Android Emulator Network Issues

You don’t have them until you do!

Sometimes your Android Emulator can’t connect to the internet? You’re not alone!

Issue

Sometimes when using Android Studio’s Emulator on Mac OS I'd notice that the emulator no network access.

I kept digging trying to find people with the same problem, and finally arrived at a solution 👇

Solution

Add `8.8.8.8` as a DNS server to the current active network interface through "Network>DNS tab" on your Mac preferences. Then apply changes and restart AVD (emulator).

Voila!
