Formats, models, and converters: Android Development: Retrofit with Java

Unless you are planning on only working with strings while you communicate with your web service, you will need to tell Retrofit to use a converter appropriate for your data. By default, Retrofit is configured to work with OkHttp's ResponseBody type. There are a few different converters for popular serialization libraries already published for your convenience, like a GSON module for working with JSON data. This converter is added when the Retrofit instance is created in your app.
