Download Android Studio 3.2 – Brings Energy Profiler, App Bundles and Slices Support

Here is how to download new Android Studio 3.2 for Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Google’s latest IDE update ships with loads of new features and functionality. To start off, there is now full support for Android app bundles. Through these bundles, developers can manage smaller and optimized apps for their users and save space. Further, snapshots have been introduced for Android emulator. Just like any virtual environment, you can save a state of your app within the emulator and resume back to it afterwards rather than restarting from scratch. The changes don’t end just there, you can read about them in more detail ahead.

Google was testing Android Studio 3.2 as a Beta for quite some time and early adopters got to test out all new features before hand. Finally, now, the IDE is stable enough to replace old 3.1 release and can be used as a primary setup for app development for all developers. There are two main routes of updating, either you can open your current installation and search for an update or use the full links ahead to install. If you don’t have a previous iteration installed, read ahead to download complete Android Studio 3.2 for your system.

Android Studio 3.2 – Features:

Here we have attached the highlight features that new Android Studio 3.2 brings. You can immediately utilize all of them once you complete the installation procedure.

  • Emulator Snapshots 
    • The latest release of the Android Emulator allows you to create a snapshot of the current state of your emulator and boot up and switch into any snapshot in under 2 seconds. Built upon the Android Emulator Quickboot feature, Android Snapshots are even faster to save and load with this stable release due to under-the-hood speed enhancements. When testing and developing your app, Android snapshots allow you to pre-configure an Android Virtual Device (AVD) snapshot with the presets, apps, data and settings that you want in-place, and repeatedly go back to the same snapshot.

  • Slices support 
    • Slices is a new way to tap into the built-in Android AI capabilities by surfacing app content in Google Search suggestions and the Google Assistant. Android Studio 3.2 has a built-in template to help you extend your app with the new Slice Provider APIs as well as new lint checks to ensure that you’re following best practices when constructing the slices. To use, right-click on a project folder, and navigate to New→ Other→ Slice Provider.

  • Android App Bundle 
    • The Android App Bundle is the new app publishing format designed to help you deliver smaller APKs to your users and reduce download size of your app. Google Play’s new app serving model, called Dynamic Delivery, processes your app bundle to generate and serve optimized APKs for each user’s device configuration, so they download only the code and resources they need to run your app. With Android Studio 3.2 or via the command line, you can easily build your code as an app bundle and get the benefit of smaller APKs based on language, screen density, and ABIs with no changes to your app code.
