TheHe has been with us for a week, and we’ve had time to trythat arrive with the new version of the system. But beyond the now famous gesture navigation, the new artificial intelligence systems or the redesign of the interface, this version of the operating system brings with it a series of small details of the most interesting , which may go unnoticed at first.
For that reason, to avoid that these functionalities fall into oblivion, or that many of the users that have already installed Android P DP2 in their terminals are lost, we have decided to collect five of the best we’ve found after a week of thoroughly testing the new
The first developer version of Android P introduced, for the first time, a native screenshot editor named Markup . However, many of their options were not functional, and the editor’s capabilities were rather limited.
In this second edition, although Google did not put too much emphasis during the Keynote , the editor is finally fully functional, and allows you to crop, draw, highlight or rotate the captures of screen just do them, quickly and easily.
Do you remember Now On Tap? A few years ago, this feature integrated natively in the system, allowed among other things to select the content that appeared on the screen, and even extract text from the images to be able to copy and paste it into other applications. Later, after the arrival of the Google Assistant, this option disappeared completely.
Now, the same system that one day was introduced in Android through Google Now, returns through the menu of recent applications, also known as Overview . And is that from Android P, making a long press on the text or the images of one of the thumbnails of the applications in this menu, it will be possible to copy the text strings, share the images and even take advantage of the system Smart Text Selection introduced for the first time.
You plug the phone into the charger before leaving home, hoping that the fast charge does its job. You come back half an hour later, and Follow the same battery level that you left it with . Admit it, it has happened to you too.
If so, you’ll be happy to know that with Android P this is a problem of the past, as Google has included a subtle sound that will play – if you activate it – just when you plug the phone into the current . In the video about these lines, courtesy of 9to5Google, it is possible to listen to this sound, whose volume is linked to the volume of notifications. Therefore, in case of having the device in silent mode, it will not be played even if it has been enabled from the settings.
Yesterday we found out that , default, Android P has removed notices from “the application does not respond” . While this change is mainly intended for developers to analyze the reasons why their applications fail through tools such as Firebase, users will also benefit, as they will have the feeling that apps stop working less frequently, not having to interact with a dialog box every time a problem happens.
In Android P, you can find artificial intelligence systems in every corner of the system. One of the most interesting additions is the notification that notifies the user when the device is expected to turn off due to low battery, based on the use habits of each one, that the system itself is collecting over time.
