The Android team has prioritized function and visibility for the notifications in their new MessagingStyle notification, which will allow users to reply to messages inside the notifications themselves.

While Android 8.1 Oreo and even the original Android 8.0 release were mainly small maintenance releases, P is a lot more. Google also says they will block access to sensors, mics and cameras when they are idle. That being said if you're enrolled in the beta program for this type of software then Google will likely send out emails and alerts eventually to let users know that the preview build is available for download and installation through an OTA method. Google also urges all the existing app developers to make changes reflecting the new guidelines. Finally, the API also opens the door for applications to use logical or fused camera streams. Google Lens, which made its debut in Google's flagship smartphone Pixel 2 a year ago is a photo analyzing app powered by AI that resides in Google Photos. You'll like the new look of notifications, and all the smart controls and in-line replies or images.

Further, Android P now has built-in support for HDR VP9 Profile 2 which will allow users with HDR-compatible devices to enjoy HDR-enabled content in apps like YouTube, Google Play Movies, Netflix, etc.
