What's New: Android P Developer Preview 4 (Beta 3)

What's New: Android P Developer Preview 4 (Beta 3)”

Those running the public beta on their Pixel devices should also get an update with the July Android security patch on their phones.

In Android P beta 3, you can control the application of either a light or dark theme in Android.

As for the new Android P beta, it's looking like Android P Beta 2, build PPR1.180610.030.

Though it's Beta 3, this is also Developer Preview 4 - the first Developer Preview wasn't in the Beta channel - with a final Developer Preview (DP5) expected to be released just prior to the launch of Android P according to the Android P Developer Preview timeline. From the sound of it, there shouldn't be too major major visible tweaks this time out - Google brought a number of those with Beta 2.

There's enough reason (and, now, enough stability) to join the Android public beta if you don't want to wait until August to try out this year's changes.

As Google says, the goal of the beta is really to allow developers to get their apps ready or the new features, while having the added benefit of a massive network of testers to help the firm stamp out flaws ahead of the public release.

We're conflicted because Google's described the new release as "an early release candidate build" and says the full release is due "later this [northern] summer". Android P's final name is not confirmed, but this will be version 9 of Android. Today, the company announced the fourth developer preview, or the third beta. Among the system tools available here are multi-camera support, enhanced notifications, display cutout (notches for days) and ImageDecoder. However, Nexus phones will not be getting Android P.
