    Btw, do they still ignore the fact that another team in the same company is doing the same thing? Doesn't it make sense to combine the efforts with flutter and somehow blend two systems?

    I would imagine they’re hedging their bets

    They're not doing the exact same thing, and certainly not in the same way!
    Also, Jetpack Compose has many inspiration sources, and Flutter is one of them.

    Also watch android fire side chat. They’ve been asked about that and said they are working with Flutter team to ensure that concepts between compose and flutter are similar to make it easier to go back and forth between them.

    That's where my question is coming from) I've watched the fire side chat, the guy from the audience: — I've asked Flutter team what would be the reason to still use native instead of Flutter? They said none. — Well... we've got Kotlin! As much as I love Kotlin, that's a pretty scary answer for people who want to invest in native for the next few years 🙂.

    But why would you invest in Dart. There are many good languages… but man… Dart!? Why?

    With all that love and community around Kotlin do you really think nobody would write a cross-platform UI library for it? I’d be surprised if we don’t have a competition between such libraries in the future.
