Android Jetpack: Introducing WorkManager

Google Rank
The Android WorkManager library makes it easy to schedule deferrable tasks that are expected to run even if the app exits or the device restarts. Need to sync photos with a server, or do a daily cache clean-up? Then WorkManager is the library for you! Because WorkManager is compatible with API 14+ and follows system health best practices, it is the recommended approach for handling most background execution tasks on Android.

WorkManager supports:
-One-off and periodic tasks
-Constraints, such as network availability
-Chaining tasks, parallel or sequentially
-Observable task state for display in UI
-Customized threading strategy
