  • Android P will intelligently manage battery life based on your predicted usage patterns

Android P is also about being smart. The latest Android P Developer Preview 2 packs tons of new features that were not part of the first developer preview that came out in March. Let's take a look at what each of these new features have to offer.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai speaks during the Google I/O Developers Conference in Mountain View, Calif., on Tuesday, May 8, 2018. I wasn't able to find this in Settings, but it was hiding in plain sight. Google also said it was expanding the ability of the assistant to order food from restaurants including Starbucks Corp and Domino's Pizza Inc.

Other changes are more immediate.

The new App Actions predicts what users want to do next and will suggest apps to assist with that task.

Stock Movements Activity: Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (HMNY)
This is something that Investors should look for in all the stocks they are trading and is an important indicator to keep tabs on. The company reported the earnings of $-9.11/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $-1.27/share.

App Actions will crop up throughout the Android user interface like the Launcher, Smart Text Selection, Play Store, Google Search app and Assistant. You should get a download notification within 24 hours, and once you accept that, the software is installed - all of your existing apps and data should stay in place, like a regular Android update, but we'd recommend doing a full backup anyway, just to be on the safe side. AI is, after all, the core of Google's work and its raison d'être. Google said a test will be available in the coming months. MLKit includes five out-of-the-box APIs, including image labeling and text recognition, which can run on devices or in the cloud. Gesture Navigations is meant to allow users to navigate the system without needing the old navigation bar.

And maybe the most useful new feature will involve an auto-fill option while signing in to your Android TV account. Google also included a subscribe button so people can pay their favorite news sources.

Better yet, holding the home button and sliding it to the right or left will take you directly to the multi-tasking menu.

The fascinating demonstration at the company's developer conference illustrated how the Assistant can make a call on behalf of a user to help them book an appointment.

6 killed in Indonesia prison riot
The network of about two dozen groups has been implicated in a number of attacks in Indonesia over the past year. It claimed that 10 counter-terrorism counter officers have been killed.

For instance, the Dashboard shows how much time you are spending on apps and how many times you've unlocked your phone.

In the interview, Harris pointed to Snapchat "Snapstreaks", which "shows the number of days in a row you've sent a message back and forth to someone". Orientation controls can now be app-specific, a feature that we're very excited about. One can only use the app by removing the previously set time limit.

A series of apps and automatic functions are geared towards helping you spend less time on your mobile device. The new Do Not Disturb mode silences not just the phone calls and notifications, but also all the visual interruptions that pop up on your screen. Turn your phone over so it's face down and it will automatically enter DND, or "Shush" mode. And there's another feature called Wind Down, which turns on Night Light when it's dark and activate DND and fade the screen to grayscale at your chosen bedtime.

It's not surprising some of the larger Android OEMs are not on board here.
