Is JDK 1.8 fully supported by Android Studio?

I just downloaded JDK 1.8.0_51 from my previous JDK 1.8.0_33 because i was having issues. There being some workaround to use Jdk 8 with Android, I was just wondering has Google already added a full support to the JDK in Android studio ? or should I just use JDK 1.7? advice will be highly appreciated.

Answer

You should just use JDK 1.7. There are some features in JDK 8 that are not yet supported.
