There are a couple of other new things in the first developer preview of Android P, including support for HEIF and new indoor positioning features. This one is codenamed "P", and your guess is as good as ours as to what dessert-themed name the final version of the software will receive.

Display cutout support - Android P offers support for the latest edge-to-edge screens with display cutout for camera and speaker. However, this preview won't be released to the Android Beta Program, which allows users to get early Android builds via OTA (over-the-air) updates on select devices.

As far as the notable changes for developers are concerned, "Android P restricts access to mic, camera and all SensorManager sensors from apps that are idle". With more and more Android devices launching with an iPhone X-like notch, Google seems to have given in on the trend.

As this is a preview build, it is not only not aimed at the masses, but is also only compatible with a handful of Android phones - specifically the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The API also supports a camera stream that automatically switches between two or more cameras.

With notifications from every messaging app they will all include recent lines from conversations if users want to reply inline right inside the notification.

Let's have a look at what the Android P developer preview has in store for the users. Before then, we'll get five developer previews.

Another feature coming with Android P is Wi-Fi Round-Trip-Time (RTT) support. The release came as a surprise, as we expected Android P to be unveiled in mid-March, with the incoming Pi Day being a likely candidate for the event.

With Android P, Google has made some improvements to messaging notifications.
