Hello Mi-Fans,
I hope you all having an awesome time here on community. Google yesterday released the much awaited Android P preview for the Google Pixel devices. So, lets dig in and see What can we expect from Andoid P and new changes it brings with it.

Support for Notches
Android P now offers supports for Edge to Edge screens with display cutout for Camera and speakers (Notches). The clock is moved to the far left side on the status bar (similar to the way already found in MIUI) , Since the version is optimised for Notches the Notifications now also start from right next to the Clock on the top right. Conidering many devices are now launching with Notches this seems to be a welcome Change.

More Colours in Settings Menu
Google has made some minor changes in the icons of Settings menu and added some Colours like the way already found on MIUI for quite sometime. Settings menu searchbar has also went through a little redesign with rounded corners. Apart from the Addition of colours there have been few changes in animitions while transitioning from one activity to another.

Enhanced Notification
The new Notification UI takes the experience of Quick reply (from 7.0) to whole other level, it allows us to view images in the messages and also can suggest some replies which are the same suggested replies available in your messaging app. This seems to be one of the more useful features of the Preview.

Screenshot button in the Power Menu and Screenshot Editor
Finally Google has provided a native shortcut to capture screenshots. Screenshot button has been in the power menu though still not as convinient as MIUI's 3-finger screenshot. Its better than not having one at all. Also, the power menu now appers appers on the right side and the same can be seen with volume Slider. Android P finally lets you edit screenshot, a feature that has been a part of miui for a while.

Wi-Fi Round Trip Time (RTT)
Android P adds platform support for the IEEE 802.11mc Wi-Fi protocol—also known as Wi-Fi Round-Trip-Time (RTT)—to let you take advantage of indoor positioning in your apps. This lets apps measure the distance between your device and the closest Wi-Fi access points to determine your indoor location. The protocol uses Android’s current location system to preserve privacy and does not actually connect to Wi-Fi access points

HEIF and HDR VP9 support.
Android P adds built-in support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) VP9 Profile 2, which lets developers build playback support for HDR in their app. It also has support for High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF), a relatively new format that packs twice as much image data as a JPEG image while maintaining a similar file size.

No Orange Colour When You turn on Battery Saver
Android P finally gets rid of the hideous orange colour that used to apper on top and bottom of the screen when the battery saver was turned on. In place of the orange bars now Android P has a persistant Notification in the Notification Drawer which is a welcome Change.

Android P Easter Egg
Since Google has still not announced the Name for Android P, the first developer built does contain an Easter Egg but it is just the letter P which changes colour when you tap it. You can also pinch to zoom to make the P look bigger or smaller. Looks like we have to wait for sometime to know the real name of Android P. What do you guys think its going to be let us know in the comments.

So, Are you guys excited about the launch of Android P? And Which features are you expecting to see soon in MIUI? Let us know in the comments below
