Now when the Google has exposed its best play card so far, the Android app developers and users will witness the new beau ideal in the IT world.

With the next update, Android P is the ninth version of the Android OS next to Android Oreo, but it has more exciting features for its users.  Initially, the Google Pixel devices are going to access the heart win features of Android P but very soon the other devices would also be able to make their android experience awesome.

Let’s see what are the exciting features of the Android P:

Notification has been improved: With Android P, the Google has improved the notifications display. The android app developers can work on this approach and add multiple windows for various messengers and even can allow users to use the separate notification window for their favourite app. Users will be waived off seeing the notification message at the top of the screen rather they would directly.

Higher Level of Privacy: Android P has brought the newer level of privacy to the Android users while signing up for any third party resources and services through their devices. To fix privacy constraints, the Google has worked on various app features as if camera, microphone and sensors in idle condition would not be able to acknowledge the third party apps. This restricts the third party apps to retrieve the personal data of the users enhancing the privacy of the Android P users in turn.

Another top security feature of Android P is the app will be owned by the fingerprint system allowing users to maintain their privacy. For this, the app developers need to be more articulated in creating a fine fettle UI design for apps.

Sharing is allowed on the social media through this creative markup feature.  

Advanced Do Not Disturb option: In the earlier versions, when users get indulged in a meeting or in any situation where they cannot reply or respond to the call or text they more probably put their phone on the DND option or flight mode. But all these tantrums can be rolled off through Google’s new amendment in Do Not Disturb option. Users can manage and set preferences for the apps they want to use in every situation. They can set whether they want to pick a call or not but opting others app to be idle in DND option.

Animated GIFs and Images: Sending GIfs and animated images are always of fun and the best thing is Google understands its users. Therefore, in its next update, Android P, Google has announced the new feature for the developers and users allowing the developers and designers to create the attractive and funny GIF, animated graphics and WebP for the Android users.
