Google rolls out June 2018 security patch for Pixel and Nexus devices

Android P DP3 includes entirely new characters, tweaks to existing ones, and more efforts to offer a range of diverse and inclusive designs.

Today Google has released the second beta version of Android P, which is the third developer preview if you're keeping score.

Final APIs don't mean that Android P will be released any day now.

Similarly, OTA and system images you can manually flash to your handset are available, at least for the time being, exclusively for Google's in-house Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and 2 XL.

Others can enroll their device in the Android Beta program.

The Alphabet subsidiary also added support for display notches in Android P, including new APIs for "rich, edge-to-edge experience on the latest screens". The list includes two gender neutral emojis, offering awn additional options for the Family and Couple With Heart emojis, joinging last year's addition of a gender-neutral Adult emoji.

Redheads are finally recognised, while a new superhero emoji can be represented in two genders and five skin tones. Google is also revamping the turtle and cricket emoji in this update. Google has released the June security patch updates to all of its supported devices. The company partnered with DeepMind to use machine learning to improve battery life; the feature is called Adaptive Battery. You can use the Google Play's beta testing feature to get early feedback from a small group of users and then do a staged rollout across alpha, beta, and production channels.
