A new Higher Order Component (HOC) was recently released in [React v16.6.0]( called `React.memo`. This behavior of the HOC is similar to what you’d get when using `React.PureComponent` or `shouldComponentUpdate` in a React Class Component. However, now with the introduction of `React.memo`, you can leverage this behavior for React Function Components. The end result is that React will skip rendering the component if the props have not changed and will reuse the last rendered result.
