This new version comes almost a month after the company launched the first Beta version at Google I/O 2018. People who are interested in installing this new version can install it through an OTA (over the air) update or download and flash it manually if they have a Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2, or a Google Pixel 2 XL. The major change with this version is that this ships with final APIs (Application Programming Interface, through which the apps interact with the operating system) for Android P.
