Learn more about the solution: https://www.zego.im

🚀 Please use the brand new ZegoExpressEngine Flutter SDK

🌞 The new redesigned API is easier to use, updated in sync with the ZEGO native SDK, and has more complete functions!

1️⃣ Download and Install Flutter

Flutter Get Started

2️⃣ Configuration development environment

  • Android Studio: Preferences -> Plugins, search for the Flutter plugin to download, configure the first step to download the Flutter SDK path in the plugin.

  • VS Code: Search for the Flutter extension in the app store and download

After configuring the flutter environment in any of the above development environments, execute the flutter doctor on the command line and complete the related undownloaded dependencies according to the prompts.

3️⃣ Apply for ZEGO AppID

Log in to ZEGO Official Website to register an account, select a scenario according to your actual business needs, and obtain AppID and App Sign for initializing the SDK.

4️⃣ Import zegoliveroom_plugin

Open the pubspec.yaml in the project and add the zegoliveroom_plugin dependency:

    sdk: flutter

  zegoliveroom_plugin: ^1.4.0
  • Depends on git

    sdk: flutter

      url: git://github.com/zegoim/zego-flutter-sdk.git
      ref: master

After saving the file, execute flutter pub get

5️⃣ Add device permissions


Open the file app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml, and add the following contents:

Add Android Privacy

    <!-- Permissions required by the SDK -->
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
    <!-- Permissions required by the App -->
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WAKE_LOCK" />

        android:required="true" />

    <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera" />
    <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera.autofocus" />

Note: Because Android 6.0 requires dynamic permissions for some of the more important permissions, you cannot apply for static permissions only through the AndroidMainfest.xml file. Therefore, you need to refer to the following code (requestPermissions is the Activity method)

String[] permissionNeeded = {

    if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, "android.permission.CAMERA") != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED ||
        ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, "android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO") != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
        requestPermissions(permissionNeeded, 101);


Choose the option TARGETS -> Info -> Custom iOS Target Properties

Add iOS Privacy

Click the + Add button to add camera and microphone permissions.

  1. Privacy - Camera Usage Description

  2. Privacy - Microphone Usage Description

After adding permissions, it will be as shown:

Add iOS Privacy Done

If you use Platform View, you need to add an additional description for iOS, refer to FAQ-3

6️⃣ Init SDK

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:zegoliveroom_plugin/zegoliveroom_plugin.dart';

void main() => runApp(new MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  _MyAppState createState() => new _MyAppState();

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {

  // Fill in the AppID actually obtained from the official website
  final int appID = 00000000;
  // Fill in the AppSign actually obtained from the official website
  final String appSign = '0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,'

  String version = '';

  void initState() {

    // get SDK version
    ZegoLiveRoomPlugin.getSdkVersion().then((ver) {

        version = ver;


    // init SDK
    ZegoLiveRoomPlugin.initSDK(appID, appSign);

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: const Text('Zego Plugin example app'),
        body: Center(
          child: Text('Version: $version'),

8️⃣ FAQ

1. Solve the problem of compiling errors of ZegoLiveRoomApi-AudioIO and audio_in_output modules on iOS platform

Open the iOS project file Runner. xcworkspace -> Build Settings, change Compile Sources As to Objective-C++, recompile.

2. iOS compiler error: ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64

Compilation with the simulator is not supported, please use real device debugging for best results.

3. iOS uses Platform View error: [VERBOSE-2:platform_view_layer.cc(28)] Trying to embed a platform view but the PaintContext does not support embedding

Open the iOS project that requires Platform View and add the field io.flutter.embedded_views_preview to Info.plist with a value of YES.

4. fatal error: lipo: -extract armv7 specified but fat file: ... does not contain that architecture

Usually occurs when switching iOS devices, which can be resolved by deleting the "flutter-project-path/build/" and "flutter-project-path/ios/DerivedData/" directories.

5. Android building release crashes with NoClassDefFoundError when flutter is upgraded to 1.10 or above

Flutter is enabled obfuscation by default in version 1.10 or above. Please add the following line in app/proguard-rules.pro to prevent the Zego SDK obfuscation.
