Read more about using desugar in your Android Studio project here: goo.gl/vxnVh6

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.

"We know developers don't like standing still and want access to the latest and greatest tools they use…"That's why we made Java 8 support right after Java 9 was released…

"We've all boarded the Kotlin hype"?? – Gee dude, are you a self proclaimed global spokesperson on behalf of all Android developers? Speak for yourself in the future.

Fuck no. Kotlin compile time is shit compared to Java. Java is still a great language.
