You may get an error when using the latest version of Android Studio:
Unsupported method: AndroidProject.getPluginGeneration(). The version of Gradle you connect to does not support that method. To resolve the problem you can change/upgrade the target version of Gradle you connect to. Alternatively, you can ignore this exception and read other information from the model.
Currently there is no fix for this, but there is a workaround by disabling instant run. This can be done by going to
File > Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > Instant Run and unchecking enable.
