Installation Notes

When you perform the installation you can choose the Standard Setup, which will download the required Android SDK components.


Android Studio requires a compatible Java SE Development Kit (JDK) be installed on your computer. The installation instructions may prompt you to download and install an appropriate JDK (JDK 8 is recommended).
