‘ERROR: Running multiple emulators with the same AVD is an experimental feature’ Android Emulator Error Fix

Last Updated on July 26, 2019.

As a react native user, I prefer to run android emulator using the command line. Thus, I can avoid opening Android Studio. Sometimes, I can’t run the emulator as I face the following Android emulator error:

emulator: ERROR: Running multiple emulators with the same AVD is an experimental feature.
Please use -read-only flag to enable this feature.

Follow the steps below to fix this Android emulator error:

  1. Open Android Studio
  2. Click on AVD Manager
  3. Choose the drop down arrow across your emulator and select stop.
  4. Close the Android Studio and now run the emulator using the command line.

That’s how the android emulator error is fixed. If you want to know how to run android emulator using command line check out my blog post.
