The world of technology is now anticipating the next Android version that will likely be introduced through the Google I / O 2018 event. The developer conference will run from May 8 to May 10 at Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, California. A recent news that appears in the online media reveals a number of important features that will be embedded in Android P.
As reported by Bloomberg, Android P will also support a flexible display design and folders that can be folded display. This is in contrast to the next iOS version that is more focused on the performance and stability of the device rather than carrying many new features. By bringing more new features, Google hopes to lure iPhone users into switching to Android devices.
A massive overhaul on the Android platform is also being set up that will allow camera sensors and other sensors to be placed on devices with flexible screen designs or folding screens. It is said that Android 9.0 will later support the smartphone with notch at the top of the screen as can users see on the iPhone X.
In addition to the iPhone X-like notch, Android’s update this year will expand Google Assistant integration. Google also plans to allow software developers to integrate Google’s voice-based technology into the applications they create.
Google is said to also integrate search bar on the Android P home screen with its personal assistant feature. Even so the integration is still not completed. Updates from the side of the views that follow are done that will serve a fresh impression on the eyes. Speculation is circulating also mention the possibility of the release of Material Design 2. The new design language is also expected to make the device interface look simpler.
A number of previous rumors also confirmed that Android P will also be equipped with a call recording feature. The mobile operator will also be able to hide the signal strength received by the device. This latter feature is actually quite surprising considering its existence which can actually confuse users.

Whether you are working in construction sites, mining fields, or any kind of harsh environment, you certainly need the equipment that can take the toll of it. Starting from your clothes and shoes to your nifty gadgets like your smartphone.
And if your smartphone can’t take the wear and tear that your workplace can bring, you might need a new one. If you’re looking for a new phone, you might want to check out some rugged phones in the market.
They’re the most reliable handsets and will not fail you at the workplace. They can certainly take some beating and are resistant to most outdoor elements which can easily break a regular phone.

Mapping Drives with Group Policy Preferences and Item-Level Targeting
Mapping a drive means that you want permanent access to a shared folder created on another computer. Windows OS will assign a drive letter to the network drive and it can be accessed just like any other local drive connected to your computer.
Mapping network drives with group policy preference is very easy and it does not require any scripting knowledge. Also, We can use item-level targeting to map drives based on specific conditions like group membership, OU, operating system, etc.
In this example, We will use item-level targeting so it only maps the network drive for users who are a member of the specific security group.
For this guide already I have created.
Two users with the name HR User1 and HR User2
One security group name HRUsers. (HR User1 is a member of this security group)
It works perfectly fine for us.
Now, any user we put in the HRUsers security group will get this mapped drive.
