The first thing you will notice about Android Oreo is that its faster; Google says the startup time has been halved and that background activity has been further reduced for a simpler experience.
One of my favorite Oreo stuff is that the phone can automatically re-enable Wi-Fi when you get closer to one of your trusted networks.
Multitasking is very fast and the split-screen mode has worked well in many applications. However, many of the benefits of these features depend on how developers make their applications compatible with newer versions of Android. For now, anyway, Oreo has started well.
Play Video On Working Screen
Despite what experts say about the disadvantages of multitasking, everyone does. And theres no better way to do two things at once than keep an eye on a YouTube video while you email this customer for the fourth time they have to reschedule a meeting.
You can move the video around the screen as desired, then send the video by pushing it down the screen. This feature will be especially welcome on tablets, so you can better use this extra screen.
Google also took inspiration from the Apple iOS in the form of what Google calls the notification of points. When you have an application with a notification, you will now see a colored dot at the top of the icon. When you touch and hold the icon, you will see the contents of the notification and you can delete it.
This deduces the notification center from Android, which always places a notification at the top of the screen. As a result, this is the only feature of Oreo that I do not find a real update. Your phone can quickly be cluttered in the same way that numbered icons can invade an iPhone screen. If it is not your taste, you can turn it off in the settings.
One of my favorite Oreo stuff is that the phone can automatically re-enable Wi-Fi when you get closer to one of your reliable networks. This is a smart feature that will save you battery life and prevent you from constantly turning on and off Wi-Fi on your phone.
The smarter Wi-Fi is one of those seemingly small features that can make a big difference by eliminating a major point of pain in everyday use.
Cut And Paste
One of the most annoying things to try to remove on a mobile device is to cut and paste text. Even on large phones, like the Galaxy S8 +, your fingers fagots can make text striking a challenge.
Multitasking is very fast and the split-screen mode has worked well in many applications.
Android Oreo wants to solve this problem by infusing machine-based learning into the process. When you highlight the text, the camera suggests specific actions based on the content. For example, if you highlight an address, youll see a choice to open that location in Google Maps. Lets say I highlight an address in an email; Oreo is smart enough to give me the option to remove a card from that address, which saved me from unnecessary faucets.
Unfortunately, you still can not zoom in on text, like iOS, allows you to do so, but improving smart focus should at least add intelligence when you need to copy, paste or interact with text .
Settings that you can actually navigate
When Android Nougat made its debut last year, it brought a redesigned settings menu that made it easier to find your way.
Oreo continues to streamline things in the settings. Gone is the pull-down menu, and the different sections are ranked more directly. There is also a search function, which is often the best way to find what you need. As for Nougat, the Oreo setup menu will ask you for occasional tools that you will want to try.
Most people are now aware of the potential risks of sleep posed by spending hours and hours watching a smart phone. The Night Light mode made its debut in the Nougat, but now its better in Oreo, with a sliding bar so you can change the hue of the light.
As with the Nougat, you can schedule hours for Night Light to appear so that you do not hold back during the night.
Tweak application icons
Since the deployment of the developer version of Android Oreo earlier this year, Google has encouraged developers to make their icons flexible, to use in different screen sizes. With some launchers, you can change the size and shape of the icons without being erased or too pixelated.
Android, sometimes unfairly, masturbates to have a malware problem. Google has attacked unfair applications and other elements of the security issue, and the last iteration is Google Play Protect.
The auto-fill feature will make your life extremely simple when typing Web forms or filling passwords.
This feature, which will also be plugged into non-Oreo devices, will analyze applications on your phone to ensure that they are not protected against malicious software. To make sure the feature is enabled, go to Settings> Google> Security> Google Play Protect. Your phone will then perform the work behind the application verification scenes on your device.
With the new automatic sleep feature of Android Oreo, password managers are finally more deeply integrated with Android.
The auto-fill feature will make your life extremely simple when typing Web forms or filling passwords. The main mode of transport is that the Android system will do much more work on the back-end, so your favorite password manager will pay your passwords to the order.
Who can get Android Oreo
Oreo is currently deployed on Google Pixel and Nexus 6P / 5X. The operating system was also launched on the Android Open Source project, which manufacturers use to create Oreo on their own devices.
The notification points are the only feature of Oreo that I do not find an actual upgrade.
We have also worked closely with our partners and by the end of this year, hardware manufacturers such as Essential, General Mobile, HMD Global Home from Nokia, Huawei, HTC, Kyocera, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp and Sony are programmed to launch or upgrade devices on Android 8.0 Oreo.
This indicates that Google has been working behind the scenes, which could help manufacturers to help them prepare their devices for Oreo. With Samsung, Motorola, LG and other manufacturers having delivered their headlights for the year (Google will soon reveal a successor of Pixel), a software update would probably be a good treat.
