FREMONT, CA: Google announces the release of the official integrated development environment (IDE) for the development of Android applications, called Android Studio 2.0. The Android Studio 2.0 is a simplified way to build high quality apps for the Android platform.

The Android Studio includes a code editor, code analysis tools, emulators and all the necessary tools to build android apps. The android applications can be built for devices including phones and tablets, Android Auto, Android Wear, and Android TV. Android Studio is built in coordination with the Android platform and supports all of the Application Program Interfaces (APIs). The Android Studio includes:

Instant Run

Instant Run is created for developers who love fast build speeds as it allows developers to make changes and see them appear live in the running app. With build/run accelerations ranging from VM hot swapping to warm swapping app resources, Instant Run saves time every day.

Android Emulator 

The new emulator runs 3 times faster than Android’s previous emulator, and with ADB enhancements developers can now push apps and data 10x faster to the emulator than to a physical device. Like a physical device, the official Android emulator also includes Google Play Services built-in, so developers can test out more API functionality. The new emulator also has rich new features to manage calls, battery, network, GPS, and more.

Cloud Test Lab Integration 

Developers can improve the quality of apps by quickly and easily testing them on a wide range of physical Android devices in the Cloud Test Lab right from within Android Studio.

App Indexing Code Generation & Test 

The Android Studio helps promote the visibility of created apps in Google Search for users by adding auto-generated URLS with the App Indexing feature in Android Studio.

GPU Debugger Preview 

Developers who are developing OpenGL ES based games or apps can now see each frame and the GL state with the new GPU debugger. Uncover and diagnose GL rendering issues by capturing and analyzing the GPU stream from an Android device.

IntelliJ 15 Update

Android Studio is built on the Intellij coding platform. IntelliJ IDEA constantly analyzes code, and looks for connections between symbols across all project files and languages. Using this information it provides in depth coding assistance, quick navigation and smart error analysis with handy quick fixes and intelligent refactorings that ensure complete consistency of changes.
