Google releases Android P Beta 2, including 157 new emoji

This has been happening on a monthly basis since the Stagefright vulnerability came out, and Google has been steadily patching vulnerabilities in Android month on month. This update is coming to the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel C. If you're already enrolled and received the Android P Beta 1 on your Pixel device, you'll automatically get the update to Beta 2. The UI also seems to pop preview cards into place as you swipe up too, there's a subtle vibration as you do so, and the entire gesture animation in general feels smoother. The betas, however, can be obtained at android.com/beta. And for developers, this release marks the final version of the Android P APIs.

Android P Developer Preview 3 is rolling out now!

Developers are asked to play with these builds early so they can explore new features and APIs for apps, test for compatibility, and give feedback. And then the first beta followed in May, bringing gesture navigation and other new features.

Adaptive Battery uses machine learning to prioritize system resources for the apps you care about the most.

Google notes that these emoji may be tweaked before the final consumer release of Android P this summer.

Redheads are finally recognised, while a new superhero emoji can be represented in two genders and five skin tones. The list includes two gender neutral emojis, offering awn additional options for the Family and Couple With Heart emojis, joinging last year's addition of a gender-neutral Adult emoji.
