    3. Your package directory will now be broken up into individual directories

    4. Individually select each directory you want to rename, and:

    • Right-click it
    • Select Refactor
    • Click on Rename
    • In the pop-up dialog, click on Rename Package instead of Rename Directory
    • Enter the new name and hit Refactor
    • Click Do Refactor in the bottom
    • Allow a minute to let Android Studio update all changes

    Note: When renaming com in Android Studio, it might give a warning. In such case, select Rename All

    1. Now open your Gradle Build File (build.gradle - Usually app or mobile). Update the applicationId in the defaultConfig to your new Package Name and Sync Gradle, if it hasn’t already been updated automatically:

    You may need to change the package= attribute in your manifest.
    Clean and Rebuild.
