Google has released Android P Beta 4/Developer Preview 5, and Android users couldn’t be more excited.
Android P Beta 4 is now available for Pixel/Pixel XL and Pixel 2/Pixel 2XL. The new announcement from Android Developers blog marks the end of Android P betas’ and begins the anticipation of Android P final version which releases “later this summer.”
As of now, there aren’t any major changes in the new Android P build. According to Android VP Dave Burke; the last build includes “final system behaviors.” In other words, whatever you would see in the Developer Preview 5 (DP5) will most probably remain in the Android P final version.
Still, we discovered a few minute changes from the last DP4. For instance, microphone shortcut has been removed from the Pixel search bar. And there is a new auto rotate icon in the notification shade.
Earlier this month, we saw the release of Android DP4 which also fixed a few bugs and improved Gesture Navigation, apparently the most notable feature of Android P. We also have compiled a massive list of Android P top features.
