Android P nears completion, Beta 3 released today

Today, shortly after Google announced both July security patches and a new Android P beta, Essential is rolling out both to the Essential Phone. "It's a great way to test your apps now to make sure they are ready before the final release", the company writes.

Though it's Beta 3, this is also Developer Preview 4 - the first Developer Preview wasn't in the Beta channel - with a final Developer Preview (DP5) expected to be released just prior to the launch of Android P according to the Android P Developer Preview timeline.

"Android P Beta 3 includes the latest bug fixes and optimisations for stability and polish, together with the July 2018 security updates".

Among the key updates this time out are finalized APIs so developers can start testing and building apps for the new version of the software.
