Where you get this news? I've been playing with flutter since last year, but never heard about this.

It was always possible to use Java code in Flutter apps; why should it not be possible to use Kotlin as well, or why should that be new? A quick search brings up many writeups on this very topic, like https://medium.com/swlh/make-an-android-app-with-kotlin-flutter-and-react-native-32333041b9e8, https://blog.kotlin-academy.com/flutter-and-kotlin-multiplatform-relationship-890616005f57, https://www.calloftechies.com/2019/06/how-to-use-java-or-kotlin-with-flutter.html and https://www.nplix.com/2019/09/flutter-how-to-start-android-activity.html.

I am busy with this subject because want to convince my lead to move to flutter instead to have two separate swift kotlin code bases  or using Kotlin multiplatform. Is true that was always possible to use in native, then also that there is the channel possibility to access to native code, but was a painful process. Still today there are some limitations, https://flutter.dev/docs/development/add-to-app. I heard from not official voices that the google team should come up around december with a more official plugin to make the implementation process easier. I am quite a fan of this platform, and I am optimistic about his future adoption.
