Google Lens now live on all Android phones through Photos

Google has announced that the next major version of its mobile operating system, Android P, is available for developers to try.

Google has built support for this notch on the screen in Android P so developers can test how their applications work in panels of this type. This one is codenamed "P", and your guess is as good as ours as to what dessert-themed name the final version of the software will receive. "You can check whether the current device has a cutout by calling getDisplayCutout (), and then determine the location and shape of the cutout area using DisplayCutout", writes Dave Burke, Google VP of Engineering. The support appears to be aimed at the Android smartphones coming with Apple iPhone X-inspired notch displays.

The first preview of Android P also comes with some other important new additions.

Google's Android P is expected to bring some great upgrades to the OS, but older hardware such as the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and the Pixel C tablet won't get a taste of it.

With the multi-camera API, an Android P device can get streams from multiple physical cameras simultaneously. Developers will have to make sure that everything looks neat even with a notch when creating their apps. Now you will be able to see messages in the context of a conversation, send AI-powered smart replies, and view attached images right from the notification panel, as illustrated in the Android P preview. The first step for the same has now been laid, with Google deciding to roll out Lens for the non-Pixel devices. Developers who do not have a Pixel device can rely on the Android Emulator and explore Android P's new features. Google said more features, tools, and capabilities will be added later in the developer preview, too. This looks like a nice starting point, though, with Google rolling out several smaller changes that ought to help improve the Android user experience.

Well, the Android P is out, as you may already know.

Save replies as drafts: Your app can retrieve the EXTRA_REMOTE_INPUT_DRAFT sent by the system when a user inadvertently closes a messaging notification. You can download and manually flash the compatible build for your device using this link.

It's not unexpected unless you haven't been keeping tabs on Google's devices.
