With Android Studio 3.0 and the new Android Plugin for Gradle, Android app developers can now use Java 8 language features such as lambdas, method references, and more, in their projects. Thanks to bytecode transformations (a step we call “desugar”), these also work with code using Java 8 language features in third party libraries. Moreover, the translated DEX code runs on all API levels.
