Any good reason why to pick Java other than finding tutorials?

But I'm wondering if I will fcae any issues? for example I may follow a video tutorial and dfind something nkt working because it is outdated?

Unfortunately, since Android doesn't adhere as strongly to Java's backwards-compatibity mindset as "real" Java does and mutates radically quite frequently, it's pretty likely that even Kotlin examples can be out of date. Especially anything that comes to asynchronous processing.



In this case which one should I focus on?

I know that Google is now prfer Kotlin. I'm a beginner and would like to learn Abdroid development. I started with Java fundamentals and now learning about collections. Should I stop and move to Kotlin? or ia it OK if I continue with Java if my goal is to build Android apps? I'm just worrying that I may face issues in Android tutorials with Java? they could be outdated for example?

Please advise.
