[MUSIC] Android P is here as a developer preview, and here's a sneak peak of what to expect from the new operating system. The first thing you'll notice is rounded corners on the interface and a lot more color in the settings menu on the Google pixel. But in this preview, you can expand the Wi-Fi or bluetooth settings from the notification shade like you can in Oreo Just press the volume rocker and tap the media icon to see a list of all your connected devices on bluetooth or casting. Taking screenshots is now as simple as pressing and holding the power button. You'll see an option to snap the screen, and once you've got your screenshot, edit it using the command from the notification shade. Choose the markup option and add all the scribbles you like.

Now when you turn the screen back to portrait, it will stick. You can also lock down the phone itself to disable the fingerprint scanner or trusted voice unlock and just use a PIN or pattern. Go to settings, security & location, then tap lock screen Screen preferences then toggle the show lockdown option. Now press and hold the power button to enable lockdown mode. If you're using a Pixel, you'll now see the battery percentage at the bottom of the ambient display. This is already on some Samsung, LG, and Motorola phones.

Scroll down to the drawing section under Developer Options. Tap simulate a display with a cut out, then choose a size. A lot of Android P's new features are under the hood, like security tweaks, and the autofill feature from Oreo where you can use password managers to login To apps will soon work in browsers as well. Other features like smart replies from the notifications shade are coming in future updates. [MUSIC]
