The next step is to configure some settings and create your new project, as described below and shown in the below figure.

  • 3. Specify the Save location where you want to locally store your project.
  • 4. Select appropriate Language, here I choose “Java” if you want to make it with Kotlin then you can select Language as a “Kotlin“.
  • 5. Select the Minimum API level you want your app to support. When you select a lower API level, your app can rely on fewer modern Android APIs. However, a larger percentage of Android devices are able to run your app. The opposite is true when selecting a higher API level.
