VSCode hot reload for Flutter does not work

The hot reload doesn’t work if you launch your app using f5 or select start debugging from the dropdown of debug .

But if you launch your app using Ctrl+f5 or select start without debugging from the dropdown of debug .

To solve the issue first close the running debugging session using Shift+f5.

Then click debug from the menu bar. Click Start without debugging.

Start Without Debugging

Now The Hot reload works perfectly fine.

You can do the hot reload also using terminal.
Just type: flutter run in the terminal and the app will be launched.

just press r in the terminal and hot reload will be initialized.
