Hermes Engine is a JavaScript engine optimized for running React Native applications on Android. Developed by Facebook, Hermes aims to improve app startup time, decrease memory usage, and reduce the size of the APK file. It achieves these optimizations by precompiling JavaScript code into bytecode during the build process, resulting in faster execution and reduced runtime overhead.

Compared to the default JavaScript engine used in React Native, Hermes offers significant performance improvements, making it a preferred choice for Android app development. Its focus on efficiency and speed makes it a valuable tool for enhancing the overall user experience.
