Android Studio's built-in update mechanism can be set to receive updates through any one of these 3
  • Canary: Bleeding edge, released about weekly. These are early previews released in order to obtain real-world feedback during development. The canary channel will always have the latest build, including updates to beta or stable releases. We recommend running canary builds side-by-side with a beta or stable installation.
  • Beta: Release candidates based on stable canary builds, released and updated to obtain feedback prior to the stable release. The beta channel will be updated with new stable builds until a new canary build goes to beta.
