Android P Dev Preview One Official & Available To Download

Just keep in mind that this update is intended for developers, so while you may be eager to try out the new features listed above, you might want to hold off on the Android P Developer Preview unless you've got a backup phone.

It's even providing a new Multi-Camera API for devices with dual rear- or front-facing cameras. This stays the same with Android P - Google is making the first preview available exclusively by manual download and flash to emphasize it is for developers only and not intended for daily or consumer use.

More new features and capabilities will be released in subsequent developer previews, and eventually enrollments will be taken through the Android Beta Program.

This should open up new capabilities for apps, so that they can access streams simultaneously from two or more cameras. Jobs can declare their estimated data size, signal prefetching, and specify detailed network requirements. Apple started using it by default with iOS 11, but there are still many apps that don't support it. JobScheduler then manages work according to the network status.
