Hello Khalid.

There are two ways you can install Genymotion:

JetBrains repository method (recommended)

  1. Start Android Studio.
  2. Go to: Windows and Linux: File/Settings. Mac OS X: Android Studio/Preferences.
  3. Select Plugins and click Browse repositories.
  4. Right-click (double-click for Mac OS X) on Genymotion.
  5. Click Download and install and proceed with the next steps.
  6. Restart Android Studio by clicking Restart. From Android Studio 0.3.0 onwards, the toolbar, where Genymotion icon is displayed, is hidden by default. To display it, click View > Toolbar.

Manual method

  1. Download the Genymotion plugin for Android Studio from the Plugins page.
  2. Start Android Studio.
  3. Go to: Windows and Linux: File/Settings. Mac OS X: Android Studio/Preferences.
  4. Select Plugins and click Install plugin from disk.
  5. Select the genymotion-IDEA-plugin.jar file and click OK.
  6. Restart Android Studio by clicking Restart. From Android Studio 0.3.0 onwards, the toolbar, where Genymotion icon is displayed, is hidden by default. To display it, click View > Toolbar.

After the installation, an icon will appear on your toolbar, to the right of the help topics icon. Then you click on it, create a new device (i use the Samsung Galaxy s5) then start it, the emulator will load. After the emulator loads, close the Genymotion device manager and run the app as you would usually do. In the device chooser dialog box, choose the Samsung Galaxy and click Ok.

To install the Genymotion plugin for Android Studio In Android Studio, go to File/Settings (for Windows and Linux) or to Android Studio/Preferences (for Mac OS X) Select Plugins and click Browse Repositories. Right-click on Genymotion and click Download and install.
