This Could Possibly Be Android P’s Best Feature

Published

on

For the longest time, you couldn’t control any of the notifications coming on your phone from Android itself. Things like apps running in the background or using battery, networks alerts or your VPN status had to stay there front and center in your notifications until you dismissed them.

Then with Oreo’s notification channels, you could at least lower the importance of a notification so it didn’t take precious space in your drop-down. Oreo 8.1 also introduced one neat change: you could disable notifications for apps running in the background, but that was the only one to be turned off completely.

With Android P DP1, all of Android System and System UI’s notifications became togglable. You could turn any of them completely off. DP2 is changing that again, only giving you the choice to disable a few of the notifications. So let’s take a look.

For System UI notifications, DP2 adds a new Hints channel and, compared to DP1, leaves you the option to turn off two channels only: Battery and Screenshots. I assume the battery one is the notification that gets triggered when you reach the low battery threshold. The screenshot one is obvious.
For Android System notifications, there are more differences to discuss. First, there are three new channels: App running, Do Not Disturb, and System changes. Second, Oreo 8.1 didn’t let you toggle any of them off, DP1 allowed all of them to be turned off, and DP2 now only leaves you with a few channels you can switch off: Car mode, Developer messages, Network alerts, Network available, Physical keyboard, and Virtual keyboard.
So from now on if you get an annoying notification in Android P that you previously thought you couldn’t dismiss or completely block, make sure you check the System UI and Android System’s channels to see if you can disable it.

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore 5

I woke up to a very disappointing news yesterday,Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore and believe me I was very upset about this move. This is coming at a time where Huawei is making changes to the Android market as we know it and Google revoked their licence based on mere accusations,

Accusations that haven’t been even proved to be true. This decision would probably worsen the trade war between China and the United States.

The consequences of this may end up affecting all technological markets and the world economy in general. Don’t forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones

Newer devices from Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail. However, you can simply access those Android updates through AOSP and GAPPs but without any support from Google.

Donald Trump had accused Huawei of working for the Chinese government, installing back doors in their networks and devices to facilitate surveillance, without any evidence at all.

This made the senior manager of Huawei get arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. Recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to Reuters, Google is the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like Qualcomm, Intel, NVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.
