The smartphone also added a mode for keeping track of that the user did not use it too much.
Google at the annual Google I / O Developer Conference presented a beta version of the Android P operating system, which will be released in late 2018. The company has added a gesture management system, which previously appeared on the iPhone X, which was left without the “Home” button.
In Android P, the system is implemented in a similar way: instead of the usual three buttons, there is one common button, and the “back” button appears only when using applications. Long Svayp up opens the menu with applications, short Svayp down – the list of already running applications. A short press on the Home button opens the main screen, and a long one launches Google Assistant.
Also in Android P added control over the amount of time that the user spends with the smartphone. The panel shows the number of alerts per day, the number of applications used, the average time for each – there you can set a limit, for example, to use social networks or instant messengers.
In addition, you can put the sleep mode on when the screen turns black and white, and turn on the Shush function that launches Do Not Disturb when placing the smartphone face down.
The beta version of Android P became available on May 8, supported by the following devices: Sony Xperia XZ2, Essential Phone, Oppo R15 Pro, Nokia 7 Plus, Xiaomi Mi, Mix 2S, Vivo X21, OnePlus 6, Google Pixel and Google Pixel 2.
