Release builds of Vulkan Validation Layers for Android

Looking for release builds of the Vulkan Validation Layers for Android?

Developers can find Android binary versions of the Validation Layers in the Vulkan Validation Layers repository.

LunarG releases the Vulkan SDK approximately every 6-8 weeks. The focus of the SDK is for desktop development environments. However, LunarG has received feedback through their ecosystem surveys that indicate Android developers may be using components in the SDK and as such, they have also requested that the Android versions of the Validation Layers be included in the SDK. Instead of including them in the SDK, LunarG has begun the process of creating a build of the Validation Layers for Android coincident and compatible with the Vulkan SDK.
