Android P introduces several enhancements to notifications, all of which are available to developers targeting Android P and above. If you own a Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P, we've got some bad news. For instance, Messaging notifications in Android P will now display images and this will be an option for developers to activate. Android fragmentation has always been a real thing and it's unlikely to change anytime soon. However, the monthly security updates will be regular on the devices. Well, if the release of Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 8.0 Oreo is anything to go by, then you should expect Android P to drop sometime in late August.

Additionally, with Google dropping support for the Pixel C, the company no longer officially supports a first-party tablet.

On the list are the Pixel 2, Pixel XL 2, Pixel, and Pixel XL.

Android P doesn't look like it's going to be an earth-shattering revamp of the current formula.

For more information about the beta, take a look at our guide. The final update will be made available to the public in the third quarter of 2018.

The Nexus 5X and 6P arrived in 2016 promising two years of full support for Android updates and time's now up.

The Android P Developer Preview is now only open to owners of the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. One will be free, the other will cost you. For now Android P is meant for app developers, phone makers and people involved in fine-tuning phone software.

Today, Google formally announced the next major update to Android, now called Android P. But for now, users without a Pixel 1, 1XL, 2, or 2XL are out of luck. Considering the V30 is running Nougat, the updated Pixel Launcher wouldn't launch correctly. And this two-year cut-off date is something that Google has already met for the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P given the fact that these phones were launched in the Q4, 2015.
