In order to improve the experience of Android developers, Google updates Android Studio very frequently. Usually, these are no more than minor enhancements and bug fixes. However, in early April 2016, Android Studio's version number jumped from 1.5 to 2.0. This was a major update, and with it came a lot of brand-new features and under-the-hood optimizations.
If you're still feeling a little lost trying to use all its new features, try our new Coffee Break Course, What's New in Android Studio 2?
In this quick, ten-minute course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Ashraff Hathibelagal will show you how to configure and use all the major features new to Android Studio builds 2.0 and 2.1.
