Android Jetpack Compose – Display Current Internet Connection Type
Many times in android applications it is mandatory to check the user’s mobile connectivity to the internet whether it may be through mobile data or using Wi-Fi so that the app will work fine with different internet connectivity sources. In this article, we will be building a simple application in which we will be checking the real-time connection type of android devices using Jetpack Compose. A sample video is given below to get an idea about what we are going to do in this article.
Step by Step Implementation
Step 1: Create a New Project in Android Studio
To create a new project in Android Studio please refer to How to Create/Start a New Project in Android Studio. While choosing the template, select Empty Compose Activity. If you do not find this template, try upgrading the Android Studio to the latest version. We demonstrated the application in Kotlin, so make sure you select Kotlin as the primary language while creating a New Project.
Step 2: Adding a new color to the Color.kt file
Navigate to app > java > your app’s package name > ui.theme > Color.kt file and add the below code to it.
Step 3: Working with the MainActivity.kt file
Go to the MainActivity.kt file and refer to the following code. Below is the code for the MainActivity.kt file. Comments are added inside the code to understand the code in more detail.
Step 4: Adding permissions in the AndroidManifest.xml file
Navigate to app > AndroidManifest.xml file and add the below permissions to it.
Now run your project to see its output of it.
