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

Android P will allow you to use your phone as a Bluetooth mouse or keyboard

More new features and capabilities will be released in subsequent developer previews, and eventually enrollments will be taken through the Android Beta Program. Android P will warn users with a dialog when they install an app that targets a platform earlier than Android 4.2 (targetSdkVersion less than 17), and future platform versions will continue to increment that lower bound.

Google will also restrict access to private APIs in Android.

Who Is Ruthie Ann Miles? Pregnant Actress' Daughter Killed In Tragic Crash
Dorothy attempted to flee the scene, according to eyewitnesses, only stopped after crashing into a auto . Our friend @ RuthieAnnMiles has suffered an unimaginable loss and is pregnant and in critical condition.

Google has also improved visibility and function in notifications with Android P. The new Messaging Style notification will highlight who is messaging and how the user can reply.

Of course, the final Android P release coming in Q3 2018 doesn't mean that that'll be when everyone gets the update. For instance, Google added "display cutout" support in Android P - a full-throated recognition/acceptance of iPhone X-like notches. Google has traditionally hid an easter egg inside these previews as a hint to what the codename of the OS will be called, and Android P is no exception.

Student, 19, shoots parents dead at university campus, sets off manhunt
Klaus, the campus police lieutenant in MI , said anyone who sees Davis shouldn't confront him, but needs to call 911. Central Michigan University has about 23,000 students in Mount Pleasant, which is about 70 miles north of Lansing .

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. Google is pushing even their internal teams to only use public APIs, but are mindful that certain functions are only available to private APIs and will work to make some of these public. RTT stands for "round-trip time", and it lets your phone measure distances between WiFi access points without actually connecting to them. Android P is introducing a new multi-camera API that will let developers use multiple cameras on a device that's packed with more than one camera. Carriers can report networks as being congested or unmetered and JobScheduler then manages work according to the network status.

To get started with Android P, developers can find all the necessary instructions and downloads here. Along with bug fixes, this preview includes new APIs that allow password managers to enhance the Autofill user experience using better dataset filtering, input sanitization, compatibility mode, and more. A hardware abstraction layer (HAL) provides the underlying API for enumerating a variety of Secure Elements (eSE, UICC, and others) available.
