Google announces Android P, now available in developer preview

Android folks rejoice as Google brings Lens to all Google Photos users

Google has announced Android P, the next major version of its mobile operating system. Android P introduces support for the IEEE 802.11mc Wi-Fi protocol, also known as Wi-Fi Round Trip Time (RTT), which allows you to take advantage of indoor positioning in your apps. Perhaps the most notable is official support for displays with a notch. If you have one of these devices, you can try out Android P for yourself, but Google has revealed that we'll have to wait until Q3 for the final release.

Apart from these features, the Android P developer preview also comes along with support for multi-camera, built-in support for HDR VP9 video, improvements to Autofill framework, new Neural Networks API, and more.

Google's Android P is expected to bring some great upgrades to the OS, but older hardware such as the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and the Pixel C tablet won't get a taste of it. "On devices with either dual-front or dual-back cameras, you [developers] can create innovative features not possible with just a single camera, such as seamless zoom, bokeh, and stereo vision", Burke said. It can even enable a "fused camera stream" that auto-switches between two or more cameras. Moreover, Google has also added support for Smart Replies in the notification so that you can quickly reply to messages. As is the normal policy, the devices will continue to receive security updates for at least until November. "The new DisplayCutout class lets you find out the location and shape of the non-functional areas where content shouldn't be displayed". In Android P, however, the dock regains its rightful status by being represented by a semi-transparent shade of white.

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway return to present Best Picture at Oscars
An Oscars source told TMZ that Faye, 77, started their rehearsal segment by saying: "Presenting is better the second time around". In 2017 Dunaway read the wrong best picture victor after the pair was handed the best actress category envelope.

For improved performance, Google has added small changes that control power efficiency in Android, including Doze, Standby and Background Limits. Replies can also be saved as drafts in Android P should a user mistakenly close the notification. You can download and manually flash the compatible build for your device using this link. That actually ended for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P previous year with Android 8.0 Oreo.
