User Interface Freezes

In Android Studio 3.5, you can improve input latency and edit data binding expressions in XML faster.

Build Speed

Another long-term issue with Android application development is the time it takes to build an application. The new version of Android Studio brings two significant improvements to application compilation. The first is the addition of incremental build support to the annotation processor, including Glide, AndroidX data binding, Dagger, Realm, and Kotlin (KAPT).

The second improvement involvesWindowsDisk I/O on. Windows Defender (now called Windows Security) has the ability to scan files in real time (when creating or modifying files) to protect users from malware. Android Studio 3.5 will display a prompt stating what steps you can take to exclude the project directory from this real-time protection and complete the best settings to speed up the build.


Apply Changes

Another notable change in Android Studio 3.5 is the introduction of Apply Changes, which replaces the old Instant Run. Instant Run is to make small changes to the application and test them more easily, but it can cause problems. In order to solve this problem, Google has completely removed the Instant Run, and basically built the Apply Changes, no longer modify the APK during the build process, but use the runtime tool to dynamically redefine the class, it should run more than immediately Reliable and faster.

APP deployment process

This version has a new drop-down menu that lets you quickly choose which device to deploy your application to. This menu also includes a new option to allow applications to run on multiple devices at once.


Auto-recommend Memory Settings

The IDE will recognize when the application project needs more memory and notify you to increase the memory heap size, or you can adjust the settings yourself under Appearance & Behavior → Memory Settings
