Android P Beta 3 is rolling out now

The first chance to smoke out use of those interfaces before Android P debuts probably tips this release over into something of decent importance for many Android developers. This pace makes a August 2018 release date look even more likely.

For developers, Android P Beta 3 includes the latest bug fixes and optimizations for stability.

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.

What we do know is that Android P's features were frozen just under four weeks ago, so it's not as if the new beta will teach you anything new about the OS. You can do so by enrolling here.

By default, the device theme is set to Automatic (based on wallpaper) like we've had since the Pixel 2 came out last October.

The update is going out from today to Pixel devices as the third installment to the public beta schedule. In the light theme, the background of the notifications shade will turn white, in dark, it has a black background.

However, the latest Android P beta still does bring the Android dashboard feature which was announced at Google I/O in May.

We're conflicted because Google's described the new release as "an early release candidate build" and says the full release is due "later this [northern] summer". This feature will let users keep a tab of their smartphone usage. Android P's final name is not confirmed, but this will be version 9 of Android. Those who are already running Beta 2, meanwhile, will get the update automatically. However, the settings pages and other elements of Android will not change.
