Already the next runner of Android Oreo, new exclusive Android P features has been released. The official name of P has not yet been disclosed. It will be released when the full version is released. In this article, we shall be recalling all the desserts that debut with the Android P.
On May 8, Google launched its annual developer conference, Google I / O 2018, to unveil the next Android version of Android P, along with Google’s AI technology. Android P has more interesting changes than Android Oreo announcement. I only saw 5 new exclusive Android P features
1. Exclusive Android P features: Support notch-gesture type
Android P will support UI for notch displays so that content, notifications and status icons can be displayed well on the Notch display smartphone. It is called ‘display cutout’.
The “gesture method” similar to that of iPhone X showed was also introduced. You can return to the home screen by pressing the tab shape button at the bottom of the screen. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to see the app you used. Swipe one more here to get an app drawer. The tab button also acts as a slider. If you look at the beta version, it may take some time to get used to.
2. Exclusive Android P features: Block access when idle
When you install an app on your smartphone, the app asks you to allow access to photos, cameras, notifications, and microphones. Then the user clicks Allow. By doing this, the user has granted full control of the smartphone to the app.
Interestingly, Android P blocks access to your microphone, camera, and network when your phone is idle, even if it’s a location-granting app.
3. Exclusive Android P features: The left and right sides of icons positions have been changed.
There are minor but very big changes. The time display position has moved from upper right to upper left. The network signal, Bluetooth display moved to the right. While supporting the notch display, it is a good idea to change the position.
4. Exclusive Android P features: The Digital detox help
Smartphone addiction is a peculiarity these days. Everyone has a lot of smartphones, so I’m going to call it an addiction. Google has proposed the concept of “digital wellness” in this I / O 2018, simply to help keep it apart from the digital world.
Android P can check the app usage time. You can also set time limits. You can also set your phone to be automatically rejected if you turn it over on your desk. < The verge > “The parents had the ability to restrict the use of children smartphone, there was no service in adults can set their own restrictions,” he said.
The features that are released are as follows.
- Dashboard: Shows device usage time, app usage time, apps you use most often, unlocks, and the number of notifications you receive.
- App Timer: Limit app usage time.
- Wind Down: Do not disturb mode. When it is time to sleep, everything is displayed in grayscale. I’m also blocking all notifications.
This feature is not yet available in Android P beta. Even if you try to read a book, you will still need to open your smartphone because you won’t see the smartphone light flashing or the vibration ended. I would like to use digital detox, but I think this feature would be quite helpful for people who have a bit of willpower like me.
5. Exclusive Android P features: Nexus · Pixel phone can also be used in beta
Android P will be officially released this fall, but you can try out the beta version before then. Until now, the beta version was limited to Google Nexus or Pixel phones, but some smartphones could download the beta version. Google said in a developer blog that “early adopters and developers all over the world are encouraged to use Android P Beta on one of these devices.”
