    Are you talking about homemade videos/videos shot on the phone or any videos? I just checked a couple episodes of BBC shows that I still have saved on my phone, and they looked fine. No weird brightness.

    Hi guys,

    I'm having the following 2 issues with the Beta. Please let me know if there's a fix for them.

    1) As mentioned earlier, my Microsoft Outlook app is not working. All my other apps seems to be working fine.

    2) When I play a video from my Photos collection, the brightness turns all the way up and the colors change once the video starts playing. When I play the same video via Instagram, the colors are natural and fine.

    Thanks!
    For outlook, have you tried clear cache and reboot yet?

    Videos taken from my camera that are stored in the Photos app. I've attached screenshots of what I've encountered. One photo shows the normal color and once I press play, the brightness/color changes.

    Just about 2 hrs, im at 78% now though. I've been generally getting around 6.5 hrs on most charge cycles before swapping to beta. Looking forward to seeing if the adaptive battery settings on P work well.

    Based on what I have read in other forums Outlook app works fine as long as you are not on a microsoft MDM solution. I did a factory reset and Outlook app worked fine until I installed intune.

    BlackBerry hub still crashes when you read an email and go to next one.

    Yeah, I'm seeing the same thing with videos. They look fine at first, then a second or two later they get this weird bright, cloudy overlay.

    Here is an example... First is a video when seen in Photos, then in the camera app.


    Now, in Photos, it starts out like normal then snaps to that.. like it decided to crank the contrast way too far.

    I ran almost every video on my phone including one that is two minutes long and I am not experiencing the problem.

    New videos, or ones taken before you upgraded to P? My old videos don't get cloudy.

    It took me a few tries to opt in, finally worked and I got the update almost immediately.
    It does up as able to opt in, but then says cannot add me at this time, try again later. Been trying since last night. Have pixel2 xl on Verizon

    This only happens in videos that are still in local storage. Videos that are only on Photos look fine. I just cleared my backed up stuff and all those videos I took today now look fine.

    Yes, that's the issue I'm running into. Whether the videos are old, or recently shot, I run into this contrast bug.

    Is it just me or we can't choose a location mode anymore? like battery saving option, high precision or oy gps.
    It's not just you. I noticed the same thing. I always toggled mine to battery saving when not using GPS. Apparently now it's either on or off. Not sure how I feel about that.

    Only other issue I've had aside from getting used to it is after the upgrade I wasn't getting any notifications from any apps. My budget in Google sheets was all messed up. Rebooting didn't help so I did a factory reset and that seems to have made a world of difference. I suggest if you didn't and are having lots of issues you try a factory reset.

    Not sure how I feel about the iOS style recent app switcher but there isn't much I can do about it. I do like flicking the button to switch apps quickly. I think I'd be ok with it if it had a clear all button somewhere (I'm not missing it am I?). Performance seems good, I'll let you know on battery life tomorrow.

    At first I had only tried videos I already had. Shot news ones and played them both from the camera and Google photos and I still can't replicate what you're talking about and it doesn't seem to matter if the video is stored on the phone or on Google photos.
    Very strange ......

    Agreed. I know why it's gone and I agree with why it's gone, but I also like knowing it's an option.
    I'll try again - what's the reason that there's no 'Clear all' control in the Recents view?

    The clear all is counterproductive to the resource management system that Android places at the center of its battery conservation and software regency strategies. Android is meant to handle these background take dynamically and is actually very efficient at doing so, however force closing all apps is generally a side effect of the user misunderstanding the way resource management works in Android, rather than what people like me experience, which is the desire to keep things clean and concise from my perspective, even though I'm aware that my perspective is less efficient than what the system can do itself. That is the opposite of windows, which is one of the worlds biggest failures at resource management and which micromanaging active task resourcing is sometimes advisable.
