Android P has taken the world by storm so far. What we mean by this is that ever since Google announced it, almost everyone has been raving about all of its new features, some of the significant changes that it bring and, most importantly, when it is going to be available in a stable and official version. We cannot tell you the exact date of when the OS is going to be available in an official release (although most people speculate that it is going to happen sometime this fall) but what we can tell you is that the Android P DP3 preview is available and it brings some small changes.
What do we mean?
Sometime after Pixel 2 came out, Google came up with a feature that would provide light/dark themes, depending on the color hues of your wallpaper. This exclusive feature did not stay that exclusive to Pixel devices for long since just a couple of days later Android 8.1 Oreo came with an almost identical function. Yes, it has not been that long since this feature came out but it looks like Google is already working on coming up with a series of improvement. And we are all for it if you want to believe us.
Now, the easiest way to notice the change would be by putting the DP3 and DP2 live wallpapers side by side. The first thing that you can see is that with DP2 you had a dark but somewhat transparent background for the app drawer but with DP3 that a dark background surrounds the app drawer. This is not limited to the app drawer. Google Feed also has a dark background as well. Now, some people have said that the darker background still holds a bit of transparency to it. Overall, it is still a significant improvement compared to the previous option.
Now, it is all up to you to decide whether this change is that noticeable or that important. Personally, the change brings this dark cohesion to both the app drawer and the Feed. It is indeed more aesthetic. There is something about a solid dark color that seems to have a sleek and effortless design, and we are certainly all about it. For some people, seeing you background while looking through your drawer may make it seem more dated and more tedious. It is fun to spice things up, and the difference is certainly all in the small details.
