  • Note: Example compilable with XCode 12.1 & Flutter 1.22.3.


Ensure in your Podfile you have an entry like below declaring platform of 11.0 or above.

platform :ios, '11.0'


Add NSCameraUsageDescription and NSMicrophoneUsageDescription to your Info.plist.

<string>$(PRODUCT_NAME) MyApp needs access to your camera for meetings.</string>
<string>$(PRODUCT_NAME) MyApp needs access to your microphone for meetings.</string>



Set dependencies of build tools gradle to minimum 3.6.3:

dependencies {
    classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.6.3' <!-- Upgrade this -->
    classpath "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:$kotlin_version"

Set distribution gradle wrapper to minimum 5.6.4.

distributionUrl=https\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-5.6.4-all.zip <!-- Upgrade this -->

Add Java 1.8 compatibility support to your project by adding the following lines into your build.gradle file:

compileOptions {
    sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
    targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8


Jitsi Meet's SDK AndroidManifest.xml will conflict with your project, namely the application:label field. To counter that, go into android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml and add the tools library and tools:replace="android:label" to the application tag.

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"> <!-- Add this -->
        android:label="My Application"

Minimum SDK Version 23

Update your minimum sdk version to 23 in android/app/build.gradle

defaultConfig {
    applicationId "com.ekodemy.eko_jitsi_example"
    minSdkVersion 23 //Required for Jitsi
    targetSdkVersion 28
    versionCode flutterVersionCode.toInteger()
    versionName flutterVersionName


Jitsi's SDK enables proguard, but without a proguard-rules.pro file, your release apk build will be missing the Flutter Wrapper as well as react-native code. In your Flutter project's android/app/build.gradle file, add proguard support

buildTypes {
    release {
        // TODO: Add your own signing config for the release build.
        // Signing with the debug keys for now, so `flutter run --release` works.
        signingConfig signingConfigs.debug
        // Add below 3 lines for proguard
        minifyEnabled true
        useProguard true
        proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'

Then add a file in the same directory called proguard-rules.pro. See the example app's proguard-rules.pro file to know what to paste in.

If you do not create the proguard-rules.pro file, then your app will crash when you try to join a meeting or the meeting screen tries to open but closes immediately. You will see one of the below errors in logcat.

Join A Meeting

_joinMeeting() async {
    try {

      await JitsiMeet.joinMeeting(options);
    } catch (error) {
      debugPrint("error: $error");


Field Required Default Description
room Yes N/A Unique room name that will be appended to serverURL. Valid characters: alphanumeric, dashes, and underscores.

userAvatarURL N/A none Not yet implemented. User's avatar URL.
token N/A none JWT token used for authentication.
featureFlags No see below Map of feature flags and their values (true/false), used to enable/disable features of the Jitsi Meet SDK


Feature flags allow you to enable or disable any feature of the Jitsi Meet SDK.
If you don't provide any flag to JitsiMeetingOptions, default values will be used.
If you don't provide a flag in featureFlags in JitsiMeetingOptions, its default value will be used.
We are using the official list of flags, taken from the Jitsi Meet repository

Flag Default (Android) Default (iOS) Description
ADD_PEOPLE_ENABLED true true Enable the blue button "Add people", showing up when you are alone in a call. Requires flag INVITE_ENABLED to work.
CALENDAR_ENABLED true auto Enable calendar integration.
CALL_INTEGRATION_ENABLED true true Enable call integration (CallKit on iOS, ConnectionService on Android). SEE REMARK BELOW
CLOSE_CAPTIONS_ENABLED true true Enable close captions (subtitles) option in menu.
CHAT_ENABLED true true Enable chat (button and feature).
INVITE_ENABLED true true Enable invite option in menu.
IOS_RECORDING_ENABLED N/A false Enable recording in iOS.
LIVE_STREAMING_ENABLED auto auto Enable live-streaming option in menu.
MEETING_NAME_ENABLED true true Display meeting name.
MEETING_PASSWORD_ENABLED true true Display meeting password option in menu (if a meeting has a password set, the dialog will still show up).
PIP_ENABLED auto auto Enable Picture-in-Picture mode.

RECORDING_ENABLED auto N/A Enable recording option in menu.
TILE_VIEW_ENABLED true true Enable tile view option in menu.

REMARK about Call integration Call integration on Android (known as ConnectionService) has been disabled on the official Jitsi Meet app because it creates a lot of issues. You should disable it too to avoid these issues.


Field Type Description
isSuccess bool Success indicator.
message String Success message or error as a String.
error dynamic Optional, only exists if isSuccess is false. The error object.

Listening to Meeting Events

Events supported

Name Description
onConferenceWillJoin Meeting is loading.
onConferenceJoined User has joined meeting.
onConferenceTerminated User has exited the conference.
onError Error has occurred with listening to meeting events.

Per Meeting Events

To listen to meeting events per meeting, pass in a JitsiMeetingListener in joinMeeting. The listener will automatically be removed when an
onConferenceTerminated event is fired.

await JitsiMeet.joinMeeting(options,
  listener: JitsiMeetingListener(onConferenceWillJoin: ({message}) {
    debugPrint("${options.room} will join with message: $message");
  }, onConferenceJoined: ({message}) {
    debugPrint("${options.room} joined with message: $message");
  }, onConferenceTerminated: ({message}) {
    debugPrint("${options.room} terminated with message: $message");

Global Meeting Events

To listen to global meeting events, simply add a JitsiMeetListener with
JitsiMeet.addListener(myListener). You can remove listeners using
JitsiMeet.removeListener(listener) or JitsiMeet.removeAllListeners().

void initState() {
    onConferenceWillJoin: _onConferenceWillJoin,
    onConferenceJoined: _onConferenceJoined,
    onConferenceTerminated: _onConferenceTerminated,
    onError: _onError));

void dispose() {

_onConferenceWillJoin({message}) {
  debugPrint("_onConferenceWillJoin broadcasted");

_onConferenceJoined({message}) {
  debugPrint("_onConferenceJoined broadcasted");

_onConferenceTerminated({message}) {
  debugPrint("_onConferenceTerminated broadcasted");

_onError(error) {
  debugPrint("_onError broadcasted");

Closing a Meeting Programmatically



Send a pull request with as much information as possible clearly describing the issue or feature. Keep changes small and for one issue at a time.

Feature Requests

First, this plugin uses Jitsi Meet's mobile SDK, so if their SDK does not support a feature, this plugin will probably not be able to do so either. Check if Jitsi Meet supports your requests. If not, open a feature request with Jitsi Meet team rather than here.

If the new feature is available in Jitsi Meet's SDK, but not available in this plugin, or the new feature is unrelated to the SDK, open a request with the following template:

New Feature Request

Use case: Describe the use case for the feature request, from a user or 
developer point of view. For example, "As a user, I would like to be able
to close the meeting using a voice command." or "As a developer, I would like
to detect when a user winks." Include as much detail as possible.

Include examples, like screenshots, UX design, story boards, another app or code
of what the feature could look like.
