Android 8.0 Oreo was released by Google a few months back with wide expectations. The company recently released a developer preview version of the Android 8.1 with enhanced features. However, the version is available only for users who work with Google Pixel or Nexus handsets. If you have other smartphones, you are out of luck.
If you have access to Pixel or Nexus smartphones, you can download Android 8.1 Beta after registration. The latest discovery is that the update provides an ability to restore data from a Google account at a later stage if you had chosen to skip the relevant option during the initial setup process.
Henry Roggy reported on his Google+ account that he saw an option to restore all the apps from the Google drive backup even after performing a factory reset. As you can see from the below picture, there is an option to restore data from the Settings page. You need to select Finish Setup button.
The Android 8.1 Beta helps you to integrate Chrome and SMS including self-dimming navigation buttons. This option will be useful for users who would forget to restore data during the initial setup.Moreover, the integration of this feature helps Google Pixel users to get more from their smartphone.
We expect Google to release the final version of the Android 8.1 in December 2017 after gathering feedback from customers. The final version will have refined features, improvements and bug fixes.
