Android P Features Now Available on Any Android Phone

Android P, brings a new look to the popular operating system. What caught our eye were the colorful, rounded interface as well as a cavalcade of new features.

If you want to install these new features on your Android device, you’ll need to adjust your settings so that your phone supports apps from unknown sources because these apps aren’t available through the Google Play store. To do this, go to Settings, select Lock screen and security, and toggle the slider beside Unknown sources. If you are using Android Oreo, keep in mind that you will need to enable specific apps to install APK (Android PacKage) files.

With that out of the way, you can now run through the various Android P features you can add to your older Android system these apps created by some clever developers  that mimic some of its features such as:

Lockdown Mode

This app will prevent users from unlocking the phone via biometrics. Android P users can tap the power button, followed by Lockdown to disable the fingerprint sensor.

Android P Launcher

After downloading the Android P launcher APK, tap it within the notification shade, and install it. If using Oreo, tap to allow it to install from an unknown source. Changing the launcher is the bigger change you can make to your Android system.

Volume Slider

If you want to benefit from the new placement of the volume slider, download the APK from the appropriate source and install it to move it from the top of the screen to the side.

Smart Replies

The ability to use “smart suggested replies” is one of P’s most nifty features. You can have your texts answered at the length of one tap if you download the Smart Replay APK, and install it. You can select from a range of appropriate responses because when you get a text message, you can view it within the notification shade, and Android will automatically generate some appropriate responses.

Screenshot Markup

Android P has a new substantial update regarding the screenshots function. The Markup app that enables this on older Android devices works a little differently, however. You will need to share your screenshot with the Markup app, once installed, which will then allow you to make changes.
