Android 9.0 Developer Preview available for download

Android folks rejoice as Google brings Lens to all Google Photos users

Google recently announced it will be committed to get more devices on modern Android operating systems.

There are a couple of other new things in the first developer preview of Android P, including support for HEIF and new indoor positioning features.

Interestingly, Google is offering native support for screen cutouts and notches that so many smartphone manufacturers are trying to imitate.

Building software to account for this design choice can be a hassle for developers, so Google's Android P will include new "display cutout" tools that can make apps notch-friendly, the company said in a blog post.

So, yes, you can expect more iPhone X-looking Android devices in the future.

Google has released the first developer preview of the next version of Android.

The Android P Developer Preview is now only open to owners of the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

It's even providing a new Multi-Camera API for devices with dual rear- or front-facing cameras.

Then, conceding that Moscow 'meddled, ' the president said the country is much better prepared because of. paper! The PBS NewsHour will update this story as it develops . "You have to be very vigilant", Trump said.

Google itself is calling it a baseline build, meant only to help developers prepare their apps for the full version.

Google is once again limiting the developer beta program to its own devices.

You can download the Google Photos app from Google Play to start using Google Lens on your Android device.

The Android P operating system has a couple of brand new transition animations which seem pretty unbelievable. It also introduced support for the IEEE 802.11mc Wi-Fi protocol.

- New notification system comes with several enhancements, including allowing users to attach images in the quick replies without going into the app.

So, let's dive right into what Android P offers this time around. To begin the aspect of the notifications, it will change as smart responses could arrive, similar to those we have seen in Gmail. So the build needs to be installed manually.

It should go without saying that as this is such an early preview, it is likely to be pretty unstable and lacking numerous features and refinements that will eventually find their way into Android P, but this developer preview is here for the curious to try out.
