Howdy folks in Android land!

Will there be official Java9 support in Android next release? Or will their
focus be much more towards Kotlin?

Probably nothing in Java 9 for the next version, but Android's Java
implementation switched to OpenJDK a release or two back so it is always
possible though.  However most of the apis won't be available in versions
of Android before p. Language changes at the compiler level might be
available as long as they don't need any new library support.

Kotlin on Android has the same limitations as Java 9 does so other than
spending a lot of time catching up the samples,docs, and tooling we
probably won't see anything specific to it.
