Oboe Build CI

Introduction to Oboe video

Oboe is a C++ library which makes it easy to build high-performance audio apps on Android. It was created primarily to allow developers to target a simplified API that works across multiple API levels back to API level 16 (Jelly Bean).


  • Compatible with API 16 onwards - runs on 99% of Android devices
  • Chooses the audio API (OpenSL ES on API 16+ or AAudio on API 27+) which will give the best audio performance on the target Android device
  • Automatic latency tuning
  • Modern C++ allowing you to write clean, elegant code
  • Workarounds for some known issues
  • Used by popular apps and frameworks
