First Android P beta adds full support for notched displays

Share

Building software to account for this design choice can be a hassle for developers, so Google's Android P will include new "display cutout" tools that can make apps notch-friendly, the company said in a blog post. Factory images for the next major iteration of the Android platform have been released today by the company. This build can be tested using the official Android Emulator or by installing it on the supported Google Pixel devices.

So, yes, you can expect more iPhone X-looking Android devices in the future. Android P will let apps manage how the content is displayed on devices with a notch on the front. Images will also appear in the notifications, and smart replies will also be included, making it fast and easy to send standard responses to messages from the notifications.

With Android P, Google wants to also help developers tap a feature found in more advanced phones: dual cameras. These devices are four of the best Android phones available and they're all much cheaper than they once were. The feature set also includes support for atypical displays, such as the ones with the notch.

Google hasn't specified when Lens will make it to iOS, but it is reportedly "coming soon". However, as the assistant spreads to more devices, user should be access the new feature.

So if you are not using an app it will not be able to listen to your conversations via the microphone or use the camera to see you. If you don't know what that means, then it's a good sign you need to wait until Google opens up its normal Android public beta program later this year.
