Android CI to build, test, and release Android apps

Build better apps, faster — save time spent on testing, onboarding, and maintenance with automated workflows and triggers.

Android-specific CI solutions

Use Bitrise to build, test, and deploy Android apps with Android CI solutions that help you optimize code signing and more.

Automatic code signing

Sign your Android project with Bitrise’s Android CI solution: Simply upload your release keystore file, add the Android Sign Step to your workflow and you’re done — you can distribute your signed APK anywhere.

UI and unit test on one page

Run your unit and UI tests on Bitrise’s Android CI solution and view your test results in a convenient way with Test Reports. Having all the test results at hand on a single page helps you quickly analyze your app and identify bugs.

Unlimited UI tests

Integrate with Firebase Test Lab’s Virtual Device Testing solution to run UI tests quickly and reliably. Test outputs (video, screenshots, and logs) right on your build’s page. Run your tests in parallel using local emulators with Build Pipelines, or our Flank step for Firebase Test Lab.

The right compute options for the task

Run each Bitrise Android build on a clean virtual machine, which is discarded the moment your build is finished. Bitrise virtual machines are pre-installed with all the important tools for your Android CI. Use Docker and Linux as you would on your own computer and run any custom script you want.

Android Security with no compromise

Sit back and relax – your data is safe with Bitrise.

Secret environment variables

Secrets are stored encrypted and are only exposed during build or when you’d like to reveal them on the UI. Your credentials and API keys for connected services are safe with Bitrise.

Make secrets & files protected

You can set any secret env or file — such as a provisioning profile, certificate, or keystore — as protected. Protected secrets cannot be revealed on the UI and such files cannot be downloaded by anyone from your team.

Approval for pull request builds

Anyone can open a pull request from a fork in an open-source project — but you might not want every single PR to start a build on Bitrise’s Android CI solution. Set up your app to require manual approval from owners or admins before starting a pull request build.

Android Continuous Integration

Cross-platform and third-party support, automated workflow configuration, custom plans — you name it, the Bitrise Android CI solution has it.

Automatic Android workflow configuration

The Bitrise project scanner will detect the technology used in your Android app and automatically configure your initial Android workflow to get you up and running in minutes. From there, rapidly iterate and improve with Bitrise’s Android CI solution.

350+ integrations

Support for all third-party services that are used in Android development, including dependency managers such as CocoaPods, or automation tools such as Fastlane. Missing anything? Request or build it yourself!

Full support for cross-platform solutions

Out-of-the-box support for the major cross-platform frameworks used to create Android apps, such as React Native, Flutter, Ionic, or Cordova. Use the same Workflow for both the Android and Android projects of your cross-platform apps.

Full enterprise-ready feature set

Android CI that meets your enterprise's needs: Easy team- and organization management and SAML Single Sign-On which supports most major identity providers, custom Enterprise plans with a fully customized build environment, and a Pay-as-you-Build option.

Android Continuous Deployment

Bitrise’s Android CI solution saves engineering time by automating releases so you can focus on doing impactful work.

Deploy to testers using Android CI

Send public install links to testers with the Deploy to Step so you can install and test apps on their devices. For external testing, submit your app to Google Play Console with the preferred track selected in our Google Play Deploy Step.

Send your apps straight to Google Play Store

You can automatically send your signed apps to the Google Play Store: Bitrise stores your credentials in a securely encrypted format, and automatically submit them for review and release them once the app is built. All you need is a single Step to do all that!

Deploy to third parties

If you’re already using a service for deployment, fear not, you can keep using that. Appaloosa, DeployGate,, and many more — Bitrise has all your beloved services integrated with its Android CI solution.

The best Android integrations and add-ons

Integrate Bitrise’s Android CI solution with all the tools you love and use for testing, distribution, and notification to build better, faster Android apps.
