Heading 2: Downloading Android Studio
If you don’t have Android Studio installed on your computer, you can download it by going to the Android developer page. Click on the first link, and you will see the Download option which includes release notes with added features and bug fixes. Once you have selected your desired version, you can start downloading the installable file.
Heading 2: Installing Android Studio on Mac
If you’re using a Mac with an Intel chip, you need to download the Mac with Intel chip version. If you’re using a Mac with an Apple chip, go to the Apple icon and check the chip name. Once you have downloaded the file, open your Downloads folder, and if you see a .DMG file, click on it. Next, drag the Android Studio app into the Applications folder. If you already have another version of Android Studio, you will be prompted to replace it.
Heading 2: Updating Android Studio
If you already have Android Studio installed, you can update it by checking for updates in the settings. You can also update Android Studio by opening any project and clicking on check for updates. Once an update is available, you will see an icon in the right corner. Click on the icon, and update the software.
Heading 2: Fixing Gradle Sync Errors
After updating, you may face Gradle sync errors. To fix these, close the window and reopen it. If the error persists, go to the project view and delete any unnecessary modules in the modules.xml file. You may also encounter errors related to unsupported modules. In this case, open an existing project or create a new one, and the modules.xml file will regenerate itself.
If the error says no cached version of build tools Aapt2 column 7.4.0 is available for offline mode, go to Android Studio Preferences > Build Execution Deployment, and click on compiler. Remove any offline commands in this section, or toggle the offline mode in the Gradle view tool window.
Once you have resolved all the errors, rebuild the project, and verify that the application runs smoothly.
