How to install Android P right now

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. Android P also adds support for multi-camera API which will allow users to access streams simultaneously from two or more physical cameras on the device. The new version will include several new tools for developers and features for end users.

It's going to do that at the I/O 2018 conference later this month and that's also where it's going to reveal the dessert moniker for Android P. The official factory images are now available for download for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and the Pixel 2 XL. Developers will have to manually download and flash this onto their devices to be used for testing and development.

Google just dropped the developer preview of Android P, the next version of its mobile operating system. This is no doubt thanks to Apple and the manufacturers of Android devices who are choosing to copy that design feature. But these new APIs could help hardware makers and app developers better work with these display cutouts going forward, we shall see.

For this preview, Google is releasing Android Things samples in both Kotlin and Java, such as the Button and LED sample.

Google is also addressing the difficulties with location tracking that occurs when a phone and its user are indoors by supporting the WiFi RTT protocol. This will include the ability to access functions like smart replies or attach photo and stickers through the notification interface instead of opening the messaging app. The API also lets you call a logical or fused camera stream that automatically switches between two or more cameras.

So, let's dive right into what Android P offers this time around. In Android P we're expanding and improving this API, adding support for nine new ops - Pad, BatchToSpaceND, SpaceToBatchND, Transpose, Strided Slice, Mean, Div, Sub, and Squeeze. 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.
