Here are the devices that support the Android P Beta Program

Google isn't selling the kit directly, although the link to Technexion is included on Google's developers site, so it seems to be a source that Google is officially endorsing and not just a third-party reseller. Most will be released soon or throughout the summer. IO 2018 highlights like Shush, Wind down and Dashboard, ones that aim to improve your digital well-being, are omitted from this current beta release.

For better navigation, Google announced a new version of Maps that will bring augmented reality to your phone. New features have been shown off for Android P, Google Assistant, Android Auto, ARCore, and much more.

Moving forward, whenever a background app uses your device's microphone or camera, Android will display a notification. The Google Assistant feature uses lifelike audio to, for example, book a haircut.

Every new Android version comes with at least some security improvements.

That doesn't mean you can't interact via touch with these apps at all. They're essentially shortcuts that let you do more with fewer taps.

Powered by Google's artificial intelligence foundation, Google Lens works by automatically identifying objects when users open the camera app on their phones.

Are you addicted to your phone? Normally, you wouldn't want data stored in the cloud to be protected by a PIN or pattern because those types of codes are weak and can be easily bruteforced. For one, Google says - for now, anyway - that you can't download and install apps while you're driving. The first will make it easier to set up a new device. This way, your media is neither too loud, nor is it too quiet.

The death of the Nexus Player left Android TV without a developer device.

We're already getting used to suggested replies in Gmail, Allo and the Reply app. After all, you still just have a navigation bar area that is using up screen space, only now it's filled with semi-confusing swipes instead of simple tapping.

"Many of us feel tethered to our phones and worry about what we'll miss if we're not connected". Over on the Android Developer blog, the company is highlighting some key features for developer preview 2, which launches this week.

Being able to split your screen into two for multitasking was revolutionary when it was announced.

The biggest news here is the addition of an "enhanced battery saver mode".

This one sound weird, but part of the design philosophy behind Android P is all about creating some space between you and your phone.

Google said it will roll out the technology, called Duplex, as an experiment in coming weeks. At the same time, it's such an obviously useful feature. Then at 1 p.m. you have margaritas.

This is a bold change, not just for Android, but for the tech world as a whole.

The Google Assistant is about to get more conversational than ever.
