How to install Android P right now

How to install Android P right now

Building a slide deck, pitch, or presentation?

Following the release of the first Android P Developer Preview today, you may have wondered why the only devices you can install it on are the original Pixel and Pixel XL, as well as the Pixel 2 and 2 XL.

Google has announced there will be five Android P Developer Previews ahead of a final release in "Q3". This build won't be released to the Android Beta Program, and you'll need to flash it manually. For one, there's a giant transparent shade at the bottom of the home screen which, I guess, is supposed to indicate you can swipe up from there to access the app drawer. These releases occasionally come out for supported Google devices, giving developers a heads-up on what changes to expect from a coming release. There's even a developer option that simulates a cutout on any device. "A new window layout attribute, layoutInDisplayCutoutMode, lets you tell the system how and when lay out your content relative to the cutout area". The new version will include several new tools for developers and features for end users.

A whole host of other improvements will be included, ranging from things like better, more consistent fingerprint security support to a default Network Security Configuration that blocks cleartext traffic. This should open up new capabilities for apps, so that they can access streams simultaneously from two or more cameras.

ImageDecoder for bitmaps and drawables - this gives developers easier way to decode images to bitmaps or drawables. Messaging notifications can now highlight who is sending the message, show images, suggest smart replies, and more.




Data cost sensitivity in JobScheduler - this allows developers to manage scheduled tasks or work across Doze, App Standby, and Background Limits.

Jobs can now declare their estimated data size, signal prefetching, and specify detailed network requirements-carriers can report networks as being congested or unmetered. According to the post, the API will support the following operations: Pad, BatchToSpaceND, SpaceToBatchND, Transpose, Strided Slice, Mean, Div, Sub, and Squeeze.

Along with the new features, Android P will optimize and improve foundational aspects of Android such as ART performance, power efficiency, app compatibility, security, and privacy, while also better optimizing Kotlin.

At the time, Google's neural network API supported on-device model creation, compilation, and execution, meaning you could not only build a model as required on the device, but you could also run it.
