Android 8.0 is here. Coming to Google and Nexus devices first.

Android just dropped the news that everyone has been
waiting for- the arrival of Android 8.0! The Android Oreo is the latest version
of the Android OS to run on Android enabled mobile devices. According to
Android, the Oreo is smarter, faster, more powerful and sweeter than ever. In a
tweet on Monday to announce the introduction of the latest version of the world’s
most popular mobile operating system, Android users around the world had their
appetite wet with a short video that highlighted the various features of the
new mobile OS in a manner that has never before been done.

The key features of the Android 8.0 include speed,
security, multitasking, longer battery life, more emojis and lots more. See
below for details on the various features of the Android Oreo:

Speed: The Android 8.0 is said to be 2x faster than
Android 7.0. The boot time as recorded using Google pixel initiates your
favourite tasks more quickly and is 2x faster when it is booting up compared to previous versions.
Background limit: Over the years, users have been
complaining about background activities on the Android OS. This has been an issue
escpecially when using the Sony Xperia phones. With the Android 8.0, background
activities in apps you use less are minimized to free up system resources,
making your device super fast and cooler.
Just like the Google Chrome, autofill will work with
you to remember your login details, enabling you get into your apps at the
speed of light!

Picture-in-Picture: This feature has got to be the
coolest of them all. It allows you run two apps at once. Imagine the power that
thrusts in your hands- the power to do much more!
Google play protect: Google has just taken security to
a whole new level with this feature. Can you imagine scanning over 50
billion applications per day? Even the once you are yet to install? Because
apps can get compromised to harm your device upon installation, Google play
protect ensures that apps on Playstore are scanned regularly to be sure they
are safe for downloads. Cool, isn’t it?
More Emojis: Beautifully redesigned and over 60 newly
created emojis are coming to Android 8.0, making it even easier and less
stressful to share how you feel. I am sure the ladies will like this one.
Roll out date: The Android Oreo will be rolled out in
phases soon, first to Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones, the Pixel C tablet, and
the Nexus 5X, 6P and Nexus Player. No specific date has been set for the roll-out.
