Not so long ago we informed you that Google released the first beta of Android P for smartphones from the Pixel family. Today, the giant from Mountain View is releasing another beta of the latest version of the green robot. What did she bring in new?
He goes quickly
The company presented the Android P system at the Google I / O 2018 conference. Until then, of course, this is a beta system, but I can not wait for the new Android to arrive on board my smartphone. Probably it will only take place next year. The conference took place a few weeks ago. Then the giant released the first beta system for several smartphones including Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL . Today, the company released another installment of the Android P version for these models. [Embed] https://youtu.be/UXP_GVZK2eg [/ embed]
There is still a long way to the ideal
Android P developer preview beta 2 is still far from ideal. It is impossible to hide that the system is intended primarily for developers, and installing it on a smartphone can cause a lot of problems. Beta 2 includes the final version of the Android P API and the updated SDK . When installing a new version, keep in mind problems that may affect users. The manufacturer himself warns that the system may hang at any time and the handset may stop responding to commands. What's more, the system can get stuck and the performance of your smartphone will leave a lot to be desired. The battery indicator may also drop at an alarming rate, and the device will run shorter on a single charge. Of course, as it always is with the beta version, we will not use the Google Pay payment because the NFC module is not active . As I remember today, as I participated in the beta test of Android Oreo for the Galaxy S8. The only thing that annoys me very much in beta is that you can not use Google Pay. I do not know about you, but I have been using it all the time since the Mountain View giant introduced the service to Poland. Payment cards have practically ceased to exist for me. The next problem with the beta 2 version is the Bluetooth problem . Listening to music via Bluetooth can be very uncomfortable as there may be frequent picking . It should also be mentioned that it will not be possible to increase the volume or reduce it.
Not only Pixels get this honor
According to the sources soon not only Pixels will be able to install the beta 2. Android P. For the lucky bunch will join such models as Essential Phone, OnePlus 6, Xioami Mi Mix 2s, Sony Xperia XZ2, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21 or Vivo X21 UD. As you can see in the list above, Samsung, LG, Huawei and HTC are still missing. I feel something that owners of Samsung and LG will have to wait until May 2019 to see Android P on their phones. Let me be wrong … For more information on the new beta, please visit on the Google website .Essential Phone users from today can also install the latest beta of Android P on their smartphones. To do this, just visit Essential and follow the instructions. Pixel users must use the Google website. Worth noting is also the fact that both Essential Phone and Google Pixele along with the update receive the June security amendments. Let me know in the comments if there is someone among you who has tested the latest beta of the system and any of your impressions. Source: AndroidDevelopersBlog Essential.com and JeffSpringer
