Join Albert Lo for an in-depth discussion in this video Set up the emulator, part of Android Development: Modern Android UI Design Elements.
- [Instructor] We will need to test our code at various stages throughout this course. You can use a physical android device for testing or you can use a virtual emulated android device. If you decide to use a virtual device you can set it up as follows. We go to the top menu and we select tools. Android, and select AVD Manager. Once the dialogue is up we select create virtual device on the bottom left here.
And we select a device. I already have a Pixel XL, so lets try Pixel as my device. You can select any one of these with the different screen sizes to experiment with how your app will look in the different screen sizes. I'm just going to go ahead and select Pixel, select next. I am going to select API Level 24, and we need to make sure that google API is included in the target. So that we can test the google account selection inside the emulator.
If you have not yet downloaded an API image you may see the download link here. In which case, just tap on the download link to download an image. And once you have that, then we select next. And under here we go select advanced settings. Scroll down, and let's bump up our RAM. Let's also bump up our heap to 512. And let's increase our internal storage.
And that should be it. And now we just press finish, and it will go ahead and create a virtual device for us. So then once we're in the app if we press run, we should be able to see our new virtual device.
