Oreo – Not just for your Taste buds anymore!

There has been a lot of hoopla for iOS 11 and the launch of iPhone 8 and iPhone X, and amidst all that, it almost feels like Oreo has drowned in a glass of milk! (Pun Intended). Well, we shall revive that for you in this article specifically for Android 8 – Oreo!

Android phones are the ones commonly used by most people around the world, and almost all the phones in the market. This has given a boost to App developers from all over to create innovative android Apps, and release them to the market.

“Powers, and Beyond” is how they are pitching the new version, and with the looks of it, it does seem pretty cool! With great features for users and developers alike, lets now have a quick look at some of our favourite additions that are a part of this yummy new release – Oreo!

Oreo is going to make your device twice as fast as it was. How? Well, they have increased the boot speed, making it 2 times faster, so as soon as you have powered up your mobile, you really don’t have to twiddle your thumbs.

Another issue most of us face is that of background processes that not only eat our internet, but also our battery. Well, worry not – Oreo is going to help minimize background activity of the Apps you don’t even use! Stealth Power, we say!

Notification Dots – something that iPhone users will be familiar with is now on Android. You will get a small notification on top of any App that will have one for you. It could be a new e-mail or a message on WhatsApp.

Another exciting new feature is that Google is now going to help you control the notification setup for each App individually. You can Snooze notifications for any App individually, instead of placing your mobile on silent!

Finally, we have super helpful Autofill API’s, while it has always been there due to third party Apps, it’s now been made easier by adding platform support to it.

We then have Adaptive Icons for Developers, this is enable cool and funky icons for all Apps they develop.

And at last, the most fun feature of all – an Addition of over 60 new Emojis! Yay!

So, while there were a few more additions, these are some of our picks. Let us know your favourite updates in the new release!
