The latest version of Android is officially here, and it’s called Android Oreo, as most people expected. The use of an existing brand makes sense for Google here — there aren’t a ton of good “O” dessert foods out there, and Oreos are pretty much as universally beloved as a cookie can be.
At a press event in New York City, which coincided with the total solar eclipse in the United States, Google unveiled a superhero-themed statue of an Android Oreo mascot with capes.
Along with the name, Google also announced that Android Oreo is available today via Google’s Android Open Source Project. The Over The Air(OTA) will be available for Pixel Devices and then followed by others.
What’s new in Android 8.0 Oreo?
Oreo will bring a number of behind-the-scenes changes like background limits for apps to improve battery life, Bluetooth audio improvements, Google Play Protect to help on the security front, and other important changes in vital system behavior for apps built for Oreo. Android Oreo will also bring faster boot speeds (up to twice as fast on the Pixel), a much better Autofill implementation, plus support for Android Instant Apps.
There are also some user-facing additions such as adaptive notification dots, wider support for picture-in-picture mode, over 60 new emoji, a new look for media notifications and the quick settings menu, a redesigned settings menu, adaptive icons, notification channels.
