If you have an Android device, the Nearby phone notification will let you setup your updated Android TV.

Before you give it a try, a word of caution: You probably don't want to install this update on your primary device.

Similar to Android Oreo, to get to your app drawer, you long swipe from the bottom of the screen, or just swipe upwards from the recent apps view to get to your apps. The beta version of Android P is now available on few devices that are Sony Xperia XZ2, Nokia 7 Plus, Vivo X21, Essential PH-1, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Google Pixel, Oppo R15 Pro, and OnePlus 6.

I really like the new gestures.

Uber and the US Army team up to make flying cars
Uber said it will share its plans for a ridesharing network of flying cars with NASA , which will conduct simulations. Uber itself will not manufacture the vehicles, working instead with aviation firms to produce the vehicles needed.


Google follows Gmail revamp with Drive redesign
That said, there's no way you could enable the new design like on the Gmail as it's a complete server-side change. Google also listed wide-range changes included in the redesigned Google Drive for the web interface.


Go Home: There's no more home button (virtual or otherwise) in Android P, but the replacement is pretty straightforward. However, the Android crowd won't need as much time as iPhone X users to learn the new moves. iPhone user had to put up with the iPhone X ditching a major component of the flagship smartphone - the Home button. Google Lens gets smarter and will be available within the camera app for supported devices. Adaptive Battery will allow Android P to prioritize battery power for the apps and services you use the most.

Maps will now be able to recommend you places to visit and restaurants to eat in based on your individual preferences. Besides that, Google also announced some new features in its most used products - Google Photos, Gmail, News and more. For instance, Google is making inroads with bringing a more conversational aspect to Assistant so things feel much more natural than they already do. Actions show up throughout Android in places like the Launcher, Smart Text Selection, the Play Store, the Google Search app and the Assistant.

So, any users stuck with Oreo or Nougat on their current devices will have to either buy the cable or upgrade to Android P.

OK, Google just announced the new features to come in Android P and there's quite a bit to be excited about! All you have to do is hit tab to keep auto-completing. Google's building on that with a new "Wind Down" function that starts by eliminating blue light and then, as your pre-set bedtime approaches, starts to turn the screen to grayscale, which will make using apps like Instagram less tempting.
