  • Note: Example compilable with XCode 12.2 & Flutter 1.22.4.


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

platform :ios, '11.0'


post_install do |installer|
  installer.pods_project.targets.each do |target|
    target.build_configurations.each do |config|
      config.build_settings['ENABLE_BITCODE'] = 'NO'


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 -->


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.gunschu.jitsi_meet_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.

To implement you need to include Jitsi Js library in the index.html of web section

<script src="https://meet.jit.si/external_api.js" type="application/javascript"></script>


  <!-- This script installs service_worker.js to provide PWA functionality to
       application. For more information, see:
       https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/primers/service-workers -->
    if ('serviceWorker' in navigator) {
      window.addEventListener('load', function () {
  <script src="https://meet.jit.si/external_api.js" type="application/javascript"></script>
  <script src="main.dart.js" type="application/javascript"></script>

Note See usage example in jitsi_meet plugin

_joinMeeting() async {
    try {
	  FeatureFlag featureFlag = FeatureFlag();
	  featureFlag.welcomePageEnabled = false;
	  featureFlag.resolution = FeatureFlagVideoResolution.MD_RESOLUTION; // Limit video resolution to 360p
      var options = JitsiMeetingOptions()
        ..room = "myroom" // Required, spaces will be trimmed
        ..serverURL = "https://someHost.com"

        ..audioMuted = true
        ..videoMuted = true
        ..featureFlag = featureFlag;

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

We are using the official list of flags, taken from the Jitsi Meet repository

Listening to Meeting Events

Events supported

Name Description
onConferenceWillJoin Meeting is loading.
onConferenceJoined User has joined meeting.
onConferenceTerminated User has exited the conference.
onPictureInPictureWillEnter User entered PIP mode.
onPictureInPictureTerminated User exited PIP mode.
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: $message");
  }, onPictureInPictureWillEnter: ({message}) {
	debugPrint("${options.room} entered PIP mode with message: $message");
  }, onPictureInPictureTerminated: ({message}) {
	debugPrint("${options.room} exited PIP mode 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,
    onPictureInPictureWillEnter: _onPictureInPictureWillEnter,
    onPictureInPictureTerminated: _onPictureInPictureTerminated,
    onError: _onError));

void dispose() {

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

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

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

_onPictureInPictureWillEnter({message}) {
debugPrint("_onPictureInPictureWillEnter broadcasted with message: $message");

_onPictureInPictureTerminated({message}) {
debugPrint("_onPictureInPictureTerminated broadcasted with message: $message");

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