This is the Android P Developer Preview 1 Easter egg

This is the Android P Developer Preview 1 Easter egg

Google is adamant that this release is exclusively for developers at this point, so we don't suggest that you try downloading images right this instant to install on your personal Android device.

Last year, Google introduced a new neural networks API in Android 8.1 Oreo that provided developers with hardware-backed tools for machine learning. Android P also continues Android's steady improvements for the Autofill Framework and power efficiency (via Doze, App Standby and Background Limits). There are factory images for the Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2, and Google Pixel 2 XL, and you can sideload them right now.

However, this hidden feature is a simple one as it shows the letter "P" which changes colors when you tap the back button. Google says that pairing this new API with dual front or rear cameras will allow you to enable some trick effects like seamless zoom and stereo vision.

Instead, Arsenal betrayed the defensive frailties that have been a feature of their campaign and allowed Brighton to take control. Granit Xhaka fed the ball into Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who cleverly flicked the ball home with the outside of his boot.

As expected, Android P brings support for the notch, something that Apple popularized with the iPhone X and is now being widely embraced by Android OEMs. With Wi-Fi RTT, your phone can use nearby Wi-Fi hotspots to find your position when you're indoors.

Google released the first developer preview of Android P today, and obviously, people are starting to tear the update to shreds to figure out all its secrets and port features to other versions of Android because fragmentation.

Google hasn't said when Android P will be released to the public or what dessert it might choose to represent the "P" release.
