Google releases June security patches for all supported Pixel and Nexus devices

According to Essential, the update contains the June security patch, the latest Google Android P code integration, improved adaptive brightness range, and increased stability.

If you're already testing the Android P beta on your Pixel or other compatible devices, Google says you will soon get Beta 2 over-the-air (OTA). The changelog would imply that it is, and the difference in name merely stems from this being the first Android P release Essential considers stable enough for Beta use.

Also to be found in the Android P DP3 release are App Actions and Slices.

Today Google has released the second beta version of Android P, which is the third developer preview if you're keeping score. You can find a complete list of compatible devices on the Android P Beta website.

With the Android P beta program, Google opened participating to some hardware partners such as Nokia and OnePlus. Google is also revamping the turtle and cricket emoji in this update.

You can migrate to this new release one of two ways.

Google tells us there are 157 new emoji, in fact. In addition, Android P will support two new gender-neutral designs: Family and Couple with Heart, with more to come. Some highlights include red hair so gingers don't feel left out, a hero emoji that looks a lot like Superman, and a bagel with cream cheese - New Yorkers, rejoice. Just to be sure, though, we've reached out to Essential to confirm, and we'll update with whatever information we might get.
