Kotlin for Android
Kotlin is now an official Android App development language

This relatively new language is been in development for past few years and is now made available for the developers to try and build Apps upon. This statically typed programming language is much like Java and runs on JVM (Java Virtual Machine). Interestingly, this language is been developed primarily by JetBrains, the company behind IntelliJ and who looks after Android-Studio.

Development tools will be included with Android Studio 3.0 by default, and JetBrains and Google are pledging to support the language going forward.
