In combination with Android x86 emulator images provided by Intel and the official Android SDK Manager, HAXM allows for faster Android emulation on Intel VT enabled systems.

Windows:

Windows 8 (32/64-bit), Windows 7 (32/64-bit), Windows Vista* (32/64-bit), Windows XP (32-bit only)

Mac OS X:

Intel-based Macs with Mac OS X 10.6 and later (32/64-bit)

Known issue:

The Android Emulator may freeze when HAXM and VirtualBox v4.2.14 and newer are run in parallel on the same machine. Our testing shows that previous versions of VirtualBox, v4.2.12 and earlier, don’t exhibit the issue.

Linux

Ubuntu (64-bit)
