Where can I find latest gradle version in android studio?

Use + sign instead of version no. It will automatically picks the latest one available

dependencies {
    classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:+'
    classpath "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:$kotlin_version"

See here for release/version information of gradle android plugin: https://bintray.com/android/android-tools/com.android.tools.build.gradle/view

But if you want to install a specific version.Check the url below.


Here you can found the one you required. FYI beta versions are not available. enter image description here

Inside your Android Studio's project tree, open the file gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties. Change this entry to the one you need:


As per official documents : You should not use dynamic dependencies in version numbers, such as 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.+'. Using this feature can cause unexpected version updates and difficulty resolving version differences.

If the specified plugin version has not been downloaded, Gradle downloads it the next time you build your project or click Tools > Android > Sync Project with Gradle Files from the Android Studio menu bar.

Update Gradle

When you update Android Studio, you may receive a prompt to also update Gradle to the latest available version. You can choose to accept the update or manually specify a version based on your project's build requirements.

The following table lists which version of Gradle is required for each version of the Android plugin for Gradle. For the best performance, you should use the latest possible version of both Gradle and the Android plugin.

Plugin version      Required Gradle version
1.0.0 - 1.1.3       2.2.1 - 2.3
1.2.0 - 1.3.1       2.2.1 - 2.9
1.5.0               2.2.1 - 2.13
2.0.0 - 2.1.2       2.10 - 2.13
2.1.3 - 2.2.3       2.14.1+
