In order to give your Android app an icon, we're going to navigate to the following folder in our repo: android/app/src/main/res.
Then, add an icon image renamed ic_launcher.png to each of the four folders with the corresponding dimensions:
- mipmap-hdpi: 72 × 72
- mipmap-mdpi: 48 × 48
- mipmap-xhdpi: 96 × 96
- mipmap-xxhdpi: 144 × 144
Once you've added these images, run the react-native run-android command to build your app, and you should see the icons updated on the home screen of your Android Virtual Device.
For your convenience, app icons for the Android version of Friends have been made available in the repo pertaining to this chapter's code.
