Android 8.0 Oreo Officially Confirmed – Google Play Protect built-in With New Fixes

Google has finally decided to make an official announcement regarding its upcoming Android OS. Well, it seems that the Android 8.0 official name is “Oreo,” as many previous rumors were suggesting.

We have to mention that this is the second time in Android’s history when Google is making a commercial partnership with another company for naming its mobile operating system. The first time was for the Android 4.4 when “KitKat” was used, after Google teamed up with Nestle (the company that owns the KitKat brand).

The Android 8.0 Oreo’s code will be finally uploaded by Google engineers to the Android Open Source Project today and the software updates for the supported Pixel and Nexus devices will arrive sometime “soon.” We have to remind you that the final build will also be sent for the devices that are enrolled in the Android BETA Program.

The big search engine company has mentioned that by the end of 2017 devices from HMD Global, Huawei, HTC, Motorola, Samsung, Sony, General Mobile, Kyocera and LG will also be updated to the new Android 8.0 Oreo. At the same time, these companies will start releasing devices running on the new operating system sometime in the following months. Unfortunately, most devices will start receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update sometime in the second quarter of 2018.

The Android 8.0 Oreo comes with many new features such as: picture-in-picture support, redesigned emoji, Google Play Protect built-in, notification dots, faster boot speed, auto-fill system-wide, support for Android Instant Apps and more. As expected, more new options and features will be added to this new operating system in the following months.

What are your thoughts about the name of the new Android 8.0? Do you think that Google was able to find a better name for its upcoming Android OS version?
