Android Oreo officially launched: Here are the best new features

So, the secrecy around the Android O code name is finally expelled.

On Monday night, Google announced the name of its latest version of Android through a "live stream" and a short clip that first showed the O in Android O as the solar eclipse before the animation changed it into the Oreo, which also [designed to] coincided with solar eclipse in the US. It is the company of Andy Rubin, the co-founder of Android.

In a statement Google said the Pixel phones and Nexus series by Google have already entered carrier testing, and Google will start rolling out the new OS for these phones in phases soon. The launcher design will also be upgraded.

Prefer to wait for the final, more stable, version of the OS?

Android Oreo officially launched: Here are the best new features

Right now the developer preview is installable on Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, and the Pixel C. As for consumer devices, of course, just because Android O gets a public release in August/September doesn't mean all phones will have access to it right away.

A brand-new feature called Picture-in-Picture allows you to watch YouTube videos or video chat whilst continuing to use your device for other things. The care on overall system health is due to the limitation in the frequency of location updates in the background. But that's only possible if you have one of the compatible devices listed above. Older Pixel and Nexus phones should get an Android O downloadable update shortly after that. The new platform arrives with a bunch of new features - an in-depth look at which you can read about at the previous link - but it's when the software will be delivered to handsets, rather than what it delivers, that will be the biggest concern for most people. Also, Nokia has been banking on a "pure updated Android" stance for Nokia 3,5,6 and 8, so it is to see now what is up next with this quick OS release.

Most Chinese brands have their own engineers to "customize" the open-source Android for their users. According to India Today, the Finnish tech giant has also confirmed that the Android 8.0 update will roll out to the newly released Nokia 8 smartphone.

Minimizes the the background activity in the apps. You can expect this 'soon' to come by the end of September. Like Android, Google wants Assistant to be everywhere and used by all manner of applications. Vitals works in the background keeping your device more safe and secure from viruses, hackers, and worms.
