Besides the above here find brief about the seven important phone features that you will have hands on experience with Android P

1. Adaptive battery life

Android P is being designed to give you a more consistent battery experience by using on-device machine learning to figure out which apps you’ll use in the next few hours and which you won’t use until later, if at all today. According to Google’s VP of Engineering for Android Dave Burke there will be 30% reeducation in CPU app wake-ups for apps, adaptive battery is producing promising results. He says Google partnered with Deep Mind to refine its deep learning algorithms and it’s having a big effect on Android battery life.

2. Adaptive Brightness

Adaptive Brightness

According to Google as the current auto-brightness settings aren’t good enough, that’s why it’s giving phone makers a more power efficient way to calibrate phone screen brightness based on both the environment and learned behavior. Google calls this adaptive brightness and claims that current around 50% of users testing out this Android P feature have stopped manually adjusting the brightness thanks to the adaptive brightness settings. It will thus dim the screen when it predicts you won’t need it lit up so much.

3. App actions

App Actions

Google is inserting more prediction tools into its app drawer. Previously, you’d see a top row of predicted apps, normally based on your usage history which was helpful. Android P goes a step further with app actions that predict what you’ll do next, and these shortcuts sit in a row right underneath the predicted app icons. This boils down to shortcuts for calls, or a run routine based on the fact that you just plugged in headphones and run every day at this time with an app like Strava So is Android P reading your mind.

4. App slices

App slices

Google is issuing an API to developers to create more shortcuts around its operating system interface.  The best example at Google IO was with the ride-hailing app, Lyft. Searching for ‘Lyft’ will provide the app as an answer, but also shortcuts to your top destinations, like work and home, each with a price already listed. It’s saving you from having to go into the app menus in order to select these options.

App slices via the search bar can extend to Google Photos, too. In your smartphone now  you’ll see photos from a vacation and checking into a hotel when you look up your hotel name easily instead of going through the clunky third-party app, you may be able to just select ‘check in’. Thus Slices can serve valuable information from installed apps at a glance without you actually needing to open said app. Just think of how many possibilities this feature opens.

5. New system navigation

System navigation interface in Android P

Android P will have a new system navigation interface in order to make multi-tasking easier to understand, with a single clean home button. It’s very much an iPhone X horizontal bar to replace the typical home and recent buttons. This is part of Google’s plan to make the UI simpler and adapt to the all-screen phone designs out there.

You’ll be able to swipe up from the bottom anywhere in the operating system to see recent open apps as well as five predicted app at the bottom of the screen to save you time. Swiping up a second time and you’ll see your app drawer. With this one-two swipe gesture, Google has essentially combined the all-apps and overview spaces gesture into one.

You can do one better than Apple’s iPhone interface. Android P will let you scroll through all of your apps very quickly by sliding right and left with the horizontal bar at the bottom. It’s like a video you’re scrubbing through, by for app selection.

6. Volume slider and screen rotation fixed

Volume slider feature in Android P

The volume slider is moving again, you will find it off to the right side near the volume rocker. Pressing the volume keys will now adjust the media volume instead of controlling the ringer volume. The ringer can be turned on and off through a software toggle button when you adjust the volume. This makes a lot more sense. You’ll also be able to manually control screen orientation. This will be done via a pop-up icon that appears when you rotate the screen. You won’t have to rely on the phone to rotate the screen for you.

7. Time dashboard and Shush

Android P Dashboard

Now you have someone to track you down if you use your cell phone too much. Like a Fitbit tracker gauges for activity and informs to motivate you, Google’s Android P update includes a dashboard to monitor how long you’ve been using your phone and specific apps. It’s supposed to aid you in understanding what you’re spending too much time on so that you can adjust your behavior.

It even comes with an app timer and to send you notifications when you cross a self-imposed threshold, and a new Shush feature is launching as a Do Not Disturb shortcut when you turn your phone over on its front face. In addition to silencing alarms, it won’t even display visual notifications. Think of Google as eliminating both audible and visual noise from your life when these modes are enabled.

Even if you feel the urge to open your phone in the middle of the night Android P will help you fight that urge with another new feature called Wind Down. First, you tell the Google Assistant when it is you hope to to go to sleep. Then, when the time comes, the phone will not only kick into a Do Not Disturb state, but will simultaneously transform the display from color to grayscale.

Entering this mode is supposed to be far less stimulating on the brain, and maybe, just maybe, encourage you to set the device down until morning when full color is restored.

Besides these awesome features there are many more which you will surely like on your Android cell phone with Android P.
