The Android Studio 2.0 integrated development environment is around the corner, in its previous version ready for download we already know all the innovations that we will find in the new emulator Android.
The news of the Emulator Android Studio 2.0 focus on two main benefits, which are on the one hand the speed and performance and on the other hand the usability and user interface, improvements that will help developers to test their applications in a wide range sizes of screen and configurations of hardware beyond the physical devices.
- CPU performance: With the new version of Android Studio happens to use by default the CPU acceleration for emulation of the system on x 86. This combined with the Symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the emulator can go even faster than physical devices. In addition, support multi – core also will that the APK files be installed faster and developers to adapt their applications for devices with multi-core processors.
- ADB fast: This faster emulator also allows to the ADB (Android Debug Bridge) send data between Android Studio and much faster device. With 6.0 Android system images Marshmallow sending files through ADB until the emulator will be up to five times faster than with a real device, with what the developer will save those little waiting times.
- Toolbar: The new emulator interface brings a new toolbar that offers some of the most common actions of the emulator for not having to resort to the command line. We find actions such as power, Volume Control, screen rotation, capture screen, and navigation buttons.
- Zoom and scale-up: With the new emulator resize the window now is as easy as dragging a corner. They also allow us to zoom and scroll to see up close and much more detail some region of the emulator screen.
- Drag and drop: Install applications APK and moving files to the virtual memory of the emulator is as simple as drag and drop from a folder to the emulator.
- Extended UI controls: Finally, in its extended controls window you will find many more options that allow developers to initiate a series of actions and States in the emulator, as do a virtual call, send a virtual, control the power of the emulator, simulating the battery charge level or simulate locations by sending a single coordinate or send several strike through KML or GPX points.
