Android P is finally here! Android 9.0 (aka Android P) is now available for download in the form of Developer preview 1. This release won’t give you the full experience of Android P as it’s under Google’s cooking mode (and won’t be fully public until Google I/O), but for the lucky Google Device owners, you will be among the first see the face of Android P.
These are the first build of Android P developer preview.
You can download the Developer builds from the links below if you have a compatible Google device.
The Android Beta program will be open later to try out Android 9.0.
You won’t be able to get this updates via Android Beta program. However, the builds come with a flashable zip, that you can install manually. The build is intended for developers only, and it’s not stable enough for daily use. Very soon Google will open up the Beta Program for Android P.
According to the Official Page, here is the quick list major features in Android P:
Display cutout support.
A new look for notifications.
Enhanced messaging experience.
Multi-camera support and camera updates.
ImageDecoder for bitmaps and drawables.
HDR VP9 Video, HEIF image compression, and Media APIs.
Data cost sensitivity in JobScheduler.
Client-side encryption of Android backups.
Channel settings, broadcasts, and Do Not Disturb.
