Android O Features, Specifications & How To Donwload

Let's take a peek into some new features of the Android O. Oreo maybe?

Android O will be unveiled at Google I/O conference. This basically translates to the fact that the app icon would keep changing or updating itself based on the notification that has been received on the same. Limits will be applied in 3 main aspects: implicit broadcasts, background services and location updates. In Android O, Google further enhance the user experience with the notification center by introducing "app-defined categories for notification content" called "channels". You can even set and enable background colours for different sets of notifications.

Users will now be able to snooze notifications starting from Android O. When a notification appear, users have the option to snooze it and it will reappear at a later time.

In addition to battery life, Android O is expected to have simplified app notification settings and the ability to allow picture-in-picture display, so users can do things like respond to texts while watching videos in YouTube without having to close the video window. The feature was already available for Android TV and now it will be a part of the smartphones running Android O as well. Google is most likely to debut the preview during May this year, upon which we will be introduced new features along with the ones mentioned above.

The new operating system is also adding Wi-Fi Aware, to allow hardware with the software to connect to other devices without the need for connectivity between them through a Wi-Fi access point.
