Android 8.0 Oreo Developer Preview
This is the last developer preview that Google is going to roll out and it includes a bunch of interesting tweaks. While the previous update contained all the APIs, this one is more focused towards improving the operating system’s stability. Worth mentioning is that all of the important Android SDKs, Android Emulator and tools will receive additional updates during the upcoming days.
Google’s main goal was to enhance the operating system’s notification support, autofill and picture-in-picture support alongside other minor enhancements. Worth mentioning is that another great thing that this new update brings is that it optimizes operating system and app battery usage.
While this update might not be packed with innovative features it’s still very important to developers since they can test their apps and see how well they perform. Developers should try to keep in mind that Google advises them to download the latest version of Android Studio (IDE for writing Android apps).
