Test your app on multiple screen sizes with a single resizable emulator. Testing on a single resizable emulator not only allows you to rapidly test changes across different interfaces, but also promotes a smoother development experience by saving the compute resources and memory that would be required to maintain separate virtual devices.
To create a resizable Android Virtual Device (AVD) follow these steps:
- In the create device flow, select the Resizable (Experimental) phone hardware profile.
- Download the system image for API level 33 or higher.
- Follow the prompts to create the AVD.
When you deploy your app to the resizable emulator, use the Display Mode dropdown in the emulator toolbar to quickly toggle between a set of common device types. The emulator screen resizes so you can easily test your app across a range of screen sizes and densities.
