Introduction

02:08

The Service is one of the fundamental building blocks of an Android app. Services are used to perform long-running operations in Android apps. If you want to become a pro Android coder, you're going to need to master Services.

In this course, you'll learn everything you need to know to use Services in your Kotlin Android app.

First, you'll learn about the different types of Service: how they are different, and the tasks they perform in an Android app. You'll see examples of different kinds of Service in popular apps, and you'll get to practice creating useful Services from scratch. Finally, you'll learn about the Broadcast Receiver, which lets Activities and Services communicate.
