Android P is now officially available for developers

GoogleTech today      Pixel smartphone users come up with battery related issues after its February update
        By William Hazzard

We were expecting Google to release the first developer preview of Android P - the latest version of Android - next week, but, Google has dropped it a week before and it's finally here for all you tinkerers, enthusiasts, and of course, the developers.

The third quarter runs from July 1 through September 30. There are factory images for the Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2, and Google Pixel 2 XL, and you can sideload them right now. At the moment, smartphones have two on the back.

If you dare, you'll enjoy some of these new changes and controls on your Pixel or Pixel 2. That's when Google will release it to AOSP, which device makers can then use to customize for their own devices.

Google Lens is a visual analysis app that provides additional interactivity to your phone's camera and photo roll.

However, ArsTechnica has received word from Google that this is officially the end of the road for those three devices.

That means, for the third year in a row, Google is making a developer preview for the next version of Android available in March - months ahead of a consumer release in the autumn.

Google has added colours into its settings menu for Android P. The "Network and Internet" setting is blue, the "Display" setting is yellow and "Storage" is purple. In fact, the biggest change is the native support for the infamous notch. The API also lets you call a logical or fused camera stream that automatically switches between two or more cameras.

Yep, this is also entirely possible that your favorite Andriod apps and games aren't working one bit on the Android P update. Once Google Assistant is open, there'll be a little icon in the lower right-hand corner. The volume slider has been moved to the side of the screen and shrunk in size. This feature gas been added for devices having dual camera. Some reports from the BGR suggest that if a user wants to update the device manually, he will lose the stored data as it will be erased from the memory after the device is updated manually. This will come in handy during one handed usage. Now, with Android P, Google is expanding the API to support nine new operations. According to the Google page, this new "DisplayCutout class" will help developers find the location and shape of "non-functional areas" where they should not display content.
