Why Kotlin is so popular for Android development and not general Java Development?

So I already know Java and working on it for 5 year.

Now I am transining to Kotlin and all I hear is “Kotlin for Android”. I know this is easy and kind of language which reduces the code base of app and main Null Pointer.

But why so much for Android and not anything else. I worked on Spring boot and want to convert whole Rest API in Kotlin.

Let me know what is reason if there is any to become very good language for Android development and not for other kind of S/W and web development on Java.
