 In Android P taking screenshots is no pain task. Unlike earlier versions where you had to press volume down + power button combination (or maybe some more difficult button combination) to take a screenshot and every time you ended locking your phone or increasing the volume, in Android P you will find the screenshot option in the power menu itself. So save all the trouble.

  •  Increased App Security

After the major security breach by Facebook, all big internet companies are laying more and more focus on the security of their users. Like that, with Android P, Google is too taking a big step in this direction. Unlike now, apps whom you give permission to access your device's camera and mic, continue to access it even after you close the application, as they continue to run in the background. The new Android P will block all apps running in the background to access camera and mic. Indeed a good move Google.

  • Alert for Call Recordings
Have you ever been recorded by your friends or colleague without your consent? Well if yes, it won't happen with the Android P, as it will notify the parties that the call is being recorded. It will play a beep tone after every 15 seconds to alert the other party.

  • Adaptive Battery Life

Adaptive Battery Life

Android P is being designed to give you more consistent battery experience. Google has embedded an on-device machine learning in Android P, that will figure out which all apps you will use in the next few hours and which you won't use until later in the day. This will not only give the battery a promising boost but will also optimize it for better use. Google has partnered with Deep Mind to refine its algorithms in Deep Learning.

  • Adaptive Brightness

According to Google, current auto-brightness settings aren't good enough and that is the reason why its giving phone makers a more power efficient way to calibrate phone screen settings based on the environment and learned behavior.

  • App Actions

App Actions

With Android P, Google is inserting more prediction tools into its app drawer. Earlier Android versions had a top row of predicted apps, normally based on your usage history, which came handy at times. But Android P, Google is going a step further with this and is going to read the mind of users (sounds scary?). App Actions will predict what you will do next based and learned from your everyday routine, and these shortcuts sit in a row right underneath the predicted app icons.

  • Screen Rotation and Volume Slider fixed
Android P Features
Volume Slider

Now you would be able to control the screen rotation manually, instead of relying on your phone sensor to rotate the screen (which almost every time does it when it actually is not required). Whenever you will rotate your smartphone, a pop-up icon will appear on which if you will tap, the screen will be rotated.

The volume slider is moving again and this time it's off to the right side near the volume rocker. Pressing the volume keys will adjust the media volume on the device, instead of ringer volume, that was a thing in the previous versions of OS. The ringer can be turned on and off through a software toggle button.

  • Dashboard

Dashboard breaks down phone usage data to show how you spend time on your device. It shows metrics like the total number of hours spent on the phone each day, total number of notification you have received and number of times you unlocked your phone. The dashboard will help the users to minimize the use of their smartphones and apply a self-imposed threshold to their daily routine.

  • Lockdown Mode

LockDown

It's another important addition to the security of the device. Enter Lockdown feature can be found in the power menu of the device. This feature will disable or lock down the fingerprint functionality in the device in case an assailant tries to get on your phone.


So far, These were all the features and upgrades that are worked upon by Google for its Android P OS. Though the OS is still in its development stage and will undergo numerous changes and tweaks. But everything gets boiled down to the fact that Android P will be all about these features and some more that are still about to come.
