Configure the Jack compiler: Android Development Essential Training: Create Your First App

The Jack and Jill compiler chain allows you to use Java 8 syntax such as lambda expression and method references in your code. In Android Studio 2.2.1, new applications don't have the Jack compiler turned on automatically - you have to configure the project in the Gradle build file. Once you'd done this you can abbreviate a lot of common code such as method handlers. But you'll lose one of Android Studio's useful features, Instant Run, since as of this release the Jack compiler and Instant Run aren't compatible with each other.
