Can't run android on my device with error saying playform android already added

what is weird is that even though I typed ionic cordova platform add android
then platform folder is not generated…i typed all the version and @latest and --save…
but not working.
I made new product as well but same!

Try removing the platform

ionic cordova platform rm android

If the android Folder unter platforms is not deleted after this, delete it by your self.

Then try again.
