Hello Frank

Seems the issue is related to Flutter but not to Backendless
Take a look at this topic https://github.com/flutter/flutter/issues/32587

Hi,Vlad
app is broken when run " await Backendless.messaging.subscribe(“myChannel”);",sowe get error like" lost connection to device ",then other errors happened.
if i use old version of backendless,then everything is ok,i only get error when i use backendless_sdk: ^1.0.1,seems version conflict

Hi @Frank_He

You need to add the io.socket dependency to support real-time messaging for Android clients. Open your build.gradle file that is located under android/app/ and add the following lines of code:

dependencies {
   implementation ('io.socket:socket.io-client:1.0.0') { 
     // excluding org.json which is provided by Android 
     exclude group: 'org.json', module: 'json' 
   }
}
