On top of the capabilities you expect from IntelliJ, Android Studio offers:

Gradle-based build support.

Android-specific refactoring and quick fixes.

Lint tools to catch performance, usability, version compatibility and other problems.

ProGuard and app-signing capabilities.

Template-based wizards to create common Android designs and components.

A rich layout editor that allows you to drag-and-drop UI components, preview layouts on multiple screen configurations, and much more.

Built-in support for Google Cloud Platform, making it easy to integrate Google Cloud Messaging and App Engine as server-side components.
