Android phones are a part of our everyday life. Android also keeps focusing on improving himself and giving new features to users. Now Android is coming with his new version Android P.
Android P is full of new features
Basically, Android P has not an official name yet but isn’t stopping us from getting excited about new features.
In early May, Google Released Android P for the general public as a beta version.
Here are the features of Android P
1) Android P Adaptive Battery
Android P’s Adaptive Battery feature will learn the apps you use over time and prioritize system resources to them. Android P ignores these apps you hardly ever use until you actually open them.
2) New Screenshot tool
This feature provides the option to edit and delete a screenshot immediately after taking it.
3) Gesture navigation
Are navigation gestures now a thing on Android P. See that pill-shaped button at the bottom of the screen? That replaces the three buttons that previously were used on Android.
The feature is optional, and off by default. You can enable it by going to Settings > Gestures > Swipe up on Home Screen and toggling the switch.
4) Images in message previews
This feature shows the image instead of text as a preview when you select the image file.
5) New Material Design
Android P has a new look overall. Slightly rounded shaped corners of notification and the quick setting pane.
6) Text selection magnification
Google finally got around to copying is a text-selecting magnification box. Meaning, when you begin to move the cursor around within a block of text, you no longer have to guess its exact location.
7) Quick rotation control
There’s nothing more annoying than when your phone’s screen rotates when you don’t want it to.
A new quick rotation toggle shows up in the top-right corner of the screen when moved to landscape orientation. Tap it to let the screen rotate, and then select it once again when you’re ready to go back to portrait mode.
8) Media controls take priority
Prior to Android P, when listening to music and you wanted to adjust the volume of said music, there wasn’t a simple way of doing so. You could use the volume buttons but ultimately would adjust the system volume setting for your phone.
After installing Android P, the volume keys will default to controlling media volume.
Also, notice the new look of the volume controls.
Android P switches to single previews that are placed next to one another horizontally.
Using the gesture pill along with the bottom of the screen, you can scroll through previously open apps or swipe up on an app preview to force-close the app.
10) New settings look
n its marathon attempt to get the Android Settings menu *just* right, Google has once again redesigned it. It’s now more colorful, for starters.
11) App actions
App actions will suggest tasks you commonly carry out within an app, or as they are needed. For example, in this screenshot are two buttons just below the top row of app suggestions. One button suggests I use Google Photos to clear up space on my device, while the other gives me the option to open Slack and quickly switch between teams.
12) Notch support
Android P adds official support for screen cutouts for those hardware makers that decide it’s the only way to move forward with device designs.
