One of the most debated parts of Android P is what is the P actually going to stand for? The theme of the Android OS versions so far has centred around desserts. Some speculation has hinted at some sort of pie, but Google will reveal all when we see the preview.


The main features of Android P won’t be revealed in the preview version, this is released to give developers a chance to identify and work out bugs and get their apps ready for the new OS. There has been talk of better security options and the ability to block scam calls.



The majority of the Android P features will be revealed at the Google I/O in May this year so we don’t have too long to see where Google goes with their latest OS.


When the new version of Android is released, users of Google Pixel phones or handsets in the Android One series will be the first to get it.
