How to Download and Install Android SDK R10 for Windows

If you are an Android app developer, you might want to download and install the Android SDK R10 for Windows. The Android SDK R10 is a software development kit that includes the tools and libraries you need to create apps for Android 10 (API level 29), the latest version of the Android platform.

In this article, we will show you how to download and install the Android SDK R10 for Windows using Android Studio, the official integrated development environment (IDE) for Android app development. You will also learn how to update your build configuration to target Android 10 and use the new features and APIs introduced in this version of the platform.

Download and Install Android Studio

The first step is to download and install Android Studio, if you don't have it already. Android Studio is a powerful IDE that provides code completion, debugging, testing, and emulation tools for Android app development. You can download it from the official website.[^2^]

Android Studio requires a computer with Microsoft Windows 7/8/10 (32- or 64-bit). The system requirements are listed here.[^2^]

After downloading the installer file, run it and follow the instructions to complete the installation. You can choose the default settings or customize them according to your preferences.

Download the Android SDK R10

After installing and opening Android Studio, you need to download the Android SDK R10 as follows:

  • Click Tools > SDK Manager.

  • In the SDK Platforms tab, select Android 10 (29).

  • In the SDK Tools tab, select Android SDK Build-Tools 29 (or higher).

  • Click OK to begin the download and installation.

The SDK Manager will download and install the selected packages in your computer. You can check the progress and status in the bottom-right corner of the window.

Update Your Build Configuration

To fully test your app's compatibility with Android 10 and begin using the APIs introduced in this version of the platform, you need to update your build configuration in your module-level build.gradle file as shown here:



compileSdkVersion 29


targetSdkVersion 29



This will tell Android Studio to compile your app with the Android 10 SDK and target Android 10 devices. You can also use lower values for targetSdkVersion, but you might not be able to use some of the new features and APIs in Android 10.

Test Your App on Android 10

To test your app on Android 10 devices or emulators, you need to run your app from Android Studio. You can either connect a physical device that runs Android 10 or create a virtual device using the Android Emulator.

To create a virtual device, follow these steps:

  • Click Tools > AVD Manager.

  • Click Create Virtual Device.

  • Select a device model from the list or create a custom one.

  • Select an image that has API Level 29. If you don't have one, click Download next to it.

  • Click Next.

  • Edit the device settings if needed and click Finish.

To run your app on a device or emulator, follow these steps:

  • Select a device or emulator from the drop-down menu next to the Run button.

Click the Run button or press Shift + F e0e6b7cb5c
