It has been little over month since Google announced to release its second major upgrade to all of its Android integrated development environment and now the wait is over.
It was December 2014 when the first Android Studio 1.0 version released, after in development for almost two years. It is taken the same length of time to remove wraps off on Android 2.0 which is not officially released in beta form.
The noticeable feature of latest IDE on Android’s is what Google calls the “Instant Run.” Instant Run allows all Android developers to instantaneously view any changes that they make to their app’s code on device or on Android Emulator.
Instead of just waiting for whole app to rebuild and restart after code change, Android Studio 2.0 only adjust the changes that are made and allow viewing of the changes under a second. This feature has been a part of build since updated IDE was only available on Canary channel.
The major addition to Android 2.0 beta is its new emulator. Android Emulator allows more rotation controls as and for multi touch support apps that uses gestures like pinch and zoom to navigate around an app.
