Latest Releases JW Player JW Platform iOS SDK Android SDK


Version 3.0

We are excited to announce JW Player SDK 3.0 for iOS. This release updates the SDK to JW8 and leverages its new UI & UX, optimization, and advertising enhancements to engage your audiences intelligently and monetize your content. In the coming months we will deploy more JW8 features into the JW Player SDKs for iOS & Android, so stay tuned!

Please refer to this important 3.x migration guide for iOS to update your current application from version 2.x to 3.x. This guide includes important information about API changes, new features & callbacks, and will help your team with the transition process.

You may use CocoaPods to update to SDK 3.x, or you can download the SDK 3 packages and new 3.x license keys from the Publish -> Tools section of your JW Player Dashboard. Please note that version 3 of the SDKs are available to our Enterprise edition customers, and require new license keys because 2.x license keys will not work.
