We've released Android Studio 2.0 and Emulator 25.1.1 to the dev, beta, and stable release channels.

This release is focused on development productivity by introducing instant run and a much faster emulator. Please see our blog post for more details.

If you want to test out Android N development features, please move to the Canary Channel and use Android Studio 2.1. This is our officially supported solution when building for Android N.

Android Studio Installation

You can update your current 1.5 or 2.0 installation to 2.0 Stable by using the built-in patch mechanism or downloading the full Zip files off our downloads page.


If you run into problems, be sure to check the Known Issues page which we'll update as necessary. If you can’t find something on the Known Issues page or Instant Run documentation please open an issue. (via Help > Submit Feedback in Android Studio and For the Emulator use the tools menu select the “three circles” > Help > File a Bug.)
