Google Lens now available to all Android smartphones with Google Photos app

Google is adamant that this release is exclusively for developers at this point, so we don't suggest that you try downloading images right this instant to install on your personal Android device.

Among the improvements, one that was probably added a bit later in the process was support for a screen cutout in the display. As we can see in the image below, there will be all different kinds of cutaways - Narrow, Tall, and Wide. There's even a developer option that simulates a cutout on any device.

Google is asking developers to make their app compatible with Android P so that their users can expect a seamless transition when they upgrade. What's the official Easter egg in Android P and how do I access it?

Multiple cameras is becoming more and more common these days, so Google added a new multi-camera API to Android P - it lets developer access "multiple streams" from two (or more) camera lenses.

The preview is very much a developer preview only with Dave Burke, VP of Engineering for Android calling it "an early baseline build for developers only", so prepare to flash this to a test device only. "The result is typically accurate within 1 to 2 meters". Apart from that, most of the flagship smartphones have now received the Android 8.0 Oreo update as well.

The app will come with support for other Google services such as Google Maps and more.

New broadcast intent types: The Android system now sends broadcast intents when the blocking state of notification channels and channel groups' changes. For these four devices, you'll need to manually sideload the update, and we've got a handy tutorial to help you do just that. A key feature of this release includes the ability to create multiple variations in software for the same hardware product while being able to manage each build separately.

Those are the big things.

How does Google Lens work?

ImageDecoder for bitmaps and drawables - this gives developers easier way to decode images to bitmaps or drawables. You will be able to use Smart Replies, stickers and images directly from within a notification when responding.

Data cost sensitivity in JobScheduler: JobScheduler now handles network-related jobs better for the user, coordinating with network status signals provided separately by carriers. For Pixel owners, Lens is also available within Google Assistant as well, but this feature will not be coming to other Android phones just yet.
