I have a fair bit of knowledge in Java. But I am new to Kotlin. I want to develop Andriod apps. So I want to know by using Kotlin over Java for Android development what are the advantages and what are the disadvantages?
I should focus on Kotlin

I highly suggest Kotlin over Java for Android development. They are both JVM languages, so anything Java can do so can Kotlin. Kotlin is less verbose though and I found I picked it up quite quickly because of how similar the syntax is to Java. Ultimately though, I suggest it because it's the chosen language for Android development and it's what Google suggests.
