Genymotion 2.4.0 (March 3rd, 2015)

New feature

Phone widget

The Phone widget allows to test applications relying on telephony features and observe their behavior when receiving a call or a text message. It comes with baseband commands integrated to Genymotion Shell that send raw data directly to the baseband.

Only available with Indie and Business licenses.


  • In some cases, OS hibernation could break Genymotion. Genymotion now runs properly when the OS exits the sleep mode.
  • The Remote control Android application encountered an installation problem due to the new ADB tool version. This issue has been fixed.
  • In some cases, network configuration was not complete during deployment, making virtual devices impossible to use. This issue has been fixed.
