Taking a Look Inside Android Oreo

Taking a Look Inside Android Oreo

Ever since its announcement, Android’s latest operating system, 8.0 Oreo, has been making waves in the industry. So far, however, only select devices have the opportunity to use it. This doesn’t mean that you can’t take the opportunity to prepare for it, though. Here are some of the most important things to know about Android 8.0 Oreo, as well as Android 8.1. But first, let’s take a look at how much Android 8.0 is currently being used.

Android 8.0 Adoption Rates
As of April 16th, 2018, Android Oreo adoption (including both version 8.0 and 8.1) was up by about 400 percent since February.

What Android 8.0 Oreo Offers
Naturally, you’ll want to know why Oreo is all the rage among Android users. We’ll discuss some of the key new features that you can expect from this operating system.

    • Picture in Picture Mode - Android Nougat allowed users to have two applications open at once through the use of Multi-window. Oreo takes this a bit further by enabling one app with a small display to share the screen with something else.
    • Notification Dots - Android Oreo uses the same “badges” that previous themes provided, which will notify you regarding which apps are trying to contact you about something. You can long-press the icon to see the notification.
    • General Optimization and Improvement - A mobile operating system needs more tricks up its sleeve in order to get people to upgrade to it than just a couple of cool new features. Android 8.0 provides users with significant improvements in terms of security, device speed, and battery life--quality-of-life improvements that make for a better, more convenient experience. Android Oreo can also assign apps with permissions to assist users in specific instances.
