Google Lens Begins Rollout For Non-Pixel Android Phones

The third quarter runs from July 1 through September 30. Android P will be supporting HDR VP9 Video, HEIF image compression, and newly-refactored media APIs, the post said. So either two on the back or two on the front.

Minus those devices, it appears that Google’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will not longer receive love because they’re being dropped.

Google has confirmed that the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P smartphones, as well as the Pixel C tablet, will not have access to the Android P update.

Finally, oogle has warned developers that Android P will warn users when they install applications adapted for versions prior to Android 4.2 to force them to update their SDK. You can take a look at the differences between Android Oreo and Android P launcher in the above screenshot.

Furthermore, Google is now requesting all the developers to come up with their application which would be compatible with the new Android P Operating System so the future Android P running devices can test out their applications. In fact, the biggest change is the native support for the infamous notch. However, there is no word on when the service for Assistant will roll out and which flagship devices will be getting the feature.

A whole host of other improvements will be included, ranging from things like better, more consistent fingerprint security support to a default Network Security Configuration that blocks cleartext traffic. The four app icons along with the Google Search bar will have a cloudy background, distinguishing it from the rest of the screen.

In our experience, Google Lens offered mixed results.

We checked our OnePlus 5T and Elephone U Pro to see if the feature was available and it is for both.

As well as these new features, Google is improving a number of things in Android P including Security with a more consistent interface for prompting for fingerprints, as well as moving to Transport Layer Security (TLS) for transmitting text.

However, ahead of the Google’s I/O 2018 slated to be held in May, the company is rolling out the update to its Google Photos app.
