Google has started to roll out Android 8.1 Oreo for the Pixel and Pixel 2 flagship smartphones. The main attraction of the update is the display of the quality of the Internet connectivity with the help of WiFi Speed labels. After the installation of the update, your Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones will display whether the speed is Slow, Ok, Fast or Very fast.
Commenting on the development, Pixel user community manager Orrin disclosed that over the next few days or weeks, the company will officially rollout Android 8.1 Oreo to Pixel and Pixel 2 handsets. In addition to several new features such as WiFi Speed label, the update also comes with bug fixes and improvements related to performance and stability including several bug fixes.
Orrin added that the Slow factor in the Wi-Fi Speed label signifies 0 to 1 Mbps. While OK means 1 Mbps to 5 Mbps speeds, the Fast label reveals that the public network will have 5Mbps to 20 Mbps. If the speed is more than 20 Mbps, then the label is termed as Very Fast.
