Google Lens Rolling Out to Every Android Phone, iOS Coming Soon

  • Google Pixel 2XL

Before we get to a big overview video and after you've read through the list of changes that Google shared, we thought we'd give you a bonus to get started yourself. Unlike previous year, there is no emulator for testing Android Wear on Android P.

Google has announced there will be five Android P Developer Previews ahead of a final release in "Q3". You can also call getSampledSize () to get the image dimensions at a specific sample rate, then scale to those dimensions.

We're still taking in as much of the Android P Developer Preview 1 as we can, so that we can share all of the new bits of information from it. Pixel 2 devices will also have support for Qualcomm's Hexagon HVX driver, giving developers further improvements in performance on those devices.

Other than that, the same rules apply. This one is codenamed "P", and your guess is as good as ours as to what dessert-themed name the final version of the software will receive. Google is adding in new APIs to help developers figure out how best to accommodate cutouts with the APIs managing the status bar area around the cutout. There's also a Developer Option to simulate a notch.

Trump links tariffs to 'fair' NAFTA deal
Nor have past protectionist measures saved the steel industry, as Trump says his tariffs would. The three countries are now in negotiations regarding the North American Free Trade Agreement.

The first developer preview for Google's Android P update arrived on Wednesday, allowing people to prepare their apps for the 2018 update. We're excited to add HEIF (heic) image encoding to the platform. It can even enable a "fused camera stream" that auto-switches between two or more cameras. By doing this, users can maintain contact with others without having to jump out of another app they may be using. It offers several advantages over BitmapFactory, including support for exact scaling, single-step decoding to hardware memory, support for post-processing in decode, and decoding of animated images.

Message notifications have been improved, allowing for great visibility and interactions. Additionally, messaging apps can now show images in notifications, save replies as drafts when the notification is closed, and use suggested replies like the full messaging app.

Jobs can now declare their estimated data size, signal prefetching, and specify detailed network requirements-carriers can report networks as being congested or unmetered. Apps can take advantage of the space, and there will be APIs to manage content. Knowing the distance to three or more APs lets you calculate the device position with an accuracy of 1 to 2 meters.

At the time, Google's neural network API supported on-device model creation, compilation, and execution, meaning you could not only build a model as required on the device, but you could also run it. Those without a Pixel device can use the Android emulator to test their Android apps.
