For example, apps running in the background of Android P will not be allowed to access the phone's microphone or camera.

Android P also continues to improve the Autofill Framework.

Android 8.0 Oreo is installed on barely 1 percent of Android devices around the globe, but Google is already well along in development of its successor.

Google is once again limiting the developer beta program to its own devices. Perhaps the most notable is official support for displays with a notch. (As some commenters noted, it also looks basically like the Patreon logo.) As you scroll up and down, the colors change and the P gets bigger and smaller in a funhouse-like effect.

The release of the first Android P Developer Preview earlier today brings with it a ton of cool new features that are slated to be in the final version.

As for what's included in this update, Google has included quite a few new goodies. Speaking of which, the app drawer also looks different, although I'm not sure if this is due to Android P being as new as it is or not.

Well, as it turns out, there is indeed an Easter egg in Android P Developer Preview 1, but some people may be dissapointed to learn that it's a rather simple one.

Those phones got Oreo, but when P comes out in August or September they will be nearly three years old, so what Google is doing is at least consistent with its own policy.

The company is offering the download to developers only (this ain't no public preview) and are at pains to say it isn't intended daily or consumer use right now.
