Over the weekend, OnePlus appears to have silently (accidentally?) rolled out its next Android Q Developer Preview for the OnePlus 7 Pro. Among the included features are new "super macro" and focus tracking settings for the camera, Digital Wellbeing, configurable Zen Mode duration, and new options for gesture navigation.

When Nokia sent out its last Android 9 Pie developer preview at the beginning of August, HMD Global CPO Juho Sarvikas proclaimed on Twitter that it would be the last one before the final stable version, due this month.

Assistant-launching microphone button removed from Pixel launcher in Android P DP5

Moving the Google search box to the bottom of the Pixel launcher was a divisive change, although it makes complete sense to me.

Google just dropped the fifth developer preview of Android P and there aren't an awful lot of changes for us to pick through.
