I prefer the dark one Now we need to make sure the “Performance” is checked and also we need to check the “Android Virtual Device” and click “Next” Android Studio may display the window to let you specify the amount of memory for your virtual device You can use recommended size, but also you can increase the size for a better performance And after that just click “Next” and click “Finish” This will install the latest sdk tools and all components needed to start creating Android apps After the download is completed click “Finish” to start creating your first app Click “Start a new Android Studio project” Now choose the “Empty Activity” and click “Next” Now we need to give our first project a name. So, let’s call it “My awesome app” You can also specify the package name and change the location of your project by clicking this folder icon And now let’s select the programming language I advice you to pick Kotlin because it’s newer and even Google advices it in the guidelines Then just click “Finish” and wait until the indexing process is finished You can hide the “Build” window by clicking this button The first thing we need is to open the “resources” folder. Here is the “resources” folder And we need to open the “layouts” folder And now we need this file “activity_main.xml” Double-click it to open. And now we need to switch to the text representation to modify our layout So, click here And… We can rescale it And here we have a TextView It just displays text. And let’s change it’s text to “It’s my first Android app” Now you can run your app. If you have a device – just connect it to your computer and click the “run” button This one. If you don’t have a device – you can create a virtual one Click here and open the “AVD manager” So, if you don’t have any device here – you can create it And “Create Virtual Device” is what you need Just select… You can select any device. I will select the Pixel 2 and lick “Next” And click “Download” near the newest Android version. For me is Android 29 So, just click “Download” And click “Accept” and “Next” And this will download the needed data for your virtual device. Just wait until the process will be finished Now, close the window by clicking “Finish” And click “Next” And “Finish” Now just close it And here you can pick your newly created virtual device, so you can select this Pixel 2 API 29 Just just run your app on this virtual device Please note, guys, that it may take a little to start a virtual device.
