Java 17 on Android – why you should care

Android 14 brings partial support for Java 17. Given that most modern Android apps are written in Kotlin, you may be tempted to think “So what?!”. However, support for the current Java LTS release is more than a welcome goodie: it can make your apps faster and more stable, and it will improve your coding workflow. In this talk, we’ll look at the latest additions to the Java language and how they affect us as Kotlin devs. You’ll also learn about additions and changes to the Java standard library and how they help you with your Android apps. Still not convinced? I’ll show you what the Kotlin compiler has to say about Java versions after 11.
