Android M: Neue Preview verfügbar

nexus 6 test

Seit einiger Zeit sehnlichst erwartet, nun endlich da: Die Android M Preview 2. Von einem OTA-Update ist noch nichts in Sicht zum Zeitpunkt des Artikels.

Soeben hat Google eine neue Preview der kommenden Android Version für das Nexus 5,6 und 9 veröffentlicht, wenngleich auch etwas später als erhofft. Hauptsächlich gibt es in der neuen Version jede Menge Bugfixes und kleine Verbesserungen. Falls euch etwas neues auffällt gerne in die Kommentare damit.

Eigentlich sollte das Update via OTA kommen, davon ist in den ersten Minuten aber noch nichts zu sehen. Sicherlich wird sich das schon bald noch ändern. UPATE: Für Nexus 6 gibt es direkt hier das OTA-Update zur manuellen Installation.

    Key changes:

    Permissions changes
    The android.permission.USE_FINGERPRINT permission now has „normal“ protection level, so it is no longer necessary to request this permission directly from the user. The USE_FINGERPRINT permission enables fingerprints to be enabled for authentication, but does not give the requesting app access to the enrollment/fingerprint administration flow.
    The android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission has protection level „dangerous“, meaning that apps wanting to write to external storage will need to request permission from the user at runtime. Both WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE are members of the STORAGEpermission group.
    Remote Bluetooth/Wi-Fi MAC’s now require either the android.permission.LOCATION_FINE orandroid.permission.LOCATION_COURSE permission.
    Some accounts and identity permissions are moved to CONTACTS permissions group and others are removed or granted based on account type. In particular, android.permission.USE_CREDENTIALS,android.permission.MANAGE_ACCOUNTS, and android.permission.AUTHENTICATE_ACCOUNTS are ungrouped pending further changes in a later release.
    The Wi-Fi permissions android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_STATE,android.permission.CHANGE_WIMAX_STATE, and android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_MULTICAST_STATEnow have protection level „normal“.
    The Bluetooth permissions android.permission.BLUETOOTH andandroid.permission.BLUETOOTH_ADMIN now have protection level „normal“.
    Bookmarks and subscribed feeds permissions are removed.
    Apps included in the system image are no longer granted dangerous permissions automatically. All apps should check for and request permissions at runtime.
    Introduces the utility method Activity.shouldShowRequestPermissionRationale(String), which lets your app see whether users have previously rejected a permission request. This lets you know that your app should explain the the user why it needs that permission. For more information see the Permissions developer guide.
    Other changes
    The android.app.AssistContent and android.app.AssistStructure classes are moved into a new package, android.app.assist.
    Bluetooth Stylus APIs are updated and include new callback events. TheView.OnStylusButtonPressListener class is renamed to View.OnContextClickListener andGestureDetector.OnStylusButtonPressListener class to GestureDetector.OnContextClickListener.
    TextInputLayout doesn’t set hint for embedded EditText. (fixed issue)
    Camera Permission issue with Legacy Apps (fixed issue)

      Known Issues:

      General issues:
      The system Messenger app crashes on the 64-bit emulator.
      After updating to Developer Preview 2, Contacts sync experiences intermittent issues. The workaround is to clear and re-sync Contact Storage data after update. To clear data, go to Settings > Apps > Show system > Contacts Storage. Select „Storage“ and then Clear data.
      In YouTube app, it’s not possible to share a video. The share window is blank.
      Android For Work Profile setup is not working properly, so you won’t be able to create a new Work Profile after you update. As a workaround, make sure to create the Work Profiles you need in Developer Preview 1 before updating to Developer Preview 2.
