Android 8 Oreo – Operating System Basics

Google finally has released their latest and greatest eighth Android operating system. Many individuals on the Internet knew that Google would name their latest Android version Oreo. This was no secret.

However, most other details were not released until now. For what it is worth, Google has always named their Android versions after chocolate treats. I have no fucking idea why that is.

Anyways, Android 8.0 Oreo comes with picture in picture and automatic fill. Google claims Oreo is faster and more secure. Picture in Picture allows you to use two applications at once.

Android 8.0 Oreo includes notification dots. These dots allow you to get notifications from applications running in background. You just click on these dots to view any notification(s).

This version of Android includes over sixty new emoji icons. Android 8.0 Oreo comes with Google Play Protect built into this operating system. Google claims that Oreo boots twice as fast on a Google Pixel smart device.

Automatic fill allows you to save username and password information for quicker logins. This is optional by the way. Google expects large hardware manufacturers to begin rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo later this year.

This latest version of Android operating system, is supposed to limit applications activity, with applications that are being used less. Android 8.0 Oreo includes integrated printing support. You can place your notifications on snooze.

The code for Android 8.0 Oreo has been released to the public via the Android Open Source Project. Google Play Protect is supposed to scan your applications, making sure they are not nefarious.
