Android Gradle for Android Enable Proguard using gradle


For enabling Proguard configurations for your application you need to enable it in your module-level gradle file. You need to set the value of minifyEnabled to true.

buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled true
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), ''

The above code will apply your Proguard configurations contained in the default Android SDK combined with the "" file on your module to your released apk.
