Google is blocking custom overlays for its upcoming mobile operating system, Android P. Substratum is trying to ensure this decision is reversed, by initiating a powerful petition on change.org. With over 10,000 signatures, it continues onward.
While Android P was expected to make a Pi Day Debut, Google has released the first developer preview for its new operating system a week earlier than expected. Notch support, privacy improvements and UI changes make their debut in this release.
Google's Android P is expected to introduce the ability to let users turn their Android phones into Bluetooth peripherals. Code commits in AOSP have revealed the addition of the Bluetooth HID device profile service in Android P based builds.
Android Auto head units are typically expensive and only shipped with newer cars (as the technology is still fairly new). A developer has decided to tackle the problem with a Rasberry Pi, touchscreen, and a Linux OS.
LG released a bootloader unlock for their V30 only 3 weeks after the release date of the phone, but for some reason have yet to release one for the US V30+ which is virtually identical to the already unlocked V30.
Google's Android P developer preview is expected to launch in the middle of March, to coincide with Pi Day. While Google will share more on Android P in May this year, reports have surfaced hinting at redesigns and integration with Google Assistant.
