Google isn't releasing the new version into its public Android beta channel but it giving give app developers and Android enthusiasts a chance to try it out.

For now, Google is gradually rolling out Lens to Android users, while people with iOS devices will have to wait a little longer. The last models we used were the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. The company today released the first developer preview of Android P.

Both devices still have a large development community and we expect developers to put together stable Android P ROMs for both devices. The first developer preview of Android P introduces a couple of new features, but there isn't a lot to get excited about just yet. I personally think that anything involving "Pie" is not sweet enough, not to mention that pies do not come in many colors. Anyone can download it, but Android P is not yet intended for consumer use. If you have any better ideas, please drop a comment and let us know!

That said, it's likely that die-hard Android enthusiasts will find ways to port Android P to the Nexus 5X and Nexus P later down the road.

As is tradition already, Google has released a very alpha version of Android P very close to "Pi Day" (3/14).

As for what's included in this update, Google has included quite a few new goodies.

On the other hand, Google will support the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL for a minimum of three years of platform updates, meaning that they should even get Android R in 2020.

Android P's improved security features, including encrypting data traffic and enhanced biometrics, are poised to help establish Android as an enterprise-ready OS, as noted by TechRepublic's Conner Forrest. You can head over to the Source link at the end of the article for more detailed information. Now, Google has four separate system images on its site for all four devices so you will need to cross-check before go ahead with the download.

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.
