How to slow down internet speed on Android Emulator

Updated: March 15, 2022 By: A Goodman Post a comment

This article shows you how to slow down the internet speed on an Android emulator to fit your testing purposes.

1. Launch your Android emulator then click the three-dot symbol on the toolbar:

2. Select “Cellular” from the left-hand menu then change “Network type” and “Signal strength”. I personally think “UMTS” (3G) and “Poor” are good if you want to see how your app works under a slow internet connection.
