A library that gives you access to the powerful Parse Server backend from your Android app. For more information about Parse and its features, see the website, getting started, and blog.

Getting Started


The Parse Android SDK has the following Android API and Gradle Plugin compatibility.

SDK version Minimum API level Targeting API level Gradle Plugin
1.26 < API 16 API 29 3.6.2
2.0 >= API 16 API 30 4.2.2
2.1 >= API 21 API 31 7.0.3

Add Dependency

Add this in your root build.gradle file (not your module build.gradle file):

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url "" }

Then, add the library to your project build.gradle

ext {
   parseVersion = ""
dependencies {
    implementation "com.github.parse-community.Parse-SDK-Android:parse:$parseVersion"
    // for Google login/signup support (optional)
    implementation "com.github.parse-community.Parse-SDK-Android:google:$parseVersion"
    // for Facebook login/signup support (optional)
    implementation "com.github.parse-community.Parse-SDK-Android:facebook:$parseVersion"
    // for Twitter login/signup support (optional)
    implementation "com.github.parse-community.Parse-SDK-Android:twitter:$parseVersion"
    // for FCM Push support (optional)
    implementation "com.github.parse-community.Parse-SDK-Android:fcm:$parseVersion"
    // for Kotlin extensions support (optional)
    implementation "com.github.parse-community.Parse-SDK-Android:ktx:$parseVersion"
    // for Kotlin coroutines support (optional)
    implementation "com.github.parse-community.Parse-SDK-Android:coroutines:$parseVersion"
    // for RxJava support (optional)
    implementation "com.github.parse-community.Parse-SDK-Android:rxjava:$parseVersion"

replacing with the latest released version (see JitPack badge above).


Initialize Parse in a custom class that extends Application:

import com.parse.Parse;

public class App extends Application {
    public void onCreate() {

      Parse.initialize(new Parse.Configuration.Builder(this)
        // if desired

The custom Application class must be registered in AndroidManifest.xml:


Note that if you are testing with a server using http, you will need to add android:usesCleartextTraffic="true" to your above <application> definition, but you should only do this while testing and should use https for your final product.

See the guide for the rest of the SDK usage.
