Jetpack is a suite of libraries to help developers follow best practices, reduce boilerplate code, and write code that works consistently across Android versions and devices so that developers can focus on the code they care about.
Introducing support for multiple backstacks. Switch between bottom navigation items and each item maintains its own state.
Benchmark your app startup and integrated behaviors like scrolling performance. The library can be used remotely to track metrics in continuous integration testing or locally, with profiling results viewable from Android Studio.
Any app that’s using AppCompat 1.4 or later will automatically pull in EmojiCompat2, giving it the ability to dynamically load new emoji and stay current with the latest Unicode spec
