Android P will turn your phone into a Bluetooth powered keyboard or mouse?

Android P will allow you to use your phone as a Bluetooth mouse or keyboard

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. Android P will be supporting HDR VP9 Video, HEIF image compression, and newly-refactored media APIs, the post said. As of today, developers can download the first version of Android P to last year's Pixel and Pixel XL as well as the newer Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. As some screenshots show, messaging apps can include multiple lines from a conversation along with Google's smart replies in the notification shade, making responses quicker while also including more conversational context. Android P also adds support for multi-camera API which will allow users to access streams simultaneously from two or more physical cameras on the device. Once your phone knows the distance between three or more access points, Google says your position can be determined with an accuracy of one to two meters. As long as you own a Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, or Pixel 2 XL, Google already has system images available for download. JobScheduler then manages work according to the network status.

Autofill improvements: New APIs that allow password managers to improve the Autofill user experience, such as better dataset filtering, input sanitization, and compatibility mode. Developers and Android enthusiasts can now get it up and running on select devices. A hardware abstraction layer (HAL) provides the underlying API for enumerating a variety of Secure Elements (eSE, UICC, and others). This adds to JobScheduler's ability to manage scheduled tasks and more on Doze, App Standby, and Background Limits. With Android P, developers will be able to access each stream separately or fuse them depending on what they are trying to achieve.

More details and information will be forthcoming during the development process. Google is also changing the defaults for Network Security Configuration to block all cleartext traffic. Cameras used by your app are disconnected and will generate an error if the app tries to use them. "To start, make sure you have the latest version of the "Google Photos" app for Android", the company wrote on Twitter late on Tuesday.
