  3. Thanks for pointing that out! Currently the new features of Systrace are only out in the SDK preview channel. Look for Android SDK Platform-tools version 23 rc4 or higher in the SDK manager, or in the Android SDK settings page in studio, SDK tools tab.

    1. Are those related to input handling, measure, layout, predraw time, and render thread data sync (dark/light green and blue bars)? Can we expect some use case showing detecting issues with new tools? thanks
