<title>Android Emulator view</title>
<shortdesc>The Android Emulator view allows you to see and interact with a running AVD. This allows you to test your
applications without needing an Android device, all from within MOTODEV Studio for Android. Note that this view
displays all running AVDs; if there are none, the view is empty. </shortdesc>
<section>This view presents the complete AVD image, including the virtual keyboard if the image includes one. Use
the scroll bars to move around the image, and the zoom controls to resize the image within the view. Select
between multiple running AVDs by clicking the tabs that identify each by name. Use the <xref
href="u_device-manager_android.dita">Device Management view</xref> to start and stop an AVD within this view or
to install applications to the running AVD.</section>
