The new preview of Android peeps in with new notification panel and support.

The multi-camera access allows you to stream simultaneously from multiple physical cameras on devices running Android P. This technology allows you to create brilliant features using dual-front or dual-back cameras. This cannot be achieved through a single camera.

The camera allows you to perform a logical or fused camera stream in which it automatically switches between multiple cameras. There are other improvements which include session parameters which help to reduce delay during the initial capture. The flash-based display support and access to OIS timestamps for app-level image stabilization and added effects increase more advantage to the API. Google is launching an early preview of the major version of Android. The Android P version is available for developer’s preview. It is an early launch, though we haven’t installed it, we still have a lengthy blog about it from Google.

Android-P

This is an easy baseline for developers only. As Google consider developers as its trusted reviewers and testers. The earlier feedbacks from developers had helped Google platform to meet the needs of the users. Google welcomes android developers to review the new Android P and your feedback would help them to come up with a customized output. Eager to know how Android P works?

Let’s Get Started!!!

Understanding Google’s urge on developing Android P, I have decided to make its process really simple. I am going to frame this article with some of the important features that Google has designed in Android P.

Multi-camera API:

The multi-camera access allows you to stream simultaneously from multiple physical cameras on devices running Android P. This technology allows you to create brilliant features using dual-front or dual-back cameras. This cannot be achieved through a single camera.

The camera allows you to perform a logical or fused camera stream in which it automatically switches between multiple cameras. There are other improvements which include session parameters which help to reduce delay during the initial capture. The flash-based display support and access to OIS timestamps for app-level image stabilization and added effects increase more advantage to the API.

Display cutout support:

The full-screen content is an advantage that the API owns which is also a competitive approach. Google wanted to overcome its competitor who has already made use of the methodology on its device.

The cutout support works perfectly for apps along with system managing status bar height to depart content from the cutout. There are possibilities for you to make use of new APIs to check out the cutout shape and demand for a full-screen layout. You can even check for the cutout on the current device by calling getDisplayCutout(), then determine the location and shape of the cutout area using “DisplayCutout”.

A new window layout attribute “layoutInDisplayCutoutMode” helps you to intimate the system how and when to layout your content relative to the cutout area. To make it simpler for you to build and test cutout support in your app, Google has added the developer option that imitates a cutout on any device. It is recommended to test the cutout with an existing app to make sure that your contents are displayed properly.

Better message notifications:

Google has introduced MessagingStyle in Android P to prioritize visibility and functions in notifications. The new “Messaging Style” functionality helps to know who is messaging and how to reply them. You can display conversations, pin photos and stickers and even recommend smart replies.

Find the following images from Google that better explains the functionality,

Neural networks:

The Neural Networks was first introduced in Android 8.1 which helped to accelerate on-device machine learning on Android. In Android-P Google has decided to expand the and improve API adding support for nine-new OPS–Pad, Transpose, Stridden Slice, Mean, BatchToSpaceND, SpaceToBatchND, Div, Sub, and Squeeze. If you are a Pixel-2 user then, the DP1 build will include a Qualcomm Hexagon HVX driver with acceleration for quantized models.

Message Notification

Autofill improvements:

On the other hand, Google is trying to improve the Autofill Framework based on the feedback from developers. This new invention allows password managers to improve the Autofill experience. You will be able to notice a better dataset filtering, input sanitization, and compatibility mode.

The compatibility has much more impact than it is expected to be. Apps that are not complete in Autofill support will be accessed by password managers that take the accessibility-based approach. But this does not impact performance or security.

Reviving android’s foundation:

Google P is still working on a long-time investment to make Android the best platform.

User privacy:

To make sure whether the privacy is good, Android P restricts access to the mic, camera and all sensor manager sensors from apps that are idle. The camera that is used by your app will be disconnected and generates an error message when the app tries to make use of them.

Android P also provides user control while accessing platform’s “build.serial” identifier by throwing it on the READ_PHONE_STATE permission. The direct access to their identifier has been deprecated since Android 8.0. You need to make use of Build.getSerial() method in order to access the build.serial identifier.

ART performance:

Google and its team are trying to bring performance and efficiency improvements to all apps through ART runtime. The team has extended ART’s use of execution profiles to optimize apps and reduce the memory footprint of compiled app code. There are multiple features that are added to make it more effective for developers.

Wrap up:

The information on Android P is a simple brush of the advancements made to the Android System. You could visit Google’s Developer Blog to have a run through on the entire topic.

The Android P’s advancement is highly brought to the notice of the developers to know what their view on the new innovation would be. Developers are welcome to share their ideas or views on Android P which helps Google to make it more user effective. Hope this information helps developers to have an in-depth understanding of Android P.
