Something I forgot to add in the video that some may find useful. Multi-window. Now that the recent apps button is gone, how do you open multi-window? If you watch the video, on the overview screen, you can see icons at the top of the cards. Long press the icon and it gives you the option to open split screen. Sorry about that!

For those who are debating downloading, it's been really stable so far (granted, I've only been using it for a day).

Im not gonna lie bois... Android Oreo looks better then Android P (Peppermint?) Android P is to Facebook-ish... Blah 🙈🙉🙊

Had the P beta running on my Pixel 2 XL for a week now. Not a fan of the new overview page as I much preferred swiping up and down through open apps and being able to swipe left or right to close apps. The new method seems a bit clunky. I really don't like the swipe up from home button gesture either. Much prefer one swipe upwards to open the app drawer and having a separate button for overview. The new notifications are fantastic. Battery life seems to be even better than before (not that it was an issue as my Pixel 2 XL battery life is incredible) The new volume control is a much needed addition especially having the media volume the default!

Android P....Play Toy? Cause that's what the UI looks like. Going too far backwards in design aesthetics for my taste. This will definitely be a time to actually want Samsung etc. to create a better looking UI.

They ruined the notification dropdown look, looks like samsung or lg now. I'm glad I still have my nexus 5x with 8.1.0

Damn shame that we're talking about the newest Android version while most Android phones still haven't received Oreo. Just wow....
Secular Guy (1 month ago)
I think this version was designed by an iPhone user.
Secular Guy (1 month ago)
Whoever designed this version should be fired, and recommended to Apple. It's terrible-y IOS like.
Secular Guy (1 month ago)
There's a reason some of us don't like or use IOS. What is the point of using Android when it's becoming so much like crappy IOS?

KL Nguyen (1 month ago)
I know this is a Beta version of Android P, but what I disappoint a lot is that why does Google call one of the features of Android P "gesture" while the back button and the navbar are still here and unhideable??? Why don't Google gesturize the "back button"??? If they are trying to copy gestures from iPhone X (or Palm, Blackberry Playbook OS, and Meego on Nokia N9), they should copy it completely. HOW DISAPPOINTING!!!!

This just show how much WebOS was ahead of its time. I loved WebOs but they had to put that into a horrible "tiny little case", with a plastic screen. Made it unusable.
Robi Hill (1 month ago)
Thank you for the better DND. Hope they keep the vertical recent apps as an option. I Don't care for the horizontal scrolling and the lack of recent apps button
K Kun (1 month ago)
I felt the you-tube video somehow was super long on the 'overview' functionality than other Android P features. example: Maps recommendation, Google lens and Dashboard.
psydex (1 month ago)
The nav is still there and taking the same space as the regular one. What's the point of the iOS-ish nav then?

Trying to impress iOS fanboys while fooling around with Android fanboys haah, GOOGLE - by using a miracle word you say as Android "P"? Notifications from EMUI & horizontal recents and swipe up for recents form iOS! Not just a copy of iOS, in fact, along, a copy of EMUI that itself is also a copy of iOS? Come on! May be Andy Rubin should stop running behind others to install his own development on his own "Essential" phone and develop something new for Android fanboys, that will showcase another Miracle!

I'm still running nougat. I appreciate being able to double tap the recents key to switch apps. Is that gone now? :(
Gary Fleschner (1 month ago)
Running the beta on my Pixel 2 XL and really enjoying the experience. I have had some glitches, but nothing earth shattering. Just some apps closing or misbehaving. Seems pretty intuitive, and looking forward to future betas.
It'll be cooler if @TheJoeHindy makes it as one of the voices of Google Assistant. :)

I might be alone on this one, but is anyone else _really_ frustrated with the changes to Android's OS both in terms of interface and feature-set? I know I have these last 3 years (might be coming up to 4 actually). It's not even the homogenisation with iOS that's doing it either; more than anything I feel as if the team no longer has a clear vision of what they want Android to be or how they want us to interact with it, so they just keep making drastic design overhauls with each major release to see what sticks 😑.

Unless you have pixel or pixel 2 can't really say if you like it only phones it's available for right now

There's another useful feature called lockdown which can be enabled in the Security setting. It essentially locks the screen and disables finger print to unlock. It require you to enter your password to then unlock similart to what happens on a reboot.

So we really need the Google search bar anymore !!?? It just takes up space now. We have Google assistant which gives us what we need it's just seems redundant. ??

Really not fan of Google UIs in general though. Either way, beta or not, it needs dark theme option in general. Everything needs to have that.

Can I not switch internet connections and Bluetooth connections through the scroll down menu anymore? I can't find to do it :(
Jonathan Weiss (1 month ago)
For those who don't know, the home screen shouldn't have a back button. It's because the reviewer was using a launcher for some of the review. It's a contextual back button, so it detects when you are in an app, and displays it. Since Android detects you are technically *in an app" when you're using a launcher, that's why it displays. Google will hopefully fix this so that people don't have to deal with a broken home screen nav bar when they're on their home screen
the vertical recents screen is better
Chris Romberg (1 month ago)

don't think I like a single one of the UI changes. I especially don't like the idea of suggested actions showing up in the app drawer. If I want to call someone, I'm not going to do it because it's suggested to me.

Now i just wanna buy nokia 6(2018) to get all these awesome features and possibly more if it gets android Q

I hate recommended apps, period... I don't give a damn if the algorithm is super good at recommending apps for me, I am not going to use anything which I myself don't chose to put there...
Øswald (1 month ago)
I also hate the damn recommendations in the settings... I turn on something, sometime later I return to the settings app and it wants to disable it, I hate it... If I turned it on by myself or if I set it to a schedule, I ain't gonna want to turn it off... damn google, ruining android...

Wheres the "Close All" button for the recent apps at?
En Force (1 month ago)
Nope nope. Don't even start me on that horizontal pile of death.That is why I don't like Huawei or Xiaomis skin. It is iOS like. And 1st is I don't want to be seen with something that is iOS copy 2nd it is unpractical. So No.
4evadunkley (1 month ago)
En Force you can go back to the old 3 button style if you want. There is an option in the settings. Although, this will probably be the standard next year or the year after. Also, technically palm os was the first to have this gesture based navigation. Lastly, iOS and Android are getting closer and closer together so you might as well just accept it... Or not, you can always root and do whatever you want :)

Karmendra Negi (1 month ago)
I don't understand why Google is fooling people. I mean all these nonsense android os coming. I mean look at android Oreo now at android marshmallow. Anyone can install some small 3d party apps and get same features and design. I mean is Google doing this for profit or for customer. Look at Microsoft they gave XP then vista many apps designs functionality given. Then windows 8 again more functions. Now with no longer is only windows 10 last os gives updates and gives more functions. Google should stop making android os every 3-4 years instead they should do the same thing like Microsoft and start giving updates to give more functions and apps. By this way we don't have to become mad for new android and everyone can get same os and updates. But then how will Google profit ever thought of it?
Anushka Chauhan (1 month ago)
Google really screwed UI of real Android now they just started copying iOS creating it's cheap copy and now even MIUI UI. .....man.... The worst version of Android Im not gonna upgrade to it coz it's not what I expected and passionate about ... I'm really disappointed now 😑😑😒 Google just released Android P(piece of shit)...
Jose Francisco (1 month ago)
Anushka Chauhan Ya.. Looking at Android P... I really don't like it. I like the adaptive battery option, but the overall UI design is more about function out of the design, not the Android trademark design. Same thing with that notch trend lol. Its as if they want to start a new trend than revolutionizing the OS.
