With Android P the user can just press the volume up button and the power button at the same time to turn the ringer off. The Android P operating system will be the fore-runner for the company's latest achievments in the field of AI.
Another feature which is hidden is the split view feature.
Google is touting Android P as its smartest update with machine learning at its core. 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.
As a developer, App Actions and Slices bring visibility to your apps, and many of Android P's other new features allow you to optimise apps for customer preferences. This is coming to Google's phones, of course, but that's not all.
The Google Photos app aims to get smarter about suggesting who you might want to share photos with.
The Assistant will also be a lot more useful on your phone, giving you a quick snapshot of your day, with suggestions based on the time of day, location and recent interactions with it.
"It's important to us that users and businesses have a good experience with this service, and transparency is a key part of that", Google engineers Yaniv Leviathan and Yossi Matias, who helped design the new technology, wrote in a Tuesday blog post.
Accessing the app drawer-"all apps", as I think of it-works as before, too, but you must now make a full swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access this list. This will offer developers on-device APIs for text recognition, face detection, image labeling and more.
Google promoted its advances in artificial intelligence by showing how machines can make phone calls just like humans-and even sound like John Legend. "In most cases, these restrictions should not introduce new issues for existing apps, but we recommend removing these requests from your apps". One of the best examples of this is the new Smart Compose feature in Gmail, said Pichai.
Users can set the time limit they want to each app, which is probably the best and most direct way to manage how much time people spend on their phones.
Do not disturb is going to become more powerful with a new gesture. That means if you've got the media app in the main screen, the secondary portion of the display can still show something like navigation information. The said feature will be made available within the Photos app sometime this week. Through Android Jetpack, a set of app-building tools, developers can reach users across 95% of Android devices. "This is one way to hijack people's minds and form a habit".
