Android P offers android gestures like the iPhone X

Nichole VegaMay 10, 2018

Google I/O 2018 is going on and on the first day of the event, the company has officially announced the next version of Android, dubbed as the Android P. The Android P has not even given a name yet but the features are out. In addition, there's Adaptive Brightness, which learns your brightness settings depending on your surroundings to automatically adjust it without having to do it manually.

To address the growing omnipresence of smartphones, Google is also introducing new tools to help Android users manage and limit their phone time. If the Android 8.0 Oreo was the wallflower rationalization that concentrated on out of the public view twist, then Android P is an exterior animal and some of it resembles iPhone X. The company also said that Assistant would have more control over the smart displays that they will be launching in July.

Are you addicted to your phone? These new features are starting to roll out to Google Photos from today, and should make their way across the globe in the next couple of months.

Android P, Google's next iteration of its mobile operating system, is getting quite a handful of new features, some of which are created to protect users, their data and their privacy.

With Wear OS DP1, we learned about things like the dark UI becoming the new default, SDK restrictions aimed at improving stability, and new rules for background apps meant to prolong battery life.

Once you realize the extent of your addiction, the new features will help you overcome it.

But Android TV is also getting an update, and Google showed off two new devices that will bring Android to the big (home) screen. It will also give you suggestions on the basis of time, location and recent interactions with the Assistant.

The assistant will be able to answer questions, like, "What service are you looking for?" or "What time are you looking for?"

For a personalized experience, the For You section mixes the local news, important headlines, and topics the user is interested in. There's also a new feature called "Wind down". At that time, Do Not Disturb mode will be activated and the screen will gradually turn monochrome. As mentioned above, the update will be available for the limited number of devices and it is not an open for all the Android device due to hardware limitations. By 2019, the team is hopeful that the TV platform will release on the same timeline as the rest of Android.

Android TV will now suggest specific apps that should auto-download and install during the setup process, however your permission will be asked before installation.
