How to install the Android P developer preview today

Google's Android security patch for March now available for Nexus and Pixel devices

Mind you, while there aren't any life-changing new features, there are a few tweaks. Developers and Android enthusiasts can now get it up and running on select devices.

If you've got a Google Pixel or Pixel 2 device, you can now give Android P a try. Perhaps the most notable is official support for displays with a notch.

Following the release of the first Android P Developer Preview today, you may have wondered why the only devices you can install it on are the original Pixel and Pixel XL, as well as the Pixel 2 and 2 XL. That's when Google will release it to AOSP, which device makers can then use to customize for their own devices. "A new window layout attribute, layoutInDisplayCutoutMode, lets you tell the system how and when lay out your content relative to the cutout area".

Other notable features coming with Android P include Notification Channel improvements, better autofill, the ability to access streams from two or more physical cameras simultaneously, support for HDR VP9 video and HEIF images, and security improvements.

The red and white combination also looks like a peppermint! 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. That means that if Google is planning a fifth developer preview for late July, we could see the final Android P release sometime in August or September. You will be able to use Smart Replies, stickers and images directly from within a notification when responding.
