The final Android P Developer Preview is rolling out today and brings the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system closer to a public launch. Developer Preview 5 is officially the “release candidate for final testing” and should be very similar to what consumers will install later this summer.

Today’s Beta 4 update includes a release candidate build with final system behaviors and the official Android P APIs (API level 28), available since Beta 2. It includes everything you need to wrap up your testing in time for the upcoming official Android P release.

Past releases introduced and refined the completely redesigned gestural system navigation, Recents view, revamped Quick Settings, and added smart AI-powered features like Adaptive Battery and Brightness. Release notes for Beta 4 are available here.
