Share

Google recently released the Android P Beta and now it is available as a beta update on a bunch of devices including the Google's Pixel smartphones. You'll see how long you've used your phone in a day and which apps you've used most.

Android's newly unveiled Dashboard app breaks down all the dirty details of your bad phone habits. Some of the features that have debuted with the Android P public beta include Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness, App Timer, Swipe Up, Slices, and more.

Keep in mind that, unlike Apple, Google doesn't really force its user experience on Android phone makers. The Android TV team told Android Police that it is working with partners to develop solutions that will provide a more consistent update solution for consumers in the future.

OK, Google just announced the new features to come in Android P and there's quite a bit to be excited about! Android P's Wind Down feature will automatically switch the display to greyscale and so that it doesn't hurt your eyes and so that you can put your phone down quickly to get a sound sleep. Further, by pointing out the camera to a home decor item, it shows you the similar items including the user reviews.

To really get the most out of the system, you'll have to use voice commands.

If you're struggling with getting a grasp on Android P, there's no need to run back to an older version of Google's software. Unlike the previous iterations, this one will be available for both the Pixel and select non-Pixel devices as well.

Users can then tap for more information about the app, or completely stop it from running in the background. Also, users can just flip their phone to put it in DND and this feature has been aptly called "Shush". The Google Assistant feature uses lifelike audio to, for example, book a haircut.
