Wrote about this recently and it is still in Beta at this moment but think it will be out soon.
So this is exciting as this means playing live with Android will be less annoying for real musicians and for anyone not depending on sequencers for their music making.
Also as there already have been a transition of iOS apps getting in on the Android market this will probably be meaning that there will be a lots more coming.
Hopefully with this new audio engine there also will be someone making app interconnectivity?
There is two developers that already have adopted their apps for low latency.
Ahh can you guess the first one?
Of course the developer of G-Stomper that always works on keeping his apps to the highest standard and then there is the developer of Mikrowave/Kosm that is keeping his apps relevant.

Interesting new app for people that wants to jam over many devices but also include hardware into the mix! It is made by the developer of G-Stomper Studio (and family) that have Ableton Link built in already (Ableton live is not required for Ableton Link enabled apps).
Lately there has been more and more apps available with Ableton Link the latest one being brought to my attention is Beatonal.
The app is still in Beta but the developer is searching for more Beta testers until it gets fully released.
Last but not least:
Early BETA testers can grab it for free until 22nd of August 2017.

I did buy this on discount and there is some positive things that makes it worth having.
There is also a lot of things that are not so good (specially for the full price).
Mainly the positive things are that there is many good sounds that gets modulated by using the X-Y pad. As it can be set to scale and tempo it is nice to record into a DAW for example and come up with things that can be hard to come up with in other ways.
Also there is the possibility to import your own loops.
It is fun to play with but can probably become boring fast after some days/hours as the sounds are a little bit limited and the sequencer is just for five looped instruments/parts that can not be arranged more than turning them on and off. So to use it for longer arrangements it needs help like said before.
The sounds are very EDM oriented and there is not easy to find oddness and weirdness to spill out of it. It would be excellent to have the interface of Kaosillator for some more glitchy/weird sounds and rhythms...
Anyway I do not regret getting it as it has already led me to add some nice details in some things recorded.

NOISE is a powerful modular music app that lets you make music in minutes, whether you’re a beginner or a pro musician. Using simple, easy-to-learn gestures, you can create beats, melodies and songs with a huge library of sounds. NOISE was developed by music technology pioneer ROLI, and the app’s expressive power can be expanded with ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music studio.
A NEW APPROACH TO MAKING MUSIC
Your touch screen becomes a real musical instrument with NOISE, which lets you shape sounds by drumming the screen, gliding your fingers along it, pressing into it, and lifting off. You make music through intuitive gestures on a grid of colorful pads. Each pad is a particular instrument or a note in a scale.
AN INSTRUMENT AND A STUDIO IN ONE
NOISE makes you both a performer and a producer. Start by choosing from custom-made sounds that range from bongo drums to string sections to zithers. Shape those sounds into beats and melodies, and record them as loops. Then mix and match these loops and build amazingly multi-layered songs.
DESIGNED FOR LEARNERS
If you love listening to music but don’t think you can play an instrument, NOISE may change your mind. It’s a fun, interactive learning tool. In Learn Mode, just trace illuminated Light Trails to learn how to shape beats and melodies. Choose from one of 15 scales, and the notes of that scale light up on the grid. Turn on Hide Mode to always stay in tune — it hides notes that not in the key. Use Snap Mode to stay in time — it snaps your performance to the tempo.
STAR MUSICIANS ARE SHARING THEIR SOUNDS (Coming soon)
Grimes, RZA, Steve Aoki, and other world-renowned artists are releasing signature soundpacks for everyone making music with NOISE. Build your next song with sounds straight from the studio of a professional artist. Available through in-app purchase and on NOISE.fm.
ROLI BLOCKS TAKES YOUR MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL
The power of NOISE expands when it’s connected to ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music studio. Pairing wirelessly, NOISE is the software engine for BLOCKS. Visit www.roli.com to learn more about the Lightpad Block, the central Block in the system. On the Lightpad Block’s pressure-sensitive, illuminated surface you shape sound in all the ways you do in NOISE, with a surface that lets you be even more expressive.
