This Android Oreo Feature Could Fix a Huge Google Problem

Google Android O

At first blush, HTC's tweet yesterday stating that the HTC U11, HTC U Ultra and HTC 10 will be updated to Android 8.0 sounds like the company is going out on a limb with this announcement.

Officially named during Monday's coast-to-coast solar eclipse, Android Oreo is being rolled out via over-the-air updates to users with Pixel, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P smartphones, with the Pixel C and Nexus Player to see updates "over the next several weeks", according to Google. This method, however, has been put on hold by Google as there are apparently some issues, but it never hurts to try if the installation of the operating system upgrade proceeds.

Android Oreo comes with a raft of internal improvements, created to boost the performance of existing Google-backed devices. Google said Play Protect continuously scans the estimated 2 billion Android devices around the world, using machine learning to watch for unusual and questionable behavior in more than 50 billion apps and automatically removing problem applications. Google is yet to assign a developer to fix the battery related Android Oreo bugs. The latter, we hope, will include information on the timing of the Oreo updates. While all four Nokia Android phones will be getting Android 8.0, we can expect Moto's 2017 range of smartphones to receive it as well.

When launching the ZenFone 4 and ZenFone 4 Pro, Asus announced it will release Android Oreo update for the smartphones in this year's ZenFone 4 series as well as last year's ZenFone 3 series. The date is not cleared when OnePlus3, OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5 will get the Android 8 update. The Galaxy S7 series, along with Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition and Galaxy Tab S3 will also be updated to Android Oreo but later on.




For example, some of your group chats in a messaging app might have permission to buzz and light up your phone, while others just display a silent alert.

Extraordinary emojis: Android Oreo brings along a team of fully-redesigned emojis, with a superhero segment as well. If you have Nexus device and haven't joined the Beta program then you will have to wait for the final update.

Other Phones that will Get Android 8 update - Samsung Phones will also get Android 8 update.
