Late last year Microsoft introduced VS emulator for android along with Visual studio 2014 (now called as Visual Studio 2015), but now it’s available as a separate package downloadable from https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/features/msft-android-emulator-vs.aspx. Hence machine without visual studio can also install this emulator and work for any kind of android application development and testing.
What are the major advantages?
It’s very fast compared to any emulator till date.
It works seamlessly even if your Hyper-V is enabled
Since now it is along with Visual studio, you don’t have to buy any 3rd party emulator which works with Visual studio
Apart from that
The emulator has following cool features
Supports sensor simulation like Zoom, Orientation
Power button simulation
Here is the complete video of installation and above discussion
