Every year the search engine giant Google comes up with the latest version of Android OS and opens the new horizons for Android app development domain. This year, we have recently got an Android P or Android 9 version as a Developer Preview. However, the Android fanboys have to wait a little longer as the final rollout of the newest version will be available between May to August, most likely during the Google I/O 2018 event in August. Also, after the public release, the users of Pixel smartphones will get it first. But yes, we have a sneak peek of Android P here:
What does ‘P’ stand for?
It all started with Android 1.6 when the company gave it the name Donut. Since then, all the Android updates are being given the name of sweet treats. What’s more, all the names are in alphabetical order. The tradition has remained intact till the release of Android 8 or Oreo. And there is no reason to think that Google will end it soon. Now the question arises: What is P in Android 9? Some say the name could be Android Pie, Android Pecan Pie or Android Pineapple Cake. However, internally Google calls the upcoming version as an Android Pistachio Ice Cream.
What is your take on it?
Whatever the name could be, the main thing is features. Let’s have a glimpse of a few noteworthy characteristics of Android 9.
What’s new in Android P?
Minor Changes Major Impact
Have you seen the Pixel XL or Pixel 2 XL phone with Oreo software in it? The phone has a date and day of the week displayed underneath the time in Ambient Display. The Android P comes with the overhauling of Ambient Display, and you cannot see the date and day below the time. But, app notification icons will be displayed as it is in the newest version. More updates to Ambient Display are also likely in the beta versions.
Google has done another minor change at the screen’s bottom. You can see the battery percentage at the bottom so that there is no need to wake your phone just to know how much juice is left.
Let us wait until May when we get the public beta version of Android P. But, it is fair to mention that every newer version of Android narrows down the gap with its Apple counterpart.
