Machine learning helped Google prevent installation of 60.3% of harmful apps

Machine learning helped Google prevent installation of 60.3% of harmful apps

At present, Android P's API level for apps is v17 which is the same for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Android P will also allow you to disable the fingerprint sensor, which is one of the biggest features of Android P.

The Mountain View giant announced last December that it is implementing new requirements for Android apps. This essentially means that apps which are now available in the app store but built for Android versions lower than 4.2 will not run on Android P. Google Play Protect runs on Android versions from Android 4.3 or better, and it constantly scans Android apps for malicious activity. According to Android Police, this would mean that apps submitted to the Play Store following Android P's release need to target for Android 8.0 Oreo or above. Part of which is demanding developers to ensure that their apps in the Play Store would have to target an API level no more than 1 year older than the current codename release. Apple also recently informed all app developers to update their apps to 64-bits in order to stay on the Apple app store.

"We're now Wear OS by Google, a wearables operating system for everyone", Dennis stated. It isn't clear if Google will not allow these apps to run completely or still issue warnings around it. Apple with the release of iOS 11 previous year made it clear that the OS will only support 64-bit apps. These included protections against the installation of apps from unknown or untrusted sources, kernel hardening and the elimination of support for insecure network protocols. However, that is set to change with the arrival of the upcoming Android P, as it will no longer support those apps. For early adopters, right now Android P is in the development stage and the developer version is available if you want to manually download it. Android P will disable apps from using your smartphone's microphone in the background.

Apps like Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram require using your microphone and camera.

Android P is said to include the new layer of hues to play with.

Android has a reputation for being less secure than Apple's iOS, but Google says its platform has gotten a bad rap. The notification drawer will have rounded corners and users will be able to reply to messages directly from here.
