So Android Nougat is no more the latest delight from Google, the next version of Android codenamed “O” has been released for developers for testing purposes.

Android 8.0 “O” isn’t a huge upgrade over the Android 7.0, but still, it brings a lot of changes and improvements to enhance the overall user experience.

Here are some of the highlights of Android “0.”

  • Improved customized notifications

Google recently held its annual I/O keynote conference in which several major and minor announcements were made, the highlight of the event was the latest operating system the Android O.

Picture In Picture Mode

Android O comes with Picture in Picture mode which allows several applications such as Netflix, Youtube, etc. the functionality to play in the picture in picture mode when minimized.

More 3rd party apps will be able to take advantage of this feature in future.

Improved Notifications

The App badges have been upgraded, and now whenever there is a notification, the App icon will show tiny dots to inform the user about the received notification.

The notification can now also be viewed directly from home screen only by long pressing the App icon.

Smart Text Selection

Android O comes with Smart text selection feature which enables the user to select the relevant text such as Adress, Phone number, etc. by just double tapping over the whole text.
