Android P will have a TON of new features onboard

Android P, aka Android 9.0, is going to arrive in the not-too-distant future. It hasn’t got a name just yet, although we’ve seen what we think is some pretty solid evidence it’ll be called Popsicle.

From March 7, Google made the Developer Preview available and since then a bunch of clever-bods have got down and dirty with the code, investigating what kind of stuff the new version of the platform is capable of. What follows is a big old list of all the new features, tweaks, and changes spotted so far inside Android P.
