Android-Device-Compatibility just yet another compatibility package for Android. This project aims to make the app compatible with various devices all over the world. The project will take care about lots of issues caused by device differences, so you don't need to write a weird compatibility code on your own.

This project offers a port of MediaRouteActionProvider, and its support classes, to work with native API Level 11+ fragments and the action bar. These were ported from the mediarouter Android library project, where these classes require the appcompat action bar and, hence, the fragment backport.

notification-channel-compat adds Notification Channels support to pre-Oreo Android devices. You use the same required coding as for the Android 8.0 built-in channel classes, with minimal change, to add channel support for your app, to any Android 4.0+ device. In Android 8.0+ it uses the built-in channel classes, and in pre-Android 8.0, it mimics them. This frees developer of dealing with notification preferences for older devices, and easily allowed multiple preferences for multiple channels.
