The eighth version of the Android operating system was unveiled by Google about a week ago and users have been loving the features the said OS will be coming with.

Features of the Android 8.0 Oreo like the smart app notification dot, new Emojis, instant apps, smart auto fill, smart text selection, Picture-in-Picture (PIP) mode, Google Play Protect and many more are what users can’t wait to start using on their smartphones – either through an Over-the-Air (OTA) update or even purchase a new device.

Although Google had stated that it had no autonomy over who or what smartphone brand would feature the Android 8.0 Oreo first on their product, the company however hinted at which set of smartphone companies or brands could have the Android 8.0 Oreo OS first on their smartphones.

Some hours ago, TheLeaker released a more comprehensive and detailed lists of smartphone brands and their devices would be having the Android 8.0 Oreo OS. But just like Google, TheLeaker wasn’t able to pin-point which of the mobile brands will pioneer the Oreo OS or what device exactly will launch first with the Android 8.0.

Android Oreo

One of the annual announcements that comes from the stables of Google is the unveiling of a new version of the her Android Operating System. This OS announcement is also arguably one of the most anticipated news from Google all across the world.

And as it has been a long time tradition of the company to keep details about all upcoming OS secret, the Android O is no different as it also follows name hide-and-seek trend. However, the Android O can be safely to be that OS that exposes Google as a poor “hider” after all.

The Android O or Android Version 8.0 will be called the Android Oreo… and it was just too damn easy! Numerous Android expert, developers and even smartphone users had hinted that Google would most likely adopt the popular chocolate milk cookie, Oreo as the base name for her Android 8.0 OS and it happened. Guess we are all psychics after all.

Android Oreo

Yeah, that’s enough bragging about our psychic abilities, let’s now cut to the chase and list some of the features of the Android 8.0 Oreo

Android 8.0 Oreo features

Picture-in-Picture (PIP) mode

Android 8.0 Oreo Picture-in-Picture multitasking mode

Anyone that uses the YouTube app would be familiar with what Picture-in-Picture means. The PIP mode allows Android smartphone users operate two applications at the same time on the display. So, instead of minimizing an app to the background, the PIP mode is quite better as it allows you to monitor the activities of two applications simultaneously.

The PIP mode should not be mistaken for the Split-screen mode native to the Android 7.0 Nougat. They are different features in entirety.

New Emojis

The Android O also packs along new native set of livelier and fun emoji to bring a whole new experience to texting and new feel to the OS entirely.

App Notification Dot

On the Android 8.0, applications on the home screen and app tray will now have its individual notification dot to alert users of new stuff, update, message or information within the app. Just the same way instant messaging apps display notifications on their logo. The difference here is, all applications will have a tiny notification dot as soon as there is an update within the app.

Instant Apps

Although this is a feature that Android users running previous versions (Lollipop and above) have been enjoying, it however launched officially with the Android 8.0 Oreo.

The Instant App feature confers users with the ability to use compatible applications without having to install them on their devices. Users cam simply run the app through the Google Chrome browser and it will function like a stand-alone app.

Smart Auto-fill

Google put in a lot of work on the Android i.0 Oreo OS and the smart auto-fill feature is a proof of magnitude of work imputed.

Your login credentials from your favorite applications are stored by Google and when you need to login again, it automatically inputs them and logs you in like you were logged in before. Watch the demo below for a clearer picture.

Reasons why you should update your Android smartphone to the Nougat OS

0

The Android Nougat operating system is Google’s latest OS for smartphones that run on the Android platform. The Android Nougat OS was officially released to several smartphones on August 22, 2016 (exactly a year old today). The first set of devices / smartphones to receive the Nougat update include the Google Nexus 5X, Google Nexus 6, Google Nexus 6P, Google Pixel C, General Mobile 4G and many others.

The Android Nougat was first launched as the version 7.0 in August 2016, the version 7.1.1 was released as in the form of an update approximately 4 months later (December 5, 2016). The latest version of the OS is the version 7.1.2 that was launched and released this year (June 2017).

Every previously released update of the Nougat OS possesses its own share of unique features and capabilities. Why people do not want to utilize this features of the Nougat OS is something that is difficult to fathom. Because as at 2 months ago (June 2017), statistics had it that only 10% of the Google Play Store visitors had the Android Nougat operating system running on their devices. This definitely does not speak well of the acceptance of the Nougat OS.

While there could be many reasons why smartphones users do not want to update their OS to the latest Android Nougat, we believe that the ignorance of the numerous benefits and improvements of the Android Nougat OS is a major contributing factor to the low acceptance and usage.

This is why this post was concocted – to highlight the numerous benefits of the Nougat OS in a bid to increase usage of the OS and also for knowledge acquisition purposes.

Let’s have a peek at the improved features of Android Nougat OS. Shall we?

Features of Android Nougat OS

Split-screen display

On the Android Nougat Operating system, users have the liberty to runs to apps and display them on the screen at the same time. In simple terms, this split-screen feature basically allows two different application occupy equally halves (length of occupancy is adjustable) of the screen.

In furtherance, hidden somewhere in the device settings is a “multi-window” option that allows users run not just two, but multiple applications all at once on the device display. However, you may not find the multi-window option in all Nougat smartphones because the feature is still in the experimental phase. Hopefully, it should be featured in the upcoming Android O.

Doze mode for improved battery life

The Doze mode helps to prolong battery life and device usage time. And how does it make this happen? Simple. The Doze mode in Android Nougat is automatically activated as soon as your device screen goes off, certain processes likewise go to sleep – they doze off! And subsequently, saves battery life!

Although the Doze mode was introduced in the Android Marshmallow OS, the Nougat doze mode is unique and improved in that physical motion of your device does not interfere or interrupt the process of dozing, unlike the Android Marshmallow.

Overhauled Notification tray

The notification tray of the Nougat OS has been completely overhauled to a more refined look and minimalistic interface; simple and plain.

When there are more than one notification, you’d notice that there are virtually no space between each notification and depending on the app notification, you can directly reply to notifications of some apps without having to open or launch the app itself.

Search button in Settings menu

When you launch your device’s settings, you would notice a search buttons at the top right corner. Just like the search button found in the file manager, the settings search button helps to navigate the settings menu faster and ensures easy access whatever it is you want to modify on your smartphone.

Quick app boot

The Android Nougat has been structured in a way that applications now launch quicker than before. As soon as your device is launched, apps boots immediately; even before you unlock your device.

Faster system update

System updates on Android Nougat smartphones will run faster and apps will optimize the update easily too. Also, update size will be relatively smaller which in turn translates to faster update time. This is one of the features of Android Nougat OS I particularly love.

Improved Data Saver

The Android Nougat OS was designed by Google in a way that prevents applications from running in the background on mobile data unless you are on WiFi network. This is a good one as background data has been known to zap users internet data.

Are you now willing to migrate to the Android Nougat OS? Let’s hear you in the comments.
