Then, open a browser and visit the Android Studio official website to download the latest version of Android Studio or use the below command to download Android Studio (2021.1.1 Patch 3) from the terminal.
cd /tmp wget https://dl.google.com/dl/android/studio/ide-zips/2021.1.1.23/android-studio-2021.1.1.23-linux.tar.gz
Next, go to the Downloads directory or the directory where you have downloaded the Android Studio. Then extract the downloaded archive using the
tar -zxvf android-studio-*-linux.tar.gz sudo mv android-studio /opt/
Then, link the executable to
/bin directory so that you can quickly start Android Studio using
sudo ln -sf /opt/android-studio/bin/studio.sh /bin/android-studio
