The latest Android version – Android 8.0 – has just been officially announced by Google. Previously known as ‘’Android O’’, the operating system has now been granted the name Android Oreo – as suspected by most people. Google has a long tradition dating back to Android 1.5 (Also known as ‘’cupcake’’) of naming its operating systems after famous treats.

Interestingly enough, Google decided to announce its latest Android OS at the same time of the arrival of last week’s solar eclipse. This spectacular event has also been adapted within Google’s announcement video of the Android Oreo operating system.

 

 

Besides announcing the name, Google stated that Android Oreo is now available to the general public via Google’s Android Open Source Project. A fully functioning version of this latest Android operating system is expected to first arrive at the upcoming Nexus and Pixel smartphones. Keeping in mind that, at the moment, only 14% of all Android phones run on the previous OS – Android Nougat – it might take a while before your device supports Android 0.

As always, a new operating system brings along plenty of new and interesting features that have been designed to increase your user experience. With their latest OS, Google has summarized its new features in three words: faster, safer, and better.

Thanks to the major adjustments that Google has made, Android O can function up to 2 times faster as its predecessor. It furthermore treats you to smart app-control and limits the activities of Apps that are running in the background. Thanks to this, your Android phone will function better and faster while simultaneously using less battery.

Additionally, Android Oreo brings along Google Play Protect that will significantly increase your phone’s security and protects it against malware. This security system is constantly active and scans on a daily basis more than 50 billion Apps that are listed in the Play Store but also on your own smartphone. Thanks to this, you can be guaranteed that all the Apps on your phone work without any trouble. Not only does this feature focus on the performance of your phone, it also aims to protect your privacy in a more secure manner.

Another useful new Android 8 feature worth mentioning is Picture-in-Picture. This allows you to efficiently do two things at the same time – significantly increasing the multitasking capabilities of your Android phone. From now on, you’ll be able to engage in a video call while checking your agenda, or browse the web while watching a movie.

Other new Android 8 features include:

  • Smart management of App notifications
  • Smart copy-and-paste
  • Limiting Apps ran in the back ground – increasing your phone’s speed and performance
  • Instant Apps – A feature that lets some services use parts of their Android Apps even if you have not installed it on your phone
  • Adaptive App Icons – App Icons will adapt automatically to your UI and the appearance of App icons may differ depending on the phone you are using
  • Redesigned emoticons more similar to the ones found on Apple’s iOS

Finally, it’s worth mentioning that Google has made the architecture of the App simpler. This makes it easier for phone manufacturers to adopt changes to the OS in order to make it fit perfectly on their Android device. Throughout the past, we have seen that the roll-out of a new Android operating system can be a slow process. This is because it typically has to be adapted and approved by each smartphone manufacturer and mobile operator. Therefore, it can take months before the latest Android OS starts to reach a significant number of users. With Android 8, however, this is about to change.

Making the operating system easier to change and adapt for smartphone producers is, perhaps, the most significant change Android Oreo brings along.
