Google Unveiled Android P Public Beta

Duplex, Android P and Assistant: Everything important from Google I/O

Screen rotation will be more of an easier task with Android P. When you rotate your phone a small button will show on your screen and by tapping on it the screen will switch to landscape mode and Portrait mode according to the gesture.

Digital Wellbeing - your phone will let you know how many times you've been distracted by a notification, how many times you've unlocked it, and how many hours in total you've spent staring at its screen.

Developer Preview 2 of Android P introduces an "enhanced" battery saver mode that shuts down nearly the same set of things, but introduces a new "power-efficient" watch face. It took some getting used to on the iPhone X but after six months, I find it much more seamless to use than a home button. For the first time, these are not restricted to Google's handsets.

Keep in mind that, unlike Apple, Google doesn't really force its user experience on Android phone makers. It's not MIUI-based so there aren't any new features not already available on the Google Pixel devices. Users on such phones will have to flash the update on their phones manually. Post signing-up, users will get a prompt on their Pixel device about the update being available and that it can be installed. Now, Lens will be faster to use because it'll be right there in your camera app. Head over to this link to download and install Android P beta on your device.

Ford suspends F-150 production due to parts shortage
As a result, we have cancelled production shifts in certain areas and adjusted production hours for our team members this week. All told, 7,600 workers at the two plants will be directly impacted, 4,000 of them in Dearborn, 3,600 in Kansas City.

The improvements include more natural pauses "that have meaning" and other subtleties to help create a "more natural dialogue" with Assistant.

Google 's next version of Android has new tools that will help users fight their smartphone addiction.

Google Maps will also enable the next generation of Sensus to provide refreshed map and traffic data in real time, keeping drivers informed about upcoming traffic situations and proactively suggesting alternative routes. After all, you still just have a navigation bar area that is using up screen space, only now it's filled with semi-confusing swipes instead of simple tapping. If you own one of the devices above, feel free to bookmark it and check periodically to see when Google has gotten around to third-party support.
