How to configure Kotlin version in Android Studio?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have configured the Kotlin version in project’s build.gradle. But in Other Settings->Kotlin Compiler , it shows an older version.
How to fix that?

project's build.gradle

Android Studio's Settings

How to solve:

It is not showing you outdated version. Let’s say your plugin version is ‘1.1.3’, so your compiler version is ‘1.1’ not ‘1.1.3’. Now, if you will update your kotlin by going in

Tools > Kotlin > Configure Kotlin Updates

to early access version ‘1.2’ as shown in screenshot below, you will be able to see ‘1.2’ in you ‘Kotlin compiler’ settings.

enter image description here


In your Android studio,
Go to Tools -> Kotlin -> Configure Kotlin Updates.
