Everybody is curious to find out what will be the exact name of Google’s new Android Operating System. So far known as Android P, the OS is already starting to raise question marks among technology fans. What’s P coming from? Popsicle, Pop-Tart, Pancake, Peppermint? As delicious as they might sound, sweets won’t give a name to Google’s new operating system. As we are about to find out, P comes from the mathematical term Pi. The awaited OS is expected to be released in March. Now that the name question and releasing date have been cleared, let’s see what it brings new.
What to expect
The new OS is expected to be safer and blocks unverified documents options. Nothing is taken as a sure fact, but so far Google has hinted that, along with the name drop, Android P may block unverified and undocumented Hidden Apis from being downloaded. In a short mention about the new operating system XDA revealed that, in the future, when using it, hidden APIs would be blocked.
How it would look like
Besides the general known information, we have no idea what Android P is going to look like. Android fans hope that its’ visual features and overall aspect will remain the same, since they have gotten used to it.
As every user knows, with every new Android release, some features are left behind. Some phones get the updates as soon as they’re released, others have to wait months. We’d like to see that this new Google release will update every feature to all phones at the same time, right out of the gate.
Picture-in-picture for all apps
Picture-in-picture has been shown by Google as a core feature of Android Oreo at the OS’ unveiling. As it turned out, it hardly supported any apps, so it would be a big plus if we could see full, global support for all apps on Android P. After all, this is what we want.
