I’ve got to say, google really knows how to launch products in style. The Latest Android version is finally here, and it has been called Android Oreo as most people had suspected. Including me of course. Google revealed this name coincidentally on the solar eclipse in New York via a live stream.
If you have used Android for some time, you should now be knowing that Google names Android releases after sweet desserts like Cupcake, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow and previously Nougat.
Android O had to be Oreo precisely because there aren’t many choices named after that letter.
So enough food chit chat. Android Oreo is most likely to come packed with speed and memory improvements just as any update would do. Google changes the entire operation of the system which eventually boosted the Pixel Smartphone start times by a whopping 100 percent. It will also improve efficiency through the use of system resources among apps and background tasks.
There are more functions like picture-in-picture which we talked about earlier. It essentially allows you to have a video app play a video on top of other tasks for both phones and tablets. Instant apps, Notification Dots, Auto Fill for apps and many more.
Android Oreo will be packed with some pretty badass security features because, we are in 2017 and everything needs air tight security. So we shall see features like remote location, locking and wiping with Find My Device and Google Play Protect that scans and automatically deletes malicious apps when detected on a daily basis.
That’s not all, Google will be updating its entire emoji set. You have probably seen Emoji Translators, right. Emojis are now a primary language for the millennial users.
Android Oreo will be available to the Pixel and Nexus 5X and 6P soon. Anyone on the developer preview will be updated to the final version. The Pixel C and Nexus Player are next in line for the office updates, other devices will follow in closely.
