Indoor Positioning with Wi-Fi RT - Android P adds platform support for the IEEE 802.11mc Wi-Fi protocol-also known as Wi-Fi Round-Trip-Time (RTT)-to let you take advantage of indoor positioning in your apps. This one is codenamed "P", and your guess is as good as ours as to what dessert-themed name the final version of the software will receive. The company's shared a ton of technical details about the OS in a blog post, and is planning to reveal more user-facing additions at its annual Google I/O conference in May this year.
There will be a multi-camera API so the Android app is able to request data from more than one camera sensor at a time. Support for display cutouts is arguably important - we have seen a couple of new iPhone X-clones powered by Android at MWC last month, most of which don't really work very well with the display cutout.
With the release of the first Developer Preview for Android P, we have been given a new easter egg. They say that the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P are fine phones and Google should have supported them with the Android P. Developers will have to make sure that everything looks neat even with a notch when creating their apps.
With the Google Photos update, Lens will gain the ability to recognize popular landmarks that are included in the photos saved in Google Photos. Keep in mind that this update is intended for developers to get their apps ready for Android P and may be buggy, so you may not want to install the update on your daily driver.
Well, the Android P is out, as you may already know. Users can reply to messages inside the notifications themselves. So the build needs to be installed manually. You will need to be comfortable using command line tools, and wiping your device for a fresh start with Android P. The official release of Android P should follow sometime in the fall, if you'd rather skip beta testing altogether.
The Android P operating system has a couple of brand new transition animations which seem pretty fantastic.
