Google has officially announced the latest addition to the long list of most successful Android OS. The 9th version is called Android Pie or Android P. It is currently available for the Google's own Pixel devices. While the people who have registered themselves for the Beta version will be provided with an update later this year. In this article, we will look at the top 5 features of the latest Android Operating system and how it has improved over its predecessors.
The Notch has its fair share of lovers who are absolutely fine with a narrow cut out, while there are many who hate it to the core. Well, the Android P developers seem to have listened to everyone, and thus provides support for Notch. If your phone has a notch and you love it, that's well and good, but if you do not like it, now you can hide it from the OS itself.
Smart Reply options like Gmail:
Just like Gmail where you have the option of smart reply depending on the keywords in the message has been introduced in the latest OS. Now you will be prompted with no reply options which you can use instead of typing the whole message yourself.
View images From the Notification toggle:
Now you do not have to open the messages to see the attachment like the attached images. You can directly view the images from the notification toggle itself. Earlier one has to open the messages to see the attached files not anymore.
Apple Like Text Zooming options:
iOS devices have this feature where you can zoom into a text just like you can do it with images, i.e pinch in to zoom. Now you can make use of this feature on your Android P device as well. This will come in handy for the fine prints.
Introduction of new wifi protocol:
Android P will bring along the support for the IEEE 802.11mc Wi-Fi protocol, which is also known as Wi-Fi 33 Round-Trip-Time (RTT). This is supposed to let developers take advantage of indoor positioning in apps. For end users, this means they may be able to see indoor maps right from inside the apps.
