Android P ditches 'app is using battery' notification, says Google

According to a report by 9to5Google, Android engineering lead Dave Burke has confirmed that the feature will come back to a future version of Android P Beta for now, and perhaps even to the final stable version that goes live later this year.

By removing the compositing time and adding a prediction logic, Google claims that the traditional 100ms delay has been reduced to almost zero. For outlets with subscriptions, Google will allow you to subscribe directly through your Google account, without needing new passwords or credit-card information. And as you can see, the media control appears first, as well as under that; you get to toggle calls set to ring, vibrate or mute also. Along with that, there's now also a new dashboard that shows you stats of how much time you spend on a particular app.

Google paid close attention while integrating the Assistant.

In Android P, tapping and holding the Home button launches the Google Assistant, while there is no such function in an iPhone X.

Then there's Adaptive Battery, which figures out your app usage and will prioritise battery for the ones which are used most, to help improve efficiency and extend the smartphone's average battery life.
