Answer

Use the Paint.setStrokeCap() method. You need Paint.Cap.ROUND. The default one is Paint.Cap.BUTT. There is a similar Path property that is called path join. It determines how to draw the parts of the path where it’s constituent segments join. To set it use Path.setPathJoin(). You might need it in the future. Good luck.
