Android Studio - How to change app icon (ic_launcher)

Changing your applications icon (ic_launcher) is a common occurrence when developing your android application. Here's quick steps on how to do this quickly in Android Studio.

  1. In the Android view right click on the "app" folder.
  2. Select New -> Image Asset
  3. In the window shown, choose Asset Type as image and select the icon you want.
  4. Press next and then Finish.

It's as easy as that! Hopefully saves you a little time rather than manually updating all the ic_launcher files manually for the various resolutions.
