Android P Developer Preview 1: What's New?

Ars Technica confirmed with Google, saying that those device will not be getting Android P when it's officially released to the public.

The Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and Pixel C tablet got the Android 8.1 Developer Preview, however the company is dropping the support for these devices with the upcoming, Android P operating system.

Android P introduces several enhancements to notifications, all of which are available to developers targeting Android P and above. The new indoor positioning is created to location-based service solutions while the display cutout support allows apps to take advantage of fullscreen content.

Google showcased its Lens app to the world at its developer's conference I/O in 2017. Messages that pop up can also include suggested ways to answer them from Google's Smart Reply feature.

Google will provide the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL with three years of software support.

Google is making several notification tweaks with Android P, too.

Multiple cameras is becoming more and more common these days, so Google added a new multi-camera API to Android P - it lets developer access "multiple streams" from two (or more) camera lenses.

The final version of Android P will be available for download on the Pixel devices mentioned above at some point in the third quarter of the year, likely in August. In Google's blog post announcing Android P, it mostly focused on key features as well as app-building tools for developers. Google also promises to roll out this feature to iOS devices soon.

Google Lens is now rolling out to all Android users via Google Photos.

Android P is the newest version of Android. When Android P arrives, there won't be a surprise release for the Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X. You can download and manually flash the compatible build for your device using this link. Now, we have known that Android 8.0 Oreo has come with some minor interface and UI changes from Android Nougat whereas there are some more changes in Android 8.1 Oreo which was released at the end of a year ago.
