One the most requested features we receive is to make app builds and deployment faster in Android Studio. Today at the Android Developer Summit, we’re announcing a preview of Android Studio 2.0 featuring Instant Run that will dramatically improve your development workflow. With Android Studio 2.0, we are also including a preview of a new GPU Profiler.
Instant Run allows you to change the code of your program as it’s running on your device or emulator, and if it indeed works as advertised, this should be a major boon for developers. TechCrunch claims Google’s also improved the emulator in this release, and if there’s one thing I know about programming for Android, it’s that the emulator was absolutely terrible, so good to know they’re working on it.
