I’m just curious as i see scala as a very dynamic and advanced language.So, my question is does using Scala on Android brings us any advantages over java ?

IMHO, only if your objective is to demonstrate Scala skills, or if you want to learn Scala on a personal project.

Probably, but I would recommend that you compare Scala to Kotlin, not Java. Partly, that is because Kotlin is the long-term direction for Android app development. Partly, that is because Kotlin has many of Scala’s features, and Kotlin is already an officially-supported language.
