Smarter Android P

Android P will be Android's smartest OS yet, with four new AI-based features. Specifically, Android P will also be using AI to adjust to user behavior and environment with no manual adjustments necessary.

Adaptive Battery, a new feature, uses machine learning to adapt to application usage patterns to reduce CPU app "wake-ups." The OS will also feature an Adaptive Brightness setting that can adjust a device's brightness based on user preferences or room or outdoor settings. App Actions will be able to predict which app tasks as user will need, based on time of day or circumstance, and can suggest actions, such as a workout. Along a similar vein, App Slices is an API that will let developers put parts of their app into various portions of the OS, such as search. Users that search for Uber, for example, will see how long a ride will take to a typical location, like home, an estimated cost of the ride, and can prompt a user to order a ride right from search.
