Understanding why you want to "update" yourself is the key to finding something that will resonate deeply enough to support a long term commitment. Then again, there's nothing wrong with trying out interesting tech for a time and later deciding it's not for you.

For me, the important distinction has become: Is my interest in X as a professional or as a hobbyist? Treating X as a hobby takes the pressure off...and lets me make sense of why the overhead of something like Android development creates enough friction that it doesn't feel sustainable. YMMV.

Good luck.
