Android P Comes with New Bluetooth Feature

Android P Comes with New Bluetooth Feature

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.

Android P is already getting people excited to try out all its features.

One of the most significant changes for Android P is a new app switcher.

It was the first time a black woman headlined the two-weekend festival, one of the biggest USA music gatherings of the year. Each university will select its own finalists and victor , with winners set to be announced sometime this summer.

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". The apps may appear to be violating COPPA or the terms of service of the Google Play Store, but it is up to the Federal Trade Commission and Google to determine the truth behind the violations. Its Home button is now pill-shaped - like iPhone X's but smaller - and the recent apps button is gone. Like on iPhone X, users get into the app switcher by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. Rather than the usual three keys "back, home and multitasking" that have been in Android for years, the Android P just has two keys which are "back and iPhone X-style home" keys. However, the back button is still there, which according to Stephen Hall from 9to5Google, is only shown contextually.

This feature might not necessarily make it into the final version of Android P. The company is known to make experiments with features that might be cut or modified by the time a new Android version is released.

A new report now shares more details about how Google's new navigation works, revealing that Google has definitely borrowed a few things from Apple's iPhone X, but it hasn't copied everything Apple did. From what we know, Google is supposed to fully unveil Android P at the I/O 2018 conference.
