Get a first look at the new features in Android N and Android Studio 2.1 in this concise quick start guide. Find out how to install the developer previews and get started creating and compiling apps, testing devices, and programming with Java 8 syntax.
- [Voiceover] My name is David Gassner and this is a first look for software developers at the preview release of Android N, the next version of the Android operating system. After a look at some of Android N's new features, I'll describe how to install the first preview of Android studio two point one, which includes the latest Android N-SDK. I'll then show you how to setup virtual and physical devices to test Android N's new features and how to configure an Android studio project to use the new SDK.
Finally, I'll demonstrate one of Android N's most interesting features for developers, the ability to use Java 8 programming syntax, made possible by Google's move to open JDK, and the new Jack and Jill Compiler Tool Chain. I hope you find this course useful in getting started with the next versions of Android and Android studio.
