Android Studio 2.1 Preview 3 Available

posted Mar 16, 2016, 2:09 PM by Tor Norbye

We've just pushed Android Studio 2.1 Preview 3 to the canary channel. This build incorporates a number of fixes to support the Android N Preview SDK, as well as incorporating all the Instant Run and other IDE fixes from 2.0 Beta 7, also published today.


You can update your current 2.0 or 2.1 Preview installation to 2.1 Preview 3 via the built-in patch mechanism (Check for Updates). Make sure you switch to the Canary channel, if necessary.

You can also update from 1.5 to 2.1 Preview 3 via the patch mechanism, but you may not want to do that: See our page about how to keep multiple installations simultaneously while Studio is in preview mode.

You can also download a full zip of 2.1 Preview from the Android Studio 2.1 Preview 3 page.


If you run into problems, be sure to check the Known Issues page which we'll update as necessary.
