Android’s VP of Engineering has offered developers a preview of what the next generation of Android will bring.
At a glance, the improvements to display and camera management could have a real impact on socials and integrations.
Better display options
Full screen content is getting easier to manage, with cut-out support and options that will make it possible to truly manage what folks see. Developer options will also facilitate testing, with cut-out simulation of any device.
Also, new video profiles will be added to Android P’s support list, making HDR viewing possible on compatible devices.
Simultaneous multi-camera streaming will add a bunch of functionality to devices with dual-front or dual-back cameras.
There’s also going to be some streamlining of the way the OS and apps handle cameras, which should speed up accessibility, reduce the need for stream interruptions, and improve app-level image stabilisation and special effects.
Also in the P
Where privacy and location services permit, Android P will pinpoint the position of a device to within a metre or so, even indoors.
Other imminent improvements include battery use management, NFC payments, messaging, autofill, as well as new features for app security and user privacy.
How do you see Android P will impact the evolution of the next generation of Android apps?
