Is it possible to render with transparent background using Eevee renderer?

When using 2.79 you can find it on the right side in the properties section, go to render settings, scroll down to the film area and open it. In it, there is a dropdown box called alpha, and currently selected will be sky. Select transparent, and there you go!

enter image description here

In 2.80 the option has been changed to a checkbox and renamed to Transparent as shown in the image below.

    $\begingroup$ Be sure you are also setting your export image settings to 'RGBA' instead of the default RGB, else your background will save as black. $\endgroup$
