Currently, the android gradle plugin rasterizes all our drawables for all possible resolutions and stores PNG files for those. These are used on phones with API < 21, but can lead to blurry icons if the
dp value in the
xml file is not matching the actual size on screen. Also it takes up more space in the APK.
This MR enables the androidx library support for vector drawables, so we can use them on lower API levels as well and makes the required code modifications.
NotificationCompat doesn't take care (yet?) of using VectorDrawables for notifications, so the only solution is to include pre-rasterized icons only for notifications.
