Android P Developer Preview Download Available Now

Google's Android security patch for March now available for Nexus and Pixel devices

Photos might be one of the most beloved Google apps and services and it's always wonderful to see how smart it is at parsing people, pets, things, and locations.

Google Lens is a tool that Google launched previous year, but it has only been available for Pixel users. For instance, Google added "display cutout" support in Android P - a full-throated recognition/acceptance of iPhone X-like notches. Google Lens on these devices is integrated into Google Photos and Assistant.; on the other Android devices, Lens is now being made available in Google Photos.

Google on Wednesday announced Android P is now available through its developer program.

The feature was earlier exclusive to Pixel smartphones and now it seems that the company is finally making it available for other Android devices.

Select phones will also get a Google Lens integration with the Assistant and this will mostly include the flagships from Samsung, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Sony and HMD. Google Lens literally turns your Android phone into a visual search engine.

In Android P, users can expect messaging app notifications to become even more functional than what the current state is.

Google Lens can now identify buildings/landmarks, company logos, cat/dog breeds, text, paintings, movies, etc. If you take a photo of a business card, Lens can create a new contact with the information printed there. However, Google Lens will not work on everything, at least in India. It builds on the features and capabilities offered another app called Google Goggles.

Google released the first developer preview of Android P today, and obviously, people are starting to tear the update to shreds to figure out all its secrets and port features to other versions of Android because fragmentation.
