Android O’s Latest Update and What it Has to Offer

Android O most likely will not be the best thing to ever come out of the software industry, but, regardless, it still has enough cool features to warrant some attention towards it.

Still in its development stage, it has however released a new preview update that brings some new changes and features. Some are just small tweaks, but together they make the Android O a much more pleasurable experience. The Beta Program is still available for users of the Pixel and Nexus devices, so you can try it out if you want to.

Support for the Picture-in-picture video feature

The picture-in-picture video has received some proper support. While other companies, such as Samsung, have added the feature for their own devices, they are normally quite limited in their scope. But with Google’s help, it might end up being more widely compatible as time and patches progress.

Of the smaller changes patched in, we can see that now notifications for Snooze can be postponed for later dates. We can also see now that notification channels allow devs to tweak the categories of notifications for their applications. One way they can use it, is to choose specific topics to notify you about. You can also select various colors for these notifications to better increase visibility.

Performance improvements

Normal to every Android update, improvements have been done to overall performance in the shape of faster booting time, particularly in the Pixel line where you can now boot-up two times faster on the O when compared to the Nougat.

A nice little addition is the new ‘Background execution limits’. This will permit Google to reduce the number of background apps that are hogging your system without your permission. This is made in an attempt to enhance performance, while also not killing off developer tasks.
