AVD (Android Virtual Device) / Emulator

AVD (Android Virtual Device) is an Emulator which helps in running Android applications onto your computer/laptop and you don’t need physical device every time you write/change code. Using an AVD you can run and test nearly every feature of your application right from simple text, GPS, Camera, Database, etc.

Creating AVD :

  • In Android Virtual Device Manager or AVD Manager window, click New button.

  • In Create new Android Virtual Device (AVD) window, set credentials for new AVD you wish to create, press OK.
