A Beta 3 version of Android P mobile operating system is rolling out for testing, allowing developers to see how their apps would work with the latest updates. It's close to being complete, so what can users expect to get with the upcoming rollout?

Although not ready for general release, Android P Beta 3 is getting "very close to what you'll see in the final version," notes Dave Burke, Google VP of Engineering (Android) in a blogpost on July 2. Set to roll out in late summer, while what the ‘P' stands for remains a mystery (will the 9.0 version of the operating system go by the name of Pancake, Popsicle, Pumpkin Pie...?), a few of the features it will include are coming to light.
