Can you give me more details about the Android Emulator and its usage?

I want to know more about the Android Emulator which comes along with the Android SDK.

Can you tell what it does? Can you also give me more details about the Android Emulator and its usage?

An Emulator is nothing but it helps to run your application in a virtual layer on separate host rather to have a new Android phone to test your apps. It runs along with the same base code as an actual device which shows that whatever runs in the real Android device is same running in the Emulator.

The Emulator which comes along with the Android SDK is nothing but QEMU type of processor which comes under GNU GPL version 2. All the emulator emulates all the option still there are exceptions in the Emulator as like visualizing the action of some sensors need the usage of the physical device.

Now accessing the Emulator is just like in the device where you have the mouse to give the touch inputs and type on keyboard keys to trigger the simulated device keys. One more important issue with the Emulator is that it doesn’t support placing or receiving actual phone calls but however the placed and received phone calls can still be simulated through the emulator console.

Some more things to note is that there is no support for USB connection, camera input, headphone jack insert, determination of SD card and Bluetooth which forces the end user to use it only in the physical device but not in the Emulator.
