You don’t have them until you do!

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

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