Google ends major OS support for Nexus phones and Pixel tablet

MARCH ANDROID SECURITY UPDATE NEXUS PIXEL

The first developer preview of Android P introduces a couple of new features, but there isn't a lot to get excited about just yet.

Given how the smartphone "notch" isn't going away, Google is including support for cutout displays in Android P - it'll make it easier for developers to manage how a screen cutout affects an apps content. Now, with Android P, it's expanding and improving this API, with Neural Networks API 1.1. 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.

After checking with Google, we confirmed that this isn't a fluke of the developer preview program-the Nexus 5X, 6P, and Pixel C won't be getting the final release of Android P. While they will still receive monthly security updates, Android 8.1 was the last major Android release for the Nexus phones and Pixel tablet. This should open up new capabilities for apps, so that they can access streams simultaneously from two or more cameras.

Because Android P is now in developer preview, it's unclear which features might be included in the final release that goes out to the public. The preview includes an updated SDK with system images for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, and the official Android Emulator. "JobScheduler then manages work according to the network status", the post said.

Autofill improvements: New APIs that allow password managers to improve the Autofill user experience, such as better dataset filtering, input sanitization, and compatibility mode.

To get started with Android P, developers can find all the necessary instructions and downloads here. With Android P, developers will be able to access each stream separately or fuse them depending on what they are trying to achieve. A hardware abstraction layer (HAL) provides the underlying API for enumerating a variety of Secure Elements (eSE, UICC, and others).

Power efficiency: Doze, App Standby, and Background Limits have been refined to further improve battery life.

More details and information will be forthcoming during the development process. While your app's UID is idle, the microphone reports empty audio and sensors stop reporting events.
