Android O ships with powerful features such as picture-in-picture display, which helps you to make use of multiple apps at the same time. It is possible to verify the new features in the apps with notification dots. The autofill option completes the login credentials across several apps. Hence, you need not have to remember them. The new Android O also introduces enhanced battery life through modifications in the background process and memory management.
According to Google, the Android O is capable of powering the device twice fast than the currently available Android platform. It will also extend the battery life to a large extent by minimizing background activity in the apps that are not used very frequently.
The Android O also comes with support for Android Instant apps, which helps you to teleport directly into new apps directly from the browser without any installation. Meanwhile, Oreo will also ship with 60 new emoji, which includes a t-rex, fairy, mind blown and wizard smiley.
During the launch event, Google disclosed that Android O is currently available via Google’s Android Open Source Project. The new platform will be pushed to Pixel and Nexus 5X/6P since they have entered the mobile carrier testing process. The new version will also be available for Pixel C and Nexus Player handsets.
Google also added that the product team is working in close partnership with manufacturers such as HMD, Essential, HTC, LG, Huawei, Samsung, Motorola to integrate Android O into their new and existing platforms. Moreover, smartphones enrolled in the Android Beta Program will also be eligible to receive the final version of Android O.
