Deependra Pandey, Rohan Raj Gupta


Android applications are now ubiquitous and an essential element of the present and future landscape. With over 2.8 billion active users in over 190 countries and a market share of 75%, the Android Operating System is one of the most popular operating systems in the world. It is a Google-sponsored open-source operating system created by the Open Handset Alliance. It was also founded in 2003 by Andy Rubin, Rich Miner, Nick Sears, and Chris White. Samsung, Huawei, and Xiaomi are the top three Android smartphone manufacturers. It's easy to use, has a wide user base, allows for more customization, and many companies produce Android-compatible smartphones. As a result, the market for Android mobile application development is experiencing a boom in demand, necessitating the hiring of skilled developers with the requisite skill set.

Google prefers to write Android apps in Kotlin, which was created and is maintained by JetBrains and has been declared as an official language for Android development. Previously, Java was regarded to be the official language for Android development, however Kotlin was declared the official language during Google I/O 2017.
