Google's New Android OS to Be Unveiled Monday: Here's What to Expect

Google's New Android OS to Be Unveiled Monday: Here's What to Expect

It has been in developer preview since May, with Google rolling out a release candidate in August. Search giant Google has announced that it will reveal the name of the next Android OS and showcase some of its new features at an event on August 21 in NY.

The version is first expected to roll out on Google's own devices such as Pixel and Nexus and later on to other Android-run device including Samsung and Nokia.

Adding to the already existing enthusiasm over the solar eclipse and the release of Android O, Evan Blass has teased a new image with the Android bot wearing an Oreo top. Unlike with the iPhone, where new updates are rolled out universally to all supported devices (typically going back at least four years), new versions of Android often have to crawl through the gauntlet of manufacturer and carrier verification before landing on your phone. Either when Android O releases or what on earth Google will have calling the OS when the timer concludes on 2:40 pm EST on the 21. Google usually reveals its mascot the same day that it launches the latest Android version.

(PiP) mode - Picture in Picture - This feature allows users to use another app while watching the videos. With the assistant, you can go completely hands-free on your phone, which makes it an interesting feature to have today.

Throw in more than 60 new emoji, fingerprint scanner gesture support, customizable lock screen shortcuts, and better battery and power management, and you can see why Android users have been excited. Visit the original website of android.com and check the countdown of the Android O name launch.

People continue to search through tons of mud and debris amid the threat of further mudslides. "My body is paining me", she said. China has pledged $1m, Togo has donated $500,000, and Israel and several West African nations have contributed food and cash.

We'll also hopefully learn more about Android's newer, better notification system. This will let users view the count without opening the app. Users will also get the option to turn off the notification badges for apps from the Settings app.

"On 21 August, a solar eclipse will sweep across the entire United States for the first time since 1918".

"Google's challenge with new versions of Android is that it's only immediately available to a small number of smartphone users", said Ian Fogg, of IHS Markit consultancy.

Other than that, Android O will also host a smarter text selection.

Google and Oreo's maker, Mondelez, referred to their deal as a partnership, rather than a sponsorship, as no money was exchanged. Most importantly, Android 8.0 brings Project Treble to new devices, a modularization of the OS away from the hardware.
