Android P Developer Preview released by Google with notch support, notification improvements

Android P Developer Preview

Furthermore, Android P includes native support for multiple cameras, which means that you will be able to use features like zoom, background blur and even stereo vision (3D) within the camera sections of other apps like Snapchat or Instagram.

Minus those devices, it appears that Google's Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will not longer receive love because they're being dropped.

Since the Apple iPhone X started what can be called "the notch revolution", Google will offer support for display cutouts via a new class.

The first developer preview of Android P has just entered the wild. I personally think that anything involving "Pie" is not sweet enough, not to mention that pies do not come in many colors.

It's important to keep in mind, however, that Android P is in beta, and that a lot of things will break or be broken. When Android P arrives, there won't be a surprise release for the Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X. "After 2 years, we can't guarantee more updates", is the policy posted on the Google Nexus website.

If you have any of the above four Andriod phones, you can download and install Android P now. This looks like a nice starting point, though, with Google rolling out several smaller changes that ought to help improve the Android user experience. In order to use the Google Lens in an Android smartphone, all you need to do is to choose a picture from the Google Photos app. The giant has focused on the Pixel series phones and the updates are made available for the Pixel phones of Google only. You can head over to the Source link at the end of the article for more detailed information.

Those developers who have a Pixel device can download the system image and then flash it to their device.

If we talk about the Pixel C tablet, it was also launched during the same period and as per Google's own policy, the Pixel C is also dropping the support for the new Android P Developer Preview updates.

The messaging apps would support the inclusion of "Smart replies", images and stickers directly in the notification.

Google has confirmed that the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P smartphones, as well as the Pixel C tablet, will not have access to the Android P update.
