Kotlin is a relatively newer language and would be a good choice to look into newer paradigms
But Java has been there for ages now. You have an established community & all major bugs with framework has been worked out. So, the transition to Kotlin from Java would take considerably significant time, unless Google enforces it.

I liked answer of Varun Mehta but to add more,

I see lot of developers moving to Kotlin because it overcomes lot of problems that are still there in Java & the big one is NPE.

Kotlin is a language that follows morden coding architecture instead of decades old Java.

& one more Benifit is you can integrate it with your existing Java App.

No doubt Java is also evolving (Java 8, Rx, RetroLambda) but Kotlin is just whole new animal.


I think lot of developers who follows latest coding patterns and tools will migrate to Kotlin one day or another, Java will still be in it place.
