10:54 PM Emulator: Warning: restoring GLES1 context from snapshot. App may need reloading.

I got the above warning message when I tried to run an Android Application in Android Studio, it took a little longer than usual to load the AVD (Android Virtual Device), but it worked fine when the emulator booted. If it does not work or you then you can try to reset your AVD configuration to the way it was before,

When you run your app again, untick AVD option Launch with snapshot, doing so your AVD snapshot will be ignored at the start-up. Hope this helps!
