Google Lens rolling out to all Android phones

Google Lens rolling out to all Android phones

The release of the first Android P Developer Preview earlier today brings with it a ton of cool new features that are slated to be in the final version. There was some speculation that older Google devices such as the Nexus 5X, 6P, and Pixel C wouldn't get a final build of Android P and sadly, this seems to be the case.

The preview also includes an updated SDK with system images for testing on the Android Emulator, Pixel, Pixel XL Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices. Visually, other changes include a slight redesign of the notification panel. For example, if a smartphone's cameras have support for zoom or bokeh features, then a third-party app may also use those features.

The Pixel C is also nearing its end. To drive the point home Google is only allowing registered developers to download and install it manually, with over-the-air updates reserved for a future date.

Currently, only the Android P developer preview is available for the Pixel devices. Also bear in mind that installing a system image on a device removes all data from the device, so be sure to backup your data first!

Android P also comes with the IEEE 802.11mc Wi-Fi protocol, known as WiFi Round-Trip-Time, to enhance indoor positioning features in apps. This means that users will be able to take full advantage of the built-in features of the camera software even when they're not using the built-in camera app. Google says that its indoor position solution with an accuracy of 1 or 2 meters.

While not entirely a major update, the new messaging layout with Android P now supports image thumbnails appearing in the notifications window; a feature that still isn't available on Android 7.0 Nougat or Android 8.0 Oreo. Developers will be able to add options and get better use of the cut-out screen.

Truepoint Inc. Buys 530328 Shares of Intel Co
This is a boost from Intel's previous quarterly dividend of $0.27. 30,000 shares were sold by YOFFIE DAVID B, worth $1.35M. Wall Street is only getting more bullish on the stock, with 26 of analysts who cover INTC having a buy-equivalent rating.

Like it has been the case since past few years, Google has been giving us a glimpse of its next-gen Android OS as a part of "developer preview" in March each year, followed by an official introduction in May at Google IO.

Google has released the first developer preview of the next version of Android. This leaves more space free on the right for status icons.

Android P restricts access to a mic, camera, and all SensorManager sensors from apps that are idle.

Security enhancements - Android P introduces a number of new security features, including a unified fingerprint authentication dialog and high-assurance user confirmation of sensitive transactions.

Google is already busy working on the next version of its Android operating system, dubbed Android P for now.

In Android P, the notification will show you the sender as well as the conversation.
