Android P: 3 settings to change right away

Android P: 3 settings to change right away

Now you can explore the wide variety of new features that Android P has to offer. Google wants to help users combat smartphone addiction by introducing a new feature in the operating system that allows people set time limits for the apps they use.

Google I/O 2018 has focused largely on machine learning and Android P.

First of all Google intend to make sure that the performance of the device isn't reliant on the hardware, i.e. the TV, as most users of Android TV don't necessary have high end smart TVs.

If you have a compatible phone, just head to the official site and enroll your device in the beta program. "Adaptive Brightness" will allow Android P phones to learn how you set your brightness settings and replicate it in different settings depending on the light.

The Android P Developer Preview 2 is compatible with Sony Xperia XZ2, Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, Vivo X21 UD, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, and the upcoming OnePlus 6 smartphone.

Multi-Tasking: Google removed the "Recent" button you used to use to pull up apps, replacing it with a short swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

New system navigation (between apps and web pages) and new home button functionality. This is why during the new setup process, users will be able to quickly choose the apps from the suggested list.

The feature will be rolled out in the next few weeks as an experiment before being launched more permanently, with its abilities expanded to ordering food from restaurants.

App developers will be able to use a new software kit to integrate Google's speech-to-text and other artificial intelligence capabilities into their own services. Google Maps will now have a StreetView AR overlay that will point you in the right direction by simply pointing your phone at the street.

The app drawer is a major design overhaul which gives a clear nod to screens without bezels (read: with notch). It would not have the multitasking button that shows all the apps running in the background. These will effectively pull parts of apps-slices of apps, if you will-and make them available for quick access to simple functions. For that, you're better off holding down a button on the steering wheel and asking Google Assistant for some help.
