      val appLinkAction = appLinkIntent.action
      val appLinkData = appLinkIntent.data

3. Dynamic & Pinned Shortcuts ā†—

Handling Dynamic & Pinned Shortcuts (Package)

Although you can publish up to five shortcuts (static and dynamic shortcuts combined) at a time for your app, most launchers can only display four. However, there is no limit to the number of pinned shortcuts to your app that users can create. Even though your app cannot remove pinned shortcuts, it can still disable them.

4. Activity Alias Element ā†—

Understanding Activity Aliases in Android To Preserve Your Launchers

So, in order to keep the shortcut on the home screen, even after the change in the Launcher Activity name, we use the concept of Activtiy-Alias.

5. Material Dark Theme ā†—

Implementing Dark Mode Theme in Android

Some of the most common benefits of a dark theme include conserving battery power for devices with OLED screens, reducing eye strain, and facilitating use in low-light environments. Starting with Android Q, users are now able to switch their device into dark theme via a new system setting, which applies to both the Android system UI and apps running on the device.

6. Coroutine Image Loader (COIL) ā†—

An image loading library for Android backed by Kotlin Coroutines.

  • Fast: Coil performs a number of optimizations including memory and disk caching, downsampling the image in memory, re-using Bitmaps, automatically pausing/cancelling requests, and more.
  • Lightweight: Coil adds ~1500 methods to your APK (for apps that already use OkHttp and Coroutines), which is comparable to Picasso and significantly less than Glide and Fresco.
  • Easy to use: Coil's API leverages Kotlin's language features for simplicity and minimal boilerplate.
  • Modern: Coil is Kotlin-first and uses modern libraries including Coroutines, OkHttp, Okio, and AndroidX Lifecycles.

7. The Bubble API (Android Q Preview) ā†—

Bubbles are a new preview feature in Android Q, which let users easily multi-task from anywhere on their device.

Note: Bubbles are currently enabled for all users in the Q developer previews. In the final release, Bubbles will be available for developer use only.

  • Bubbles take up screen real estate and cover other app content. You should only send a notification as a bubble if it is important enough such as ongoing communications, or if the user has explicitly requested a bubble for some content.
  • Note that the bubble can be disabled by the user. In that case, a bubble notification is shown as a normal notification. You should always make sure your bubble notification works as a normal notification as well.
  • Processes that are launched from a bubble (such as activities and dialogs) appear within the bubble container. This means a bubble can have a task stack. Things can get complicated if there is a lot of functionality or navigation within your bubble. We recommend keeping the functionality as specific and light-weight as possible.

7. Caching with RxJava Operators ā†—

Implement Caching in Android using RxJava Operators

First, we need to understand why caching is useful? Caching is very useful in the following situations:

  • Reduce network calls: We can reduce the network calls by caching the network response.

  • Fetch the data very fast: We can fetch the data very fast if it is cached.

  • Activity:
