As expected, Google is also settings its sights firmly on improving the performance and security of Android with its latest OS update. As of now, there are high chances that the Android P will be named as Android Peppermint.

If you are an Android user and have Google Photos installed, get ready to experience Lens. Android P also continues Android's steady improvements for the Autofill Framework and power efficiency (via Doze, App Standby and Background Limits). Now, the Android P Developer Preview 1 is available for Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL so you can download the binary images or OTA files.

Here're Some Biggest Changes in Android P

With the iPhone X that came with a huge notch on the top of the display, Apple changed how the iOS the users interact with their devices. Additionally, the platform-holder is coughing up support for a "logical or fused camera stream that automatically switches between two or more cameras" as well as display-based camera flashes (finally). Then they can experiment further with how their apps will work with that cutout in place.

And as always, we end with an invite: don't be a stranger and join our community - be a part of the conversation where we help each other out, discuss the latest and greatest, and make the best of our tech. Just like any other phone maker, Google wants to launch handsets with interesting new features that give it a slight edge over the competition. Moreover, Google has also added support for Smart Replies in the notification so that you can quickly reply to messages. The app allows smart replies to display within the notification bar for a variety of apps, including Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Slack.


At the time, Google's neural network API supported on-device model creation, compilation, and execution, meaning you could not only build a model as required on the device, but you could also run it. This build is out about as early in the development process as possible, making way for app developers to create their apps with optimizations for P well in advance of its release.

There will be a multi-camera API so the Android app is able to request data from more than one camera sensor at a time.
