Get Ready for Android 8.0 Oreo? Here is Android 8.0 Oreo Review
The public version of Android 8.0 – Android Oreo has released on 21 August during the solar eclipse. And immediately, the system is pushed to support some Android devices, including Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel C, Nexus Player. If you are not the user of these types of phone, don’t worry, the update will come very soon as well.
It is a general idea that the update of software always stands for the optimization. This idea is commonly true and Android 8.0 is a speaking witness. If you do not believe that, you can see the proofs below.
Comparing with Android 7.0, Oreo has made a lot of changes to be more user friendly. For instance, the start-up speed has improved dramatically and cruising power of the battery will be stronger because the applications that are not used would go into sleep mode to reduce the battery consumption. Besides, Android Oreo supports Wi-fi aware. That means Android device which supports Android 8.0 is able to find other devices in the vicinity as well as to create a bi-directional Wi-Fi Aware network connection. In addition, 60 new emoji are employed in the chatting software to make the conversation more interesting. Except these changes, this system also has other useful variations and I will choose five of them to talk about.
1. Picture-in-Picture Mode
Actually, Picture-in-Picture mod was already applied in Android TV while Android phone do not supports this mode. However, for the users who are fond of watching TV on their mobile phone, it is really a bother that they have to wait for a long advertisement to start a new video. Hence, to improve the quality of user experience, the new system enables this function on the phone now. Under this mode, you can watch one program which is displayed on the full screen while one or more other programs are displayed in inset windows. Therefore, you need not to wait for another to start or advertisements to finish. This must be the lightspot of the system to attract more customers.
2. Autofill Framework
Autofill is designed to fill in forms for making the login process more expedient and speedily. For example, you can remember the landing account and password when you first get into your Gmail. Then you will find that they are filled out automatically next time. To achieve this goal, you can go to Settings> System> Language & input> Advanced> Input assistance> Autofill service. With this new function, completing forms and passwords is just a mere trifle.
3. Better Understand Users
Why do we say that Oreo is capable of better understanding users? The reason is that it can select the right application for users in line accordance with their preferences. Let me give you an example. If you take a photo of a receipt, Android Oreo may suggest an expense-tracking application for you. It means that you will get your target programs without spending too much time in searching them. This function would be timesaving and humanized.
4. Free up Storage Per Allocated Quota
At present, the internal storage is bigger and bigger on Android device, but it still cannot meet users’ requirements. And it becomes a trouble that disturbs lots of Android users. To solve this problem, Oreo helps find out the less important cached data to delete. It implements this process by analyzing the app disk space quota. That is, when it is time to free up disk space, the system will begin by moving cached files from under-performing applications according to allocated amount. On the other hand, the applications that are frequently used will keep their cached data. Hence, you can clean up the storage space more quickly and selectively.
5. Changes in Notification
There are three main variations on Notification. The first one is the handling of notification shade. The improvements of notification shade are visual and utility. With Android 8.0, the background of the media control will alter color on the grounds of the album artwork and the color also fades into the actual album artwork. The second improvement is adding notification dots. The introduction of notification dots will enable you to see the dots appear on the home screen and app drawer when you have unread notifications for that application. If you want to see the notification, just long press on the app icon. And the last one is the forms of notification channels. Android Oreo creates a notification channel for each different type of notification that an application can send so users need not to combat with vast pending notifications any more.
These are major changes of Android Oreo. If you have already gotten the latest update, you can learn to make full use of the software to improve your device. If you are waiting for the latest version, you can know something about it in advance and get ready for it.
