According to reports, Android O will be a substantial update that will bring over a bunch of new features. Just as an example, Android 8.0 will completely change Android smartphones multi-tasking capabilities since it will feature a new picture-in-picture mode. Announced shortly after the solar eclipse passed over New York City, Android 8.0 Oreo brings to an end months of speculation about just what Google would call its new "Android O" OS. It should also start pushing out OTA updates for at least the Pixel and Pixel XL, with updates for older Google devices happening the day of the event or shortly after.
Chrome's autofill feature in Android O aims to make it easy to set up a new device and synchronize passwords.
The features also include, picture-in-picture support, auto-fill support for individual apps, smart text selection that let Android recognize entities like addresses, URLs, telephone numbers, and email addresses to make the copy/paste experience better.
In a post on the Android website, Google wrote: "On August 21st, a solar eclipse will sweep across the entire United States for the first time since 1918". There'll be picture-in-picture support, along with notification dots to show what's new in apps, for instance.
Reports say shell hits Syrian fair
The fair is hosting firms from 23 countries that have maintained diplomatic relations with Damascus throughout the conflict. Mr Assad said that hardly a week passes without an attack in the West, referring to assaults carried out by IS supporters.
Still, Google hasn't confirmed that the "O" in Android O stands for "Oreo", so this name slip must still be considered a rumor for now. However, through this new feature, such clickbait systems will no longer work, as users will get to see a short version of what the video actually contains without playing it. The feature is now available on Android 6.0+ devices.
Google announced today that it would unveil Android O on Monday, 21st August 2017.
What comes as a complete plot twist, it looks like the next Android 8.0 version is not to be named the Oreo but instead will go with the name "Orellete".
Google has stepped up its ambitions in mobile hardware over the past few years with the introduction of the Pixel, the first handset designed by Google "inside and out".
