Android P Developer Preview 2 factory and OTA images released for Pixel smartphones

09 May 2018 4

The first Android P Developer Preview hit Nexus and Pixel devices in March this year. Since then Google has been working tirelessly to roll out the second developer preview of Android P. The company has also been working on new features which will be included in Android P Developer Preview 2. This includes new navigation gestures as well as adaptive battery, features which will definitely benefit Android users. The company announced Android P Developer Preview 2 at Google I/O 2018 and is now available for download through factory and OTA images for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL.

Google has planned a series of five Developer Previews of Android P and has termed the second one as an “incremental update” and the first beta. Android P Developer Preview 2 is “available for daily use, development, or compatibility testing” even though it isn’t Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) approved. Rumour has it that Google Pay works smoothly. However, one would have to try it for themselves to verify it. Well, considering this is a beta and a developer preview it may have a few bugs here and there and may not be usable as a daily driver. In addition to the new navigation gestures and adaptive battery feature, the Android P Developer Preview 2 comes with a redesigned Overview screen, an updated “Markup” screenshot editor, tweaked volume slider and new charging sounds.

If you’re impatient and can’t wait for an over-the-air update of Android P Developer Preview 2, you can flash the factory images for build PPP2.180412.013. The download links are listed below.

So many new updates in the wings like the tweaked volume slider along with new charging sounds apart from the %u201CMarkup%u201D screenshot editor. It's quite a feast of features.
