Java 8 Language Features on Android (Android Development Patterns S3 Ep 9)

With the help of the Jack toolchain, you’ll be able to cut out boilerplate code with the help of some Java 8 language features. Lambda expressions provide a compact way to express functional interfaces (interfaces with a single method) and method references allow you to use existing methods as lambda expressions - both features available back to API 9 (Gingerbread) devices!

Newly added in API 24 is the Stream API, default method implementations and static methods for interfaces, and repeatable annotations - you’ll have to be on an API 24 devices to take advantage of those features!
