How to install Android P Beta on your smartphone

But it would be more surprising to hear that the Android P Beta Version will not only be launched on the Google Pixel but on the various other smartphones like Nokia, Vivo, OnePlus, Sony, Oppo, and others.

One of the biggest changes to the operating system itself is the addition of gesture navigation. This will give you more overall battery life-always a plus. Users can use the "Home" button to navigate the background apps. More importantly, you can feel free to jump into your media or other apps while Maps navigation is running, since the turn-by-turn readout is also pushed to a secondary display in the middle of the dashboard. The new interface is interactive as well, with a built-in search bar and the option to copy text from specific apps without actually opening them. It's common to look at your smartphone and realize that all the apps you've left open have sucked away the battery life.

"Using that knowledge, Android adapts to your usage patterns so that it only spends battery power on the apps you'll need", they wrote in the post.

You can also use it for everything you would use the Assistant for, such as setting timers, answering questions, and even placing grocery orders.


Google revealed that the machine learning is the core of Android P. However, it makes smartphone advanced and makes it easier for the smartphone to learn and adapt from the user.

A "wind down" mode would fade the screen to gray at a designated time to help you disconnect before bed.

Right now the new OS is simply called "Android P" but you can expect it to get a cuter name later this year when it's released to the public.

Wondering how split-screen works in this new setup? Once this is done, you'll notice the usual three-button virtual bar changes to become a single home button and a back button (the latter disappears when not relevant).
