This video shows you how to run your Android app on a custom emulator by Genymotion. In the first step, download and install Virtual Box from Oracle which is free and necessary for running Genymotion. In the next step, create an account on Genymotion which is free, login with the credentials and download Genymotion. Once done, start the Genymotion app on Windows or Mac, add a new virtual device which is basically the Android device running inside your computer on which you would like to test your apps. Once you add a few devices, start Android Studio , navigate to its settings and download the Genymotion Plugin which integrates running Genymotion directly from android studio instead of launching it as a standalone application. Restart Android Studio and now you can use the virtual devices added via Genymotion to run your apps.
