How to install Android P right now

Google's Android security patch for March now available for Nexus and Pixel devices

Android P will let apps manage how the content is displayed on devices with a notch on the front.

If you've got a Google Pixel or Pixel 2 device, you can now give Android P a try.

The Android P Developer Preview 1 build does contain an Easter egg. Google is adamant that this release is exclusively for developers at this point, so we don't suggest that you try downloading images right this instant to install on your personal Android device. There are factory images for the Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2, and Google Pixel 2 XL, and you can sideload them right now. Perhaps the most notable is official support for displays with a notch.

So far, some features on the Android P seem to emulate quite a bit from Apple, such as the bubble-like notifications look borrowed from iOS and notch support for all the newly announced Android devices that have been copying the look iPhone X made mainstream. Speaking of which, the app drawer also looks different, although I'm not sure if this is due to Android P being as new as it is or not.

Another feature coming with Android P is Wi-Fi Round-Trip-Time (RTT) support. In the first Android P Developer Preview, the notifications and Quick Settings now have rounded corners.

This is the first Android P build and is labeled as an "alpha" release.

Those phones got Oreo, but when P comes out in August or September they will be nearly three years old, so what Google is doing is at least consistent with its own policy. Before then, we'll get five developer previews.
