Android emulators there are many, but few as powerful and versatile as included within Android Studio. After all, it is the official emulator on which developers test applications. It has been improving over time and today receives two very important improvements: the quick start and support for Google Play.

Quick Boot , or Quick Boot , is a system for the emulator to start faster. Now it will be a matter of 6 seconds to reopen it. On the other hand, Google has created images of the system with built-in Google Play, making it easier for developers to test applications that depend on Google Play Services or that need to interact with the store.

Quick start

We start with the quick start. Using an improved snapshot system, the Android emulator is able to restart in a few seconds. To do this, keep all the information about the state in a snapshot that will load faster when you open it again. The result is that it takes less time to open, but it takes longer to close (because you have to save the state).

Quick Boot is already activated in the latest version of the Android emulator of Android Studio, version 27.0.2. To use it, you must simply close the emulator by clicking on the X instead of using the power off button. When you open it, it will read the status and it really is faster than loading it from scratch.

System images with Google Play

On the other hand, you will find in AVD Manager new images of the Android system, now with Google Play included. Until now, the most similar thing was that there were images with the Google APIs, but Google Play was not included. To use Google Play in the emulator you need, of course, to sign in with your Google account.

It is necessary to download the specific system images with Google Play (indicated in your name) to have access. Versions are available from Nougat and up to API 27. This is a novelty that will simplify the life of many developers, since it facilitates the use of the emulator as if it were a real telephone.
