Pie in The Face: Big Android P Bug Discovered

The release of Android Pie version has put a lot of Android developers on work.

As noted by PiunikaWeb, the team behind Call Recorder - ACR has posted a message on its forums saying: "We would like to inform our users that there will be no call recording workaround on Android 9 and above".

Google added more call recording limits in Android 9 Pie. The company recently rolled out Android P Developer Preview 5 (Beta 4) for the mid-range smartphone, Nokia 7 Plus. The call recording feature has been sought after by those productivity-seeking people, which also has been the reason why many still stick to Android. A quick search on the Play Store reveals several hundred call recording apps, so it is a highly requested feature. However, that case is about to change as call recording will now be a thing of the past on Android. Android 9 Pie has been pushed out to Pixel phones and the Essential phone but everyone else is still waiting.

The addition entrusts machine learning with identifying what apps the user harnesses most in order to optimise power flow.

Well to cut through some of the speculation and uncertainty, some OEMs have already released statements promising the Android 9.0 Pie update for some of their devices.

However, Google insisted the charger provided with the original Pixel did "not exhibit this behaviour", appearing to counter the claims the made by the user on its Issue Tracker blog.

On the basis of tips received from our readers, we will collate a list of markets and the Nokia 7 Plus variants for which August Security update is now available. But, those who may opt for the latter option, must be aware rooting will void any warranty on their device. Notably, the three Nokia smartphones will be receiving Android 9 Pie update by the end of 2018. It's always better to be late than sorry!
