Google at Google I/O 2018 announced a bunch of new features for the Android Studio. Google’s Android Studio is the best and Google recommended environment for Android App development. Google keeps updating it with new features and now many of the features announced at Google I/O 2018 are now available in the Android Studio 3.2 Beta.
You can download the latest beta version from here. The best thing about the Android Studio beta program is that you can have both the beta and stable versions of the software on your laptop. One of the biggest announcement for the Android studio was the support for Android app bundle.
Android App Bundle is a new publishing format by Google which results in smaller and optimized APK that only contains files and resources needed for a specific device. You don’t have to change any code for this to work just go to Build – Build Bundle/APK – Generate Single Bundle/APK.
Another great feature is the Emulator Snapshots. With Emulator Snapshots in Android Studio beta 3.2 you can quickly save your current state of emulated Android device. Google says it can start a snapshot in under 2 seconds. There is also a new Energy profile which lets you understand the energy impact of your app on an Android device.
This will help developers test battery drain any device can have due to their app and can optimize the app accordingly. “You can now visualize the estimated energy usage of system components, plus inspect background events that may contribute to battery drain.” Google announced.
