Android launches Shush and Wind Down to keep your phone off when it needs to be off

Android P's new gestures aren't enabled by default in the public beta, but you can enable them from the Settings app. We found evidence that the feature was on its way to desktop Google Chrome soon, and now, the feature is finally available to use if you do not mind using an extension. Here are the all the main features as unveiled at its Google I/O developer conference on Tuesday.

Have you been running the Android P developer beta on a non-Pixel device?

Those with a Google Pixel or Pixel 2, Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21 or Essential PH-1 can head to the Android beta test page to enrol their devices.

The future of Android P includes another three Beta releases over the next few months, with the final build expected to be released in Quarter 3 this year - likely just before the Pixel 3 launch which is expected around the end of September or beginning of October.

Will anyone else ever get it?

When exactly the links will be back is still unknown, but it shouldn't take too long.

Well, Google is apparently trying to make things easier for users in this regard. Android P is getting rid of the three screen buttons, which have for always been associated with operating system, and instead implementing one single home button. You can then tap on a Slice to launch its action immediately, without having to fire up the app.

The lack of a "clear all" button makes closing standby apps a bit more time-consuming, and Google is taking note of it. However, on Android P, you have to manually swipe away each app individually.

Google also showed off tools focused on "digital wellbeing", created to prevent smartphone addiction.

You'll also be able to set a Wind Down timer before your anticipated bed time, with the screen slowly fading to black and grey in order to encourage you to put the phone down and go to sleep.

When installing a new app, you have to click "accept" to give the program access to your location, camera and microphone. Android P still retains the back button for that, but the button only appears in certain apps and it doesn't have a unified function.

Android P has an added feature of editing a screenshot after taking it just like the iPhone X. In previous Android versions, no edit feature was introduced.

The changes follow a recent tightening of control over how and when apps run that were made with Android Nougat and Android Oreo, primarily to prolong battery life and performance.
