Google announced new capabilities for its Android Emulator tool to help developers quickly test changes before they are being committed. 

To improve deployability the tool includes the Android Emulator Download Script, which provides current up-to-date emulator images and Android Emulator Docker image generator, which creates the complete environment in which the Android Emulator runs. 

Meanwhile, to improve debuggability, the tool provides ADB to allow commands such as logcat and shell by forwarding a particular port from Docker guest to the host, and includes remote streaming to allow the emulator to run in a container, which is as interactive as running locally. 

The full details of the tool are available here.
