Using the Gradle Version Catalog in Android projects

The Gradle build system Version Catalog is a powerful tool that can help you manage dependencies and plugins in your Android projects. Instead of hard-coding dependency names and versions in individual build files and updating each entry whenever you need to upgrade a dependency, you can create a centralized version catalog of dependencies that various modules and even projects can reference in a type-safe way with Android Studio assistance. This makes managing dependencies and plugins easier when you have multiple modules or projects.

In this video, I will show you how to migrate your Android app to version catalogs. I will cover the basic steps of creating a version catalog file, migrating dependencies, and plugins. I will also provide some tips and tricks to help you get started with the Gradle version catalog publication.
