5 Reveals about Android O Taken from Reddit

The new Reddit AMA featuring a few Android O developers revealed some interesting things for sure. Here are five of them that you might find useful in the future. Let’s begin, shall we?

  1. No Dark Mode, sorry

The Android O Reddit AMA shattered quite a few fan hearts, because it put an end to the rumors that Android O will come with Dark mode. And while Google teased this feature intensively on previews for both Android O and Android Nougat last year, it seems that it just can’t be delivered. And the reason for this failure is? It’s hard to theme it, apparently.

  1. No more lock-screen quick replies

Google teased the quick lock-screen replies ever since Android Nougat, but they never made it into the final version, and they won’t come to Android O either. The reason for this is obvious: it threatens user security to allow a device to accept replying to messages without having to unlock it first.

  1. No more blobs

Google’s blob-top emojis have had a long run, but they also look stupid and almost everyone low-key hated them from the get go. So now Google is finally dropping the blob emoji design and reverting back to the nice, round ones.

  1. Secret name

What the Reddit AMA didn’t tell us and we all wished it did is what the ‘O’ in the name stands for. There are a lot of theories going around, and the developers on the thread seem to have given the most ludicrious answers to throw us off track.

  1. Tablets are still important

Although Android O seems to cater mostly to smartphones, the Android devs on the Reddit AMA thread reassured everyone that the new OS has something for tablets as well.
