Android 8.0 Oreo is Here and These are Its Best Features
After many months of waiting, the public version of Android 8.0 Oreo finally started rolling out. This major operating system comes right in the nick of time since Apple is also getting ready to release iOS 11 and Google needs to stay ahead of the curve if it wants to give Apple serious competition. Nonetheless, Google’s own Nexus 6P and Pixel/Pixel XL have already received the operating system and we know everything about it. While we can’t know for sure when other flagship smartphones will receive Android 8.0 Oreo, we can be sure that it will arrive during the upcoming future. With that being said, here are the top three features that makes waiting for Android 8.0 Oreo worth while.
Calling people is something of the past since everybody texts now. Google knows that too well and this is why Android 8.0 Oreo brings 70 new emojis. These new emojis also include graphic updates to the older “blob” ones. In addition, Android 8.0 Oreo will improve your texting experience with new emojis such as a T-Rex, Dracula and even a vomit face.
Picture in Picture Mode
Smartphones have an endless number of uses since people can use them to hail down Ubers, text friends and media entertainment as an example. As its name implies, the new picture in picture mode will bring Android powered smartphone’s multitasking capabilities to the next level. For example, Android users will be able to search for a location on Google Maps while watching a YouTube video at the same time.
While the standard camera app stays the same, Google made sure to include some tweaks to it. Therefore, Android 8.0 Oreo will allow users to quickly switch between modes with just the tap of a finger and to use the quick zoom feature by simply double tapping on the display.
