In preparation for a late summer release, Google on Thursday introduced the third Developer Preview of Android O. The new release follows on the heels of release number two, which Google rolled out after its I/O developer conference.
According to Google, Developer Preview 3 includes the final Android O APIs, the latest system images, and an update to Android Studio. Today’s release encourages developers to make their apps Android O compatible, ensuring consumers experience a seamless transition when the software hits.
When Android O is released, it’ll sport a number of new features, including notification dots, support for picture-in-picture, adaptive icons, and more. You can read about all the best Android O features right here.
As with previous releases, Developer Preview 3 is supported by the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Nexus Player. Google said it plans to release one more Developer Preview after July, followed by the final release.
