Learn how to get upcoming Android P’s rotation suggestion and lockdown feature on any current Android smartphone or tablet. Just recently, Google officially published Android P Developer Preview 3 / Public Beta 2. If you don’t have a compliant device that you can run the beta builds on, use the guide ahead to test some of the popular features directly on your current smartphone or tablet. Android P has a lot of great new features that we think users would appreciate to have on their current Android OS as Android P is not yet available to the public. With this guide, we will show you how to achieve Android P Rotation Suggestion and Lockdown functionality, step by step.

As we already know that Android OS offers users a lot of unlock options built-in. However, with the upcoming revision, Google has tried to twist the lock feature. When the lockdown option is enabled on Android P, it disables any kind of bio-metric unlocking option, leaving just PIN and Pattern. Another highlight feature which you can test out is rotation suggestion which allows device screen to rotate 90 degrees even after Auto-Rotation is turned off. The great thing is that you can get these two feature on any Android device now with steps ahead.
