In this post, I'll show you how easily get Android P features on any Android device running Oreo, Nougat, Marshmallow and Lollipop OS.

About Android P

The first developer preview of Android P has just launched and it brings a ton of new features . Android 9.0 has bought a bag of goodies with it, and everyone seems to be excited about it. We discovered a lot of changes in the system after running the preview for about a day. The UI has seen a significant makeover in case of notifications, quick settings, volume slider, and settings. Other features include the new Pixel launcher with shaded-dock, inbuilt screenshot editing software known as ‘Markup’, new animations, and left-aligned clock on the status bar. We are merely scratching the surface right now, you’d probably find a lot more when you actually start using it.That’s why it’s sad to know that most of the Android devices existing in the world right now will never get the Android P update. That said, the customize ability of Android as an operating system allows us to bring most of the Android P features to older devices.
