How outdated is the video and steps?

Just wondering, if the video and steps they provide for android studio in the teacher notes is outdated (everyone seems to be having problems) i Think id rather try to figure out how people do it currently. So is it still relevant ?

It can be frustrating trying to get it to work. What worked best for me was switching to a TabLayout interface. I followed this tutorial and got it working fairly quickly:

Note that I'm only as far as the video "Modifying Tabs from the Template" (which is where everything starts going downhill) so I can't comment on whether future steps continue to be easy to implement....
