What's the status of nesting VMs in a testing environment?

We are in a dire need of having Android Emulator performing integration tests of our libraries within Android Emulator. What is the status of running Android Emulator in a Docker on CircleCI? Is Hardware Acceleration enabled for nested VMs?

Only if VM nesting is enabled in a hypervisor. Otherwise it’s not a big difference.

There is no way to do this today. There is an existing feature request here: https://ideas.circleci.com/ideas/CCI-I-1194 I would encourage you to vote on it, and add your specific use case to the comments.

I will definitely support it.

@PeterBocan We now have a new Android machine image available for preview, which supports nested virtualization and Android emulator tests: Early Preview - New Android Machine Image
