Java language is used in java. Java is also used in android studio together with xml for the interface. Eclipse uses java and same to Android studio but android studio is much easier to use and so many features. you can get android tutorials from udemy or android tutor apps in play stire. I hope this will help. Upvote if it did.

The official language for Android development is Java. Large parts of Android are written in Java and its APIs are designed to be called primarily from Java. That said, it is possible to develop C and C++ apps using the Android Native Development Kit (NDK), however it isn't something that Google promotes

Hmm.Fisst the best languages are java and JavaScript (keep in mind that JavaScript requires html)For the second question, sorry I have never used it i dont know.3)If I were you I would start with android studio cause it seems easier and last a good way to learn a language is to learn the courses at Sololearn and then continue to another sites who have more advanced lessons.

Hello Android uses Java as programming language. Not all libraries of the Java language standards are implemented. Andorid Studio comes from IntelliJ IDEA and uses Java as programming language. Better Eclipse or Andoroid Sudio? I think it depends on which ide you work normally, I prefer Eclipse + Genymotion but a lot of people prefer Android Studio Try https://developer.android.com/index.html and youtube There are software that convert apk in java source files, if you want to try a little bit of reverse engineering.

1. there's no best one. but if you want to create android apps natively, you need to use java. but if you want to create web based mobile apps or hybrid one, there's more options like ionicframework who use javascript 2. Android Studio is an IDE that based on Intellij Idea, a java language IDE. but I use it too for web. 3. the support for Android development using eclipse is already stopped. so if you want to create android apps, it's better to use android studio/intellij idea. 4. hmmm... try youtube. learn to create a simple apps first
