Total recall: Autofill Framework and Account Transfer API

Day /  /  RU / For practicing engineers

One of the developers' worst nightmares is when users change their devices, which means: with no favourite settings, logging over and over again, the user can just leave you and set up something else.

There is a silver lining though — now that we have Android O, we've got new tools to make our user feel comfortable:

  • Autofill Framework — automatic filling out user's personal data;
  • Account Transfer — a possibility to Integrate into the system process of data migration between devices.

In this talk, you'll learn the basics of using these tools and the pitfalls you can fall into. Also, we'll share our own experience of these tools' implementation.
