Android Emulator is failing on macOS: Could not open GL library libGLESv2.dylib

I am getting the following when launching the android emulator on macOS:

#!/bin/bash --login -eo pipefail
/usr/local/share/android-sdk/tools/emulator @Pixel_2_API_26 -skin 1080x2066 -memory 2048 -noaudio

^D^Demulator: WARNING: userdata partition is resized from 550 M to 800 M

We now have a Linux Android machine image available for preview, that supports running the Android emulator. It might be worth a try to see if the problem is resolved by switching to that image. For more details, refer to Early Preview - New Android Machine Image
