Android P Features Leaked Ahead of Google’s I/O Conference

With just a few hours away from Google’s I/O keynote, a new leak reveals the new features in the upcoming Android P. This includes revamped navigation, additional gestures that turn the home button into a scrolling bar, adaptive battery, and a DND (Do not disturb) feature.

From the leak and the provided screenshots, you can see a new option on the settings menu called “Swipe up the Home button,” which removes the recent apps button on the right and replaces the home button with a horizontal scroll. It is speculated that a single swipe-up switch between apps and a second swipe will display the previous apps. The recent app’s menu also gets a face over which a horizontal scroll pops up in the home button’s place, resulting in easy navigation because of the horizontal position rather than vertical. However, providing a navigation button while having gestures is undoubtedly a step backward.

A new “Prevent ringing “feature can also be activated by pressing the volume up and the power button. The battery gets a new saving feature called “Adaptive battery,” which will let you squeeze more juice out of your battery by targeting distribution and limiting unused apps’ background activity.
