Android Studio Avd emulator shows a black flickering

I had a same issue in my new laptop. I have fixed it by changing one parameter in the emulator’s config file.

  • Go to C:\Users\USER_NAME\.android\avd\Pixel_5_API_31.avd}}
  • Edit the config.ini file.
  • Find the hw.gpu.mode = auto and change it to the hw.gpu.mode = guest and save the changes.
  • Restart the emulator.
