The first Android P developer preview is out - here's what's new


If you're looking to grab the first build of the Android P dev preview you can do so by hitting the button below. Now Google is adding a bunch of new tools for neural networks in Android P: "Pad, BatchToSpaceND, SpaceToBatchND, Transpose, Strided Slice, Mean, Div, Sub, and Squeeze".

Android P has gone official today, and if you were hoping to try it out, there's some good news, and some bad news...

The first preview of Android P also comes with some other important new additions. Messaging notifications can now highlight who is sending the message, show images, suggest smart replies, and more. For example, apps running in the background of Android P will not be allowed to access the phone's microphone or camera.

Manchester United must win next clash with Liverpool
Nemanja Matic bagged the victor in the 91st minute with the Serbian global rocketing a thirty-yard effort into the net. Their second goal made things much more hard for us, but Chris Smalling's goal was very important.

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. There are factory images for the Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2, and Google Pixel 2 XL, and you can sideload them right now. Carriers can report networks as being congested or unmetered and JobScheduler then manages work according to the network status.

Additionally, Autofill improvements will offer better compatibility with password managers, and an implementation of the Open Mobile API will better support secure mobile payments. ART now uses profile information for on-device rewriting of DEX files, with reductions up to 11 percent across a range of popular apps. On supported devices, apps can use the OMAPI API to access secure elements (SE) to enable smart-card payments and other secure services. Google is also working with JetBrains to optimize Kotlin's generated code. Monthly security updates will still continue until at least November 2018. Apps currently in development can now target Android P, so it really shouldn't be hard to find apps that are ready to take advantage of the next Android version. Android now provides a standard system dialog to prompt the user to touch the fingerprint sensor, managing text and placement as appropriate for the device.
