Android 8.0 Oreo Launched With Latest Features See All Details
It’s official — The newest version of Google’s mobile operating system is called Android 8.0 Oreo, and it will soon start rolling out to Nexus and Pixel devices. This new version has plenty of changes in store, ranging from revamped looks to under-the-hood improvements, so there’s tons of cool new stuff to explore.
If you own a non-Google flagship device like the Galaxy S8 or OnePlus 5, you’ll likely have to wait a few months before Android Oreo hits your own phone. But if you’re curious about this new version, or if you have a Nexus or Pixel to test it out on, let’s go ahead and take a look at all of the new features and functionality in Android 8.0.
Android 8.0 Oreo features:-
Battery-Saving Background Restriction:
To protect users’ battery life and performance, Google has put automatic limits on app background activities in Android O. These background limits will specifically include implicit broadcasts, background services, and location updates. For users, this means less energy consumption, and ultimately, longer battery life.
Android O makes it easier to find the apps that consume the most battery power. Usually, Facebook or WhatsApp end up on the list. But only with Android O can you see if the apps have been draining your battery with background activities, or whether they are only using battery life when you’re in the app.
With the new picture-in-picture mode, multitasking is even easier. You can have an app open or play a video in a small window, much like what you can do in the YouTube app already, instead of showing it side-by-side with another app in the usual multi-window mode. This is similar to the floating bubble of Facebook Messenger for Android
Smart Text Selection
The text selection menu in Android Oreo has also been updated. It now includes intelligent actions that can vary depending on the type of text you’ve selected. Select a URL, and Android 8.0 will suggest opening it in Chrome. Select a phone number, and the Dialer app will appear. An address and Maps will pop-in, and so on.
Taking another step towards increased security, Google has added a sticky notification to alert you whenever an application is running an overlay in Android Oreo. The screen overlay permission was added in Android Nougat, so apps had to ask permission to draw over other apps. In Android 8.0, not only will the permission be required, but you’ll also be alerted with a notification that doesn’t go away until the overlay has.
Small circles will appear on top of your app icons when you have unread notifications, and long pressing them will give you a preview of the notification. This will be standardized in Android O, much like in iOS and various alternative Android launchers.
New round emoji
Most of the above-listed changes have been around since the first developer preview build of Android 8.0. But one major change that came in more recently is a set of revamped emojis. Google has finally ditched the blob-shaped smilies in favor of more traditional rounded ones, and most emojis now have a gradient applied to them.
HDR displays are officially supported
HDR is an interesting feature, but there was little support on the system side. Now, apps can define how to save and display image resources with a wide range of colors. Google says this is especially relevant for image processing app.
Google has added a handful of high-quality Bluetooth codecs to Android Oreo, including Sony’s LDAC, which should greatly improve audio quality with compatible Bluetooth devices.
App icons will adapt automatically to the manufacturer’s UI. The appearance of app icons differs across the wide range of devices running Android. Thus, an app icon may appear to be circular in the launcher of one device and square in another. That, of course, depends on the manufacturer’s skin, but it’s cool to see that Google will now offer a standard for adapting application icons to the UI (if the developer does).
Google has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo for Pixel and Nexus devices that are in the Android Beta program. While most Android owners can expect the usual wait to receive the latest version of Android, owners of Google’s Nexus and Pixel handsets will get the update “soon”. For all non-Google devices, you’ll have to wait until well after the official launch of Android 8.0 to see Android Oreo on your device – somewhere between three months and a year depending on your handset manufacturer and carrier.
