Google Rolls Out Android Studio 2.0

Google Rolls Out Android Studio 2.0 – In a recently published blog post, tech giant Google has revealed that its official development tool — Android Studio — is now out of beta; with the company having rolled out the stable version of Android Studio 2.0, featuring new capabilities for faster app development.

Android product manager Jamal Eason said in the blog post that some of the most noteworthy features of Android Studio 2.0 include a new Android Emulator; the Instant Run command; and a new service called Cloud Test Lab.

According to Eason, the new Android Emulator is three times faster than its predecessor; and boasts Android debugger enhancements as well as Google Play Services for testing on API functionality. It also boasts the inclusion of other features for managing calls, battery, network and GPS.

About the Instant Run command in Android Studio 2.0, Eason said that the command helps reduce the time to update an app. It also enables developers to make changes that will show up live in a running app; and can perform a hot/warm/cold swap, for pushing updated code to connected devices or emulators.

Eason also said in the blog post that the new Cloud Test Lab service introduced in Android Studio 2.0 facilitates developers in testing an app over a wide range of devices. The testing of an app with the emulator or on an Android device paves the way for the Cloud Test Lab to run through a series of tests against a portfolio of physical devices which are hosted in Google’s data centers.
