Firebase ML Model Downloader

Preview Status

FlutterFire ML Model Downloader is a preview plugin; APIs may change in a future release.

What does it do?#

If you use custom TensorFlow Lite models, Firebase ML can help you ensure your users are always using the best-available version of your custom model. When you deploy your model with Firebase, Firebase ML only downloads the model when it's needed and automatically updates your users with the latest version.

Once downloaded, you can use packages such as tflite_flutter to interpret your model.
