Once you have created a release, you can preview your release on an Android device, Android emulator, or iOS device using the shorebird preview command.

shorebird preview

This will download the release artifacts for the selected app release version, install the app on the selected device, and start the application.


shorebird preview can be used on any computer that is configured for Flutter development, not just the computer that was used to create the release. This is useful for verifying releases that were created on a CI/CD server.
