Hands-on with Google Lens for Android

Google Pixel 2XL

Google was expected to offer the Android P developer preview download this month and that is precisely what the company has done today. The four app icons along with the Google Search bar will have a cloudy background, distinguishing it from the rest of the screen. However, there is one major downside to manually flashing system images and that is the fact that these devices will not automatically receive OTA updates to later Developer Preview milestone builds or the final public release. Actually, there are many more changes regarding Android 8 Oreo, but those announced by Google are mainly focused so that developers can test their applications on Android P. We first saw notches on phones like the iPhone X and Essential Phone past year and it looks like many Android device makers plan on embracing the notch with their 2018 smartphones, so adding official support in Android P is a smart move by Google.

So, yes, you can expect more iPhone X-looking Android devices in the future. It gives us first look at notable changes, improvements and new feature that could come with Android P. Now, Google has four separate system images on its site for all four devices so you will need to cross-check before go ahead with the download. It can even enable a "fused camera stream" that auto-switches between two or more cameras. So, developers can create app that can utilise both the cameras.

Support for images: Android P now displays images in Messaging Notifications on phones.

France wants to set 15 as minimum age for sexual consent
France plans to fix the legal age of sexual consent as 15, meaning sex with someone younger than that would be considered rape. She said a new law would be presented to Council of Ministers - France's equivalent of a cabinet - on March 21.

United Nations chief condemns killing of aid workers by Boko Haram insurgents
In the messages, she informed her friend in Maiduguri that they were under attack and that they had to run to the military base for protection.

With the Google Photos update, Lens will gain the ability to recognize popular landmarks that are included in the photos saved in Google Photos. It also introduced support for the IEEE 802.11mc Wi-Fi protocol. Since Oreo is sweet but has a very limited color range, Android P should bring back the colors, so what about Popsicle?

Other features include power efficiency, and improved app compatibility. Users can reply to messages inside the notifications themselves. Google has made the first preview exclusively available by manual download and flash, to warn that the preview is exclusively for developers, and not intended for consumer use.
