Google released Android P Developer Preview 4 (Beta 3) today for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL. This is an almost-final build that should be mostly stable. Since we’re closing in on Developer Preview 5 and the final release, not much has changed, but there are enough tweaks that we thought a post was necessary.
