About this event

Using WorkManager to schedule background tasks

In this meeting, Mike will be talking about a new tool that has been added to Jetpack. It is named Work Manager and is a production-ready library, designed to make it easy to schedule deferrable, asynchronous tasks that will run even if the app exits or the device restarts.

It is backward compatible (to API 14), can be used for single or periodic tasks, can be constrained to run based on conditions (like battery or network), and even has the ability to chain tasks together.
