Like it or not, another Reasonable sweet is around the neighborhood. It’s the name given by Google to the latest operating software for Android flexible working system. Android 8.0 Oreo takes after Android 7.1.2 Nougat, and it continues with Google’s tradition of all together naming its Android Operating System after desserts. It’s the second type of Android to use a brand name. The last was Android KitKat in 2013.
Android 8.0, look like its predecessor. There are many new features, but they are all relatively minor. Still, with this new additions and improvements show us how much more mature Android is now, and they make version 8.0 an update you don’t want to miss.
As a note, Android Oreo was testing on Google Pixel. While all features can be similar with other Android 8.0 devices, there may be different color themes and layout settings. For example, Google has changed Pixel notification scroll into white color, while blue gray color remains on Nexus devices.
Let’s start with one of the most important changes in the operating system. The notification
indoor, which you swing down from the home screen, now shows the below date, and the setting
s gear icon has also been moved to the same lower panel.Improve the deterioration of the
notification and you will see display brightness slider, now at the top, with the quick
settings tile below. The very bottom settings are quick-edit editing icons, user icons,
and settings app access. It’s a minor, but it makes a welcoming change that makes it easy
for you to access these devices without reaching the top of the screen.
General information like weather or commute times from the Google app now take up less space (though they can expand).
Self-notification is more useful according to its new three features. First, and a personal favorite, you can schedule notifications. Gently swipe the notifications left or right as long as you see the gear and clock icon. Tap the clock and it will offer you to have the notification resurface in 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 2 hours, or 1 hour (default) For inbox zero folks like me, this is a godsend as it means not having to swipe away important notifications, while still clearing my notification tray.
Notification badge, or Dots, mimic iOS’ unread badge counters, and as the name suggests you’ll only see dots appear above an app or app folder with new notifications. These points use the color app, so they are not disturbed and do not ignore the location.
Tapping and pressing an app icon with a dot can be reported as a popup, unlike Apple’s 3D touch. Here, you can also find Apple Shortcuts, which was introduced in Android 7.1.1. Allows you to access specific tasks
in the app, and look and have changed slightly in Android 8.0.
