Config Infrastructure

The Config Infrastructure module contains the infrastructure code that enables the platform and modules to use feature flags. This code currently exists in frameworks/base. No new features are planned for Android 14.


  • Quicker iteration of the infrastructure code. Platform and Mainline module developers benefit from better and more functionality sooner.
  • A uniform solution for feature flag functionality.
  • New features can reach more devices. For example, work done in the Android 15 (AOSP experimental) timeframe can be applied to 14 devices even before OTAs.

Module boundary

For Android 14, we're moving frameworks/base/core/java/android/provider/ (and closely related classes) to this module. We also plan to move configuration persistence logic to this module.

Package format

The Config Infrastructure module is in APEX format.




You can't customize this module.
