How to start the Android emulator

By: Gren in Android Tutorials on 2023-04-03  

To start an Android emulator in Android Studio, follow these steps:

  1. Open Android Studio and select "AVD Manager" from the "Welcome to Android Studio" window, or go to "Tools" > "AVD Manager" from the main menu.

  2. In the AVD Manager, click the "Create Virtual Device" button.

  3. Select a device definition and click "Next".

  4. Choose a system image and click "Next".

  5. Configure the AVD options, such as the device name, storage settings, and other settings as desired, and then click "Finish".

  6. Once you have created your AVD, select it from the list of virtual devices in the AVD Manager and click the "Play" button to start the emulator.

Alternatively, you can start an emulator from the command line by navigating to the directory where the emulator executable is located (typically, the "emulator" folder in the Android SDK directory) and running the command "emulator -avd <AVD name>", where "<AVD name>" is the name of the virtual device you want to start.
