Google Starts To Bury Nougat With Android 8.0 ‘O’

Today, Google has released an Android O Developer Preview that is publicly available to download, according to a report by Phone Arena.

But, hold your horses – this version is specifically aimed at developers so Google warns that it’s “not intended for daily or consumer use” as it comes with “various stability and performance issues.”

The Android O Developer Preview can be installed on the Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel C, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, as well as the Nexus Player.

Although there is still much mystery behind the “O” moniker, the report reveals a couple of new features that this latest version of Android will bring.

This includes:-
Enhanced notification with “fine-grained control over different kinds of notification”
App background limits to save your battery
Picture in Picture display so you can watch a video while chatting or using any other apps
Adaptive icons
Wide-gamut colors for apps
Support for high-quality Bluetooth audio codecs

Well, seeing that this is a developers preview, we can expect to see a stable version of the latest update coming sometime in the later half of this year.
