As a result, Android has released its own automotive operating system. In 2018, Google released the first version of Jetpack Compose. A new UI framework that aims to revolutionize the way Android UI is declared. Jetpack Compose promises a lot of new features and a better development experience. However, migrating a large application or set of applications from one framework to another can be a major undertaking and should be done in a planned, structured, and thoughtful way. This paper discusses the pros and cons of migrating to Jetpack Compose in the context of a large automotive application. As a result, a migration strategy guide will be provided.
