With the R3 2016 release, UI for Android packs two new controls, helping you develop mobile apps with even more value for your users.

The component can display a dropdown with suggestions based on what the end-user has already typed, and once a suggestion is accepted, it appears as a selected token in the textbox area.
This is particularly suitable where the user has to select values from a predefined list—like a list of contacts to send a message to, or list of countries:
