Android 8.0 Oreo Officially Announced By Google

The successor of Android Nougat, which now runs on more than 10% of Android devices, is finally out in the bakery after a year’s wait. What is its name? Well, it’s Android Oreo. The layer of suspense regarding the name, which was unveiled just now at Eclipse 2017, was already recently thinned after an accidental leak appeared on Google Plus.

Various developer editions and Google I/O announcements have already highlighted the major features that are a part of Android 8.0 Oreo. These new features include:

  • Notifications Channels
  • Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode
  • LDAC Bluetooth audio codec support
  • Adaptive icons
  • Notification Dots for icons
  • Smart text selection
  • New Autofill APIs
  • WiFi Aware support to improve communication with nearby WiFi devices

Now, as it’s the case with Android launches usually, Oreo will also land first on Google made devices like Pixel, Pixel XL, and others. The new Android would reach other devices in the future. But, considering the tortoise-like adoption rate of Nougat, the chances are less likely it would happen in the adjacent months.
