Android P is getting this seriously useful new Bluetooth feature

Android P is getting this seriously useful new Bluetooth feature”

Google mistakenly leaked an unannounced Android P feature, a new navigation menu that looks a lot like the iPhone X's gesture-based navigation.

The operating system's refreshed user interface features a multitasking interface that looks like it was pulled straight from iOS - as well as a familiar virtual Home button.

Do you want this feature to be on your Android P? Some of them will make iPhone switchers feel right at home.

According to the findings of a new study, 3,337 Android apps geared toward kids and families are improperly collecting data on children, and all of them are now available on the Google Play Store.

Out of the 5,855 Android apps that are included in the Designed for Families program of the Google Play Store, the study found that 28 percent of them "accessed sensitive data protected by Android permissions", while an alarming 73 percent of the apps "transmitted sensitive data over the internet". In this version, apps are displayed side-by-side and can be scrolled horizontally.

Google has made big changes to the navigation bar, too.

The gesture to activate multitasking seems identical to the iPhone X, as you swipe up and hold. Its Home button is now pill-shaped - like iPhone X's but smaller - and the recent apps button is gone.

South Korea's Fair Trade Commission has reportedly begun investigating Google Play over allegations that the USA tech giant's mobile app marketplace abused its market position by pressuring local game publishers to initially launch new mobile games through Google Play only.

Alternatively, you can wait for Google's baked-in solution to launch with Android P later in the year - I/O is set for May 8-10, and we can expect a more stable version of the software to be released around about then.
