Android 15 Developer Preview 1 coming tomorrow

Michail, 14 February 2024

A Google developer spilled the beans on the imminent first preview of Android 15. The first developer preview for Android V (Vanilla Ice Cream) as it is internally known will be released tomorrow, February 15. This timing makes sense and is a week later than last year’s first developer preview for Android 14.

Android 15 is expected to offer a Private Spaces feature which allows you to lock some apps from appearing in your app list. Lock Screen widgets are expected to make a return and Google is expected to bring full-screen apps that will display content under the navigation and status bars. Android 15 DP will be available for Google Pixel 6 and newer Pixel devices.

Developer preview builds are only recommended for app developers to use for app testing but as long as you have a supported Pixel device, you'll be able to download and install the firmware build.

"coming tomorrow"

Should bring lock screen scrambled pin layout, firewall/per-app internet blocking feature, a temporary 'off'/pause functionality for the other users, like the pause function for work apps in current Android, also built-in app cloning,..

Brother, Google and samsung are on the same team. Samsung is probably helping Google in this stuff. Also, if something good is finally added to stock Android, why do people like you take it so negatively
