In the past, we’ve noted related features like Job Scheduler in Android 5.0 Lollipop, Doze and App Standby in Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Doze improvements in Android 7.0 Nougat, and Background limits in Android 8.0 Oreo.

There’s also the goal of improving app performance and security. The easiest solution is to use the latest API level. It shouldn’t be a year older than the current Android version. This keeps app up-to-date all the time with the newest performance and security improvements. Developers are encouraged to check the foreground and background needs of an app as they could affect power and performance.
