Android Studio

Android Studio is the official[7] integrated

designed specifically for Android
development.[8] It is available for download
on Windows, macOS and Linux based

Android Studio was announced on May 16,

2013 at the Google I/O conference. It was
in early access preview stage starting
from version 0.1 in May 2013, then entered
beta stage starting from version 0.8 which
was released in June 2014.[11] The first
stable build was released in December
2014, starting from version 1.0.[12]

Since 7 May 2019, Kotlin is Google’s

preferred language for Android app
development.[13] Still, other languages are
supported, including by Android Studio.

The following features are provided in the
current stable version:[14][15]

Gradle-based build support

Android-specific refactoring and quick
Lint tools to catch performance,
usability, version compatibility and other
ProGuard integration and app-signing
Template-based wizards to create
common Android designs and
A rich layout editor that allows users to
drag-and-drop UI components, option to
preview layouts on multiple screen
Support for building Android Wear apps
Built-in support for Google Cloud
Platform, enabling integration with
Firebase Cloud Messaging (Earlier
'Google Cloud Messaging') and Google
App Engine[17]
Android Virtual Device (Emulator) to run
and debug apps in the Android studio.

Android Studio supports all the same

programming languages of IntelliJ (and
CLion) e.g. Java, C++, and more with
extensions, such as Go;[18] and Android
Studio 3.0 or later supports Kotlin[19] and
"all Java 7 language features and a subset
of Java 8 language features that vary by
platform version."[20] External projects
backport some Java 9 features.[21] While
IntelliJ that Android Studio is built on
supports all released Java versions, and
Java 12, it's not clear to what level Android
Studio supports Java versions up to Java
12 (the documentation mentions partial
Java 8 support). At least some new
language features up to Java 12 are
usable in Android.[22]
