Manually install Gradle and use it in Android Studio

Issue

I’m using Android Studio. How can I manually install and use Gradle within Android Studio.

I’ve downloaded Gradle from http://www.gradle.org/downloads version gradle-2.1-all.zip.

When I open the zipped file I can see bin, docs etc, but I don’t know where to copy it. And even after copying how to use it within Android..

Solution

Android Studio will automatically use the Gradle wrapper and pull the correct version of Gradle rather than use a locally installed version. If you wish to use a new version of Gradle, you can change the version used by studio. Beneath your Android Studio’s project tree, open the file gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties. Change this entry:

distributionUrl=http\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-2.1-all.zip
