    Jetpack library is amazing, really helpful and up to date. And it's solving the problem of backwards compatibility across all the different Android versions. However it's making our apps bigger – common components that all apps are/should be using are shipped with each app now.
    Would it be possible that you somehow centralise this? For example Play Store could download it once (per needed version) and then share it with all apps that need it?

    Seeing the change to ease of use for set/get methods related to the findViewById() is a great integration, glad to see it.

    Not showing the icons in gentle is not really something I like, that way I don't know whether I have notifications and I wouldn't pull down the shade if there aren't any icons now would I?
    The minimized notifications are fine for not having icons, but the gentle ones IMO still should, as it was in Pie.
