Google released the beta version of its next major smartphone OS, Android P, at I/O 2018.

Sure, it's fair to expect a few visual tweaks year-over-year.

Slices takes the suggestions part a step further by giving you a slice or a part of an app from within another app when you need it the most.

"Helping people with their digital well-being is more important to us than ever", a Google executive said at the firm's annual I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California, on Tuesday.

One of the big things Google showed off was its phone-less integration with Volvo and what it could look like if other vehicle manufacturers started using this technology as well.

We installed the Android P beta on the Pixel phone and it looks refreshed and we like some of the features. For too long, the auto companies have watched customers get into their vehicles, plug in their smartphones and nearly never use the system their engineers built.

And no, you wouldn't possibly know that you were talking to a bot if you were on the receiving end of that phone call. After you've hit that, the app will gray out on your home screen and you won't be able to launch it. For example, "I haven't seen you" might be autocompleted to "I haven't seen you in a while and I hope you're doing well".

Tap on the menu icon in the top left corner of the display, locate the Google Assistant subheading and then select More settings. Just like the iPhone X, Android P devices will sport some new navigational moves.

The media system will work on the OS Android. To switch back to full mode, a long press on the same button will do that for you.

Here's something you might not read about elsewhere. All the home button's features are still there.

In addition to the new "digital well-being" features, Android P will provide a new way to navigate phones.

Google's voice assistant is also getting more voices like Apple's Siri and adds six new voices to choose from.

On the current Android O apps are unable to see your network activity content, however, they can detect when you are connected to an external server. The Mi Mix 2S will continue to get developer builds as Google releases them, though we don't know if all future developer previews will be stock Android-based.
