Android P feature spotlight: The Pixel Launcher's dock is now shaded

The Assistant inside Google Photos in all Android devices will now be able to hover through images and pull out relevant information.

Mobile World Congress brought quite a selection of Android devices that tried to mimic the iPhone X by building in a notch, so it's probably a good thing that the Android team is catering to this trend fast. The change basically makes it possible to see more of a conversation within a notification window instead of just the initial message, attach photos and stickers, and suggest smart replies. The Android P developer preview has few more interesting changes and tweaks added to it, some of them include support for Wi-Fi RTT (Round-Trip-Time) improved autofill and overall improved performance.

Google released the first Android P developer preview on Wednesday, sharing some details about the main features it planned for Android's evolution. It will showcase all the new features of the operating system at the Google I/O and will finally roll-out the Android P later this year in October. Android P will also help push developer and users both to run more current apps - it'll show a dialog box when you try and install an app that targets versions of Android earlier than 4.2. Anyone can download it, but Android P is not yet intended for consumer use. Google has also gone on and also added a comprehensive guide to flashing the device if one is not too sure about how to go about it.

Google Assistant is now limited to some Android devices. For example, apps running in the background of Android P will not be allowed to access the phone's microphone or camera.
