Android P's Public Beta Available Now

Google has announced at there I/O keynote that they are releasing a public Android P beta for 11 phones, including its own Pixel phones, the Essential Phone, Sony's Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi's Mi Mix 2S and the upcoming OnePlus 6. You won't want to install this beta if you need a completely reliable phone, but Android P's features may be worth trying if you're willing to experiment. Android P brings a dash of AI to power management and brightness to proactively shut down little-used apps and ramp up the brightness only when you need it. The predictive app section in the notification shade now includes new buttons that predict what you'd like to do, such as messaging a friend.  Android P is also tackling digital overload with an app usage dashboard, a less visually distracting Do Not Disturb mode, a Shush option to quickly silence alerts and a Wind Down mode that reminds you to get ready for bed.
