Flutter. The flexibility of code produced and the programming options themselves expand the sphere of use and therefore the degree of overall influence and significant weight in the technical field.
