Tune Android Animation Speed With a Few Commands
There are several handy tricks in the Android developer capabilities , including the ability to speed up Android animations. However, you can only use 0.5 normal speed, or nothing (unless you want to go slower). If you want to tune them to whatever speed you like, you can do so with a few simple adb commands.
Changing the animation speed of Android can make your phone run faster without significantly affecting its performance. If you have ADB installed , you can change your device’s speed to any fractional speed – measured as any non-zero value between 0 and 1 – with the following commands:
settings put global window_animation_scale 0.75
settings put global transition_animation_scale 0.75
settings put global animator_duration_scale 0.75
The first command will open a direct shell terminal for your device so you can execute the last three. Each of these commands controls a different type of animation. You can customize one or all of them individually.
Keep in mind that animation speed is usually chosen for a reason. While normal animation may only take you a second or so, application developers often use this time to load important information when the application starts up. If the apps become unstable after doing this, try reducing the animation speed again. Check out the complete guide to Android Police below to see how it works.
