Sa2ration's usefulness is somewhat limited because it only works on rooted devices on Oreo and above. So far it has only been tested on the Pixel 1 and 2, through other rooted phones should work.

Android P Volume Slider - P Volume Control

I'm not entirely sure what to think of Android P Volume Slider. The app does slightly mimic the look of the new volume slider found in Android P, but the thing is, it doesn't replace your default slider. You have to leave this app running at all times so that you can access it from your notification drawer in order to pull up the slider. To me, this does not appear to be that convenient unless you require a specific feature that your current device doesn't offer.

Huawei Wallet

Android Police coverage: Huawei Wallet arrives in the Play Store

Apparently, Huawei Wallet has been available for some time in China because Google Pay does not exist in that region. So it's interesting to see the app now available on the Play Store, possibly pointing to a Western expansion. So far this release is still locked behind a Huawei ID login that requires the Huawei Mobile Service app, which sadly leaves out the majority of potential users. Hopefully, this changes soon.
