Introducing Oboe for Building Audio Apps on Android

After years of ignoring musicians, Android may finally be getting on track to provide Apple with some competition in this space. This year we've seen the release of n-Track's Audioroute, allowing for Inter-app Audio and MIDI on Android. Now Google themselves have stepped up to address the latency problem with Oboe. This is a C++ library that they promise will bring low latency audio processing to 99% of Android devices. There is even a demo app using Oboe with Ableton Link.

The official Android Developers YouTube Channel has some new videos to introduce the library. There's an example coding video for Making a Sound with Oboe, and embedded here is an introduction to the library.

Video Description:

Introducing Oboe, a C++ library for building high performance audio apps on Android! Oboe offers the lowest latency possible across 99% of Android devices. If you need to record or playback sounds in your app as close to real-time as possible, Oboe is designed for you. In this video, Don Turner (Developer Advocate for Android Audio) highlights the key features of the Oboe library, how it works under-the hood, and how to start using Oboe in your app!

Well... 10 years later they did it. Too late, no?

Almost no apps with Audioroute nor Oboe, AFAIK. You're not missing anything.
