MotionLayout is the latest in the new layout paradigms introduced by ConstraintLayout, providing declarative animations and seekable transitions. Many of the existing techniques and components for animation and transition that we currently use in Android can be done more cleanly and easily in MotionLayout. In this session we're going to run through familiar examples of UI motion in Android applications and see how we can achieve the same UI in MotionLayout. We will discuss pros and cons, examine the latest features, and play with new and interesting ways of making our views move with MotionLayout.
