We've released Android Studio 2.1 Preview in the canary channel to support the Android N Developer Preview.
Android Studio 2.1 (canary channel) is a minor update to Android Studio 2.0 (beta channel) that includes changes to improve support for Java 8 and the new Jack compiler. To use Java 8 language features when developing with the Android N Preview, you currently need to use the Jack compiler provided with Android Studio 2.1. An updated New Project wizard also generates the correct configuration for projects targeting the Android N Preview.
Android Studio 2.1 also improves support for the latest Android Emulator 2.0 Beta, which provides the best performance with the Android N Preview system image.

We will be updating Android Studio 2.1 quite frequently in the canary channel as we fix issues and enable new functionality. Please make sure to update to the latest version before filing bugs.
