Google's Chrome OS to Get Linux App Support

Google I/O 2018: How to watch and what to expect

At its developers conference this year, Google unveiled the much-anticipated mobile operating system, Android P, which will power the Pixel devices and other smartphones. If folks don't activate any of the "digital wellbeing" functions, then the new version of Android P isn't going to really do anything.

For the first time, Android P will stop apps gathering information on users such as location, network data and access to cameras and microphones whenever the app is not in use or is in the background.

Keep in mind that, unlike Apple, Google doesn't really force its user experience on Android phone makers.

OK, Google just announced the new features to come in Android P and there's quite a bit to be excited about! "I'll make you an appointment and update you soon". A new Dashboard shows you how the user is spending time on the device, including time spent in apps, how many times the phone is unlocked and how many notifications received. Apart from Android P, several intersting changes will reflect through Google Apps and services as well. So, this is a change for the Pixel as well as non-Google devices. You would think that OEMs and tech companies would either try to ignore that or have counter-arguments about it. Similar to iPhone X swiping right will lead you to the recent apps. You can also flick the same button quickly to jump straight to the last app you were using.

Russian Federation and Iran will continue 'close coordination' on nuclear deal
Israel and Russian Federation also set up a mechanism in order to avoid direct conflict over their competing interests in Syria . Repeated airstrikes attributed to Israel have killed Iranian fighters and prompted threats of reprisal from Tehran.

The app drawer, as previously, has a search bar in it so that you can search for any of your apps by name, rather than having to go hunting for them manually. This device will have all the capabilities of the Google Home smart speakers, but will also be able to play YouTube videos, make video calls, check the weather, and do a variety of other actions, all powered by the more powerful Google Assistant AI.

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.

"In collaboration with Google, we are proud to offer OnePlus 6 users an early glimpse at the future of Android", says OnePlus.

It would also teach children to use polite language when interacting with the Google Assistant's "Pretty Please feature".
