When you use Android Gradle Plugin 4.0.0 and newer, you can now use several hundred APIs from newer OpenJDK versions and your app will work on any Android device? Some of these newer Java APIs in Android 11 are supported through backporting while other APIs are also available via desugaring on older devices where the Android platform does not have the APIs on the runtime.
