    There are some information you need to fill in above

    • Name: Enter name of your project. Here, we have entered HelloWorld
    • Package name: You may have noticed package name is being updated as you type name of the project. However, you can also choose some random, but unique, package name of the project. These is only one restriction. There must not be any android app in playstore with your chosen package name. Otherwise, you won’t be able to publish it in playstore.
    • Save location: Choose the folder location in your laptop where you wish to save your application.
    • Language: Click on language option dropdown. You will see Java , Kotlin options there. Since we are going to code in Kotlin, we have selected Kotlin.
    • Minimum SDK: Select Minimum SDK upto which you want your application to be support. Think about who is your target audience. Who is going to install this application. If you think most of your target audience use android device having OS version greater than or equal to Lollipop, you can select Minimum SDK as 21. This field totally depends upon your target audience.

    Once you have entered everything click on Finish button.
