Android Oreo Is What Google Wants to Call Android O 8.0

In a ritualistic ceremony conducted while out of sight of the sun, Google officially named the eighth version of Android "Oreo" today.

Google's annual Android launch counts among both the most exciting and most teasing announcements the company makes.

Android Oreo was officially launched yesterday at an event in NY.

The new operating system Android O (8.0) will be presented to the public on August 21. It could also be a hint that the new Google Pixel phones are close to being announced, but in any case check back with us soon for more updates. Android's Settings app has also been completely overhauled so that the vast myriad of options isn't as overwhelming to new users, but also easier for experienced Android users to find what they're looking for. Google on Monday confirmed during the astrological event that Android 8.0 will indeed be known by the nickname Oreo. Of course, as per usual, it is available for no third-party devices on day one, and will roll out to Google's own Nexus and Pixel devices first.

For those not using Google Nexus or Pixel devices, it will be some time before the Android Oreo update starts rolling out. Lastly, if you don't feel like waiting, any device enrolled in the Android beta program will receive this update.

Snooze function: Android Oreo introduces a snooze function which helps you in prioritising alerts.

As it happens every year, Android Oreo update will arrive on a few smartphones as soon as the release happens. Android Oreo boasts a number of improvements over its predecessors, some of which are more exciting than others. "The world's favorite cookie is your new favorite Android release".

Android fans on-hand at Google's event today in NY already got a look at the cookies. It's also worth mentioning that the new feature is enabled by default, so you don't need to do anything to set it up.

The notification bar will get a new animation. There's also the Autofill framework, which will auto fill log-in for apps where users have granted permission. Most attention-getting, there's now a picture in picture mode, where you can run two apps at once. The new emojis include Mermaid, Fairy, Wizard, and Giraffe.
