Google Releases Android P First Developer Preview (DP1), Download available

We also cant confirm that all the below mentioned features will be available in the final release.

It is possible to avoid having your device data wiped but you'll need to wait until Google starts making the first developer preview available as an OTA, which it might not do and instead decide to wait until the second developer preview build and beyond.

Those phones got Oreo, but when P comes out in August or September they will be nearly three years old, so what Google is doing is at least consistent with its own policy.

The preview has an updated SDK with system images for both Pixel and Pixel 2 plus their XL devices and the Android Emulator.

Google's developer preview betas are exactly that, an early developer preview. This version of Android became the successor to the previously released version of Android which was named as Android 7.0/7.1 Nougat.

For developers, Kotlin is getting pushed to the front as a first class developer language with compiler optimisations in the Android SDK.

As expected, Android P brings support for the notch, something that Apple popularized with the iPhone X and is now being widely embraced by Android OEMs.

Android Oreo is running on just over 1% of all Android devices right now, but that hasn't stopped Google from announcing the developer preview for Android P. Recently, Google Photos also got an update, courtesy which users could turn their pictures into themed movies. Google said it's expanded and improved this API, adding support for nine new ops. The number one question on everyone's mind is not answered by the launch; we still do not know what the "P" in Android P stands for. Third of all, apps will now be able to access secure elements and enable smart card payments using the Open Mobile API for NFC payments. From the screenshots, we can also see messages including photos & stickers are directly shown in the notification panel. Additionally, Google says it'll help support "disambiguated" voice control; that would let users say something like "turn on this light" and have the Google Assistant understand where you are and what light you're talking about. The announcement is a big one for Android users.
