Android Studio has a pretty good built-in mechanism for plugin updates. However, sometimes things just don’t work, so let us give you a complete walk-through on it.
We assume you already have the Samebug plugin installed. If you need help with the first installation, click here.
Normally, when Android Studio notices that a plugin update is available, you’ll see a notification. Just click on the link, and Android Studio will take care of the rest. Don’t forget that you have to restart the IDE to make the update take effect.
If you've disabled auto-update, you have to update Samebug manually. Open the Settings window by pressing
S, select Plugins and type ‘samebug’ in the search box. If there is a new version, just click on the blue ‘Update’ button. Don’t forget that you have to restart the IDE for the update to take effect.
It can happen that Android Studio is unable to detect new plugin versions. In this case, you have to download the new plugin version from the JetBrains plugin repository, remove your previous plugin version and install the new one.
S, select Plugins and type ‘samebug’ in the search box. Click ‘Uninstall’. Shed your tears. Restart the IDE.
