Android 8.0 Oreo has just been introduced by Google. We will tell you all the news that brings us to the latest version of the mobile operating system.
Was with Android 5.0 Lollipop when the game was on the name of the Android version. Google, on the presentation of version 5.0 we are left simply with a letter: “L”. There was a lot of confusion about what name would be and that is free advertising and a great way to make eco a product that is going to release. Finally, we saw that we would end up calling Lollipop.
The same thing happened with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Android 7.0 Nougat: Google wanted to play a bit with us at the time of putting a name to the system. And with Android, Or have repeated the same thing they did with Android 4.4 KitKat: put a name of cookie famous. At the end Android 8.0 is Oreo, the famous biscuit stuffed with chocolate.
From the Google I/O they knew the first letter but he did not know the name that would have at the end. There was some indication that it would be this name because of the publicity that was made of the eclipse of the Sun today, and a photo leaked by Evan Blass , who also anticipated. But it has already been announced finally Android 8.0 Oreo, the eighth version of the operating system of Google.
Little new you can count on Android 8.0 due to your program of betas until today.We know the new function for applications executed in the form of floating window, the new icons, the Notification of Dots and the Notification Channels. Many new improvements that are intended to make Android an operating system more complete.
What mobile will have Android 8.0 Oreo?
In the absence of manufacturers to deploy the new version of Android to their phones, the devices that will first are the own Google. Will be able to update: Pixel, Pixel, XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus, 5X, Pixel C, and Nexus Player.
If you are in the program of betas you will be able to upgrade to this latest version via an update. Otherwise, you can always download the factory image and install it by yourselves. It is really easy to do, but keep in mind you’ll lose everything stored.
Will not the day of the launch, but yes that will receive Android 8.0 Oreo mobile and range Nokia 3 to Nokia 6, Asus Zenfone 3, the latest models of Sony and OnePlus 3 and 3T. Once it is present, we’ll see what manufacturers also advertise what mobile updated.
Android Oreo better at managing your notifications
Google knows that we use a lot of our smartphone throughout the day. We have a huge amount of notifications, and many are the times that collapses the notifications center. Several applications seem to agree to send alerts and that means there is times you don’t see something important.
Into Android 8.0 Oreo aims to end this with the Notification Channels, and Notification Dots. These two new functions they want to help you have a better management of the notifications that you receive. This is what you get from the concentration of a certain type of notifications in channels and allowing you to see notifications from a single app with a long press on the icon.
The Notification Channels the grouped and the Notification Dots the individualized
The Notification Channels is part of the seamless experience that wants to give Google Android 8.0. The development tools for this new version of Android allows you to tag and categorize notifications for your app to meet all of them in a same card in the notifications center.
On the other hand, the Notification Dots is a way more individual to show notifications. Now, next to the icon appears to us a point that indicates that we have notifications for that application. To view the notifications from that app, and not the rest as in the center of notifications, we’ll have to hold down on the icon. We will appear a floating window where we can see the notification and interact with it.
Into Android 8.0 you want the user to have an intuitive experience when using their smartphone. Do you want to see all notifications? For that you have a notification center. Do you want to see notifications for a single application? As accessed through its own icon. We’ll see if the developers give it a good use of these two tools and we don’t have to wait a year to see something decent.
Floating windows: a part of the new fluidity
The seamless experience that we highlighted in Android 8.0 are not only the notifications, but the floating windows arrive, finally, natively, Android. Google tells us that if we are a video on Youtube and want to reply to a mail, why do we have to stop seeing what we are seeing? Therefore, has now included the feature to play content in floating window.
We will see if this is not only in YouTube and comes to other platforms such as Twitch, Vimeo or VOD services such as Netflix or HBO. Would be nice not to have to pause the chapter that we’re looking to reply to a WhatsApp. Although now with quick responses Android 7.0 this problem is more mild. But when you send many messages is already more complicated.
Safety and battery management, improvements in both
With each new version of Android is released, Google makes improvements in these two aspects. This is because for the average user there are two things that will matter a lot. Want that your device is safe from unwelcome eyes and stamina as much as possible. The safety and the battery always have your serving of improvement in each version of Android.
Google has been shown to blunt the applications that are running in the background, closing them down completely if it sees a high consumption of battery without being on screen. This will cause the wakelocks are less harmful in our day-to-day. Let’s see if in the day-to-day this is as effective as we have.
On the other hand, the security has also been strengthened in issues such as applications that are installed thanks to Play Protect and in the management API password for the ‘auto filled’. Google wants Android 8.0 will not write so many passwords. Whether we have stored in our Google account as on third-party applications like LastPass.
This is the most important that has Android 8.0 Oreo, and what it will do claim that users want a smartphone with that operating system. There are also other improvements more light that will be as we tested this new version of Android.
Do you wish to open, they suck and get wet? Because Android 8.0 Oreo looks very tasty.
