Google has included devices from Sony, Xiaomi, Nokia, Oppo, Essential, OnePlus and Vivo as part of the Android P testing process so developers and early adopters can use the new version of Android and offer feedback. Conceptually, this isn't too dissimilar from what the iPhone X incorporated on its Super Retina display and what Duarte's current team has implemented on Android. This is very different from Google's WiFi and Chromecast products, which don't have a ton of public APIs.
Do not disturb is going to become more powerful with a new gesture. In addition, Android P will have AI-powered reply suggestions to help users with their messaging needs. The more you use your phone, the better the AI understands.
Google has independently additionally introduced a fresh Android TV dongle designed for programmers at I/O this year.
Do I love it? It has 8 GB of storage and 2 GB of RAM.
Google collected the Android distribution data by recording active devices visiting Google Play in a seven-day period ending on May 7 -.
The tech giant unveiled a number of "Digital Wellbeing" features for Android at its 2018 I/O conference on Tuesday, aimed at helping users develop healthier relationships with their devices. But when you're in an app, it appears, and you can press Back to navigate back to the previous screen. To that end, Google makes it pretty easy: You can manage up to 100 devices in the Android Things Console for non-commercial use.
"We know the path ahead needs to be navigated carefully and deliberately", he said.
The OS also has new updates in volume control and screen rotation. Called Android P, it's the ninth major version of the Android operating system.
Google Lens, first announced in 2017, is a Shazam-like app for your camera that can identify almost anything your camera sees - like a seeing search engine. Phones using Android P will also learn how to adjust your screen brightness by studying your manual adjustments, a change from automatic adjustments based on the ambient light levels. The team is aiming at improving performance rather than introduce groundbreaking applications and features. Under the program, users will be able to register their feedback in the Android community whenever they encounter any bug. At least, to begin with.
Among them: Is it fair - or even legal - to trick people into talking to an AI system that effectively records all of its conversations?
Android P will also have new navigation changes that will make interacting and multitasking on your phone a more intuitive experience.
