Android 8.0 Oreo is official, starts rollout out to devices ars_ab.settitle(1141655)

Xiaomi And Google

It also notes that any devices that are enrolled in the Android Beta program will get updated to Android 8.0 Oreo as well with this final version.

To date, Google hasn't officially disclosed what the "O" in "Android O" stands for, while many believe it could be Oreo. Yes, finally, Google is releasing its much-anticipated and highly speculated Android update Android O, today along with The Great American Solar Eclipse. It will feature peer-to-peer payments, upgrades to Siri, new Live Photo effects and a way to block notifications while driving.

The Android-maker shared the file in a post made through their Google+ account. It's unclear right now, but something is happening when the timer concludes on 2:40pm EST/7.40pm BST on 21 August.

The leaked image that you can see above shows the Android mascot with the infamous Oreo cookie along with a cape and a bugdroid, which resembles a flying Superhero.

He went to Finland in 2016 and had since lived in an immigration centre in Turku , according to the Red Cross. German authorities were in close contact with their Finnish counterparts over the case, the ministry said.

Google is planning to live stream the event for the launch of its new operating system Android O (8.0) on total solar eclipse, i.e., on August 21st. Pixel and Nexus 5X/P phones have entered carrier testing, Google said, meaning that over-the-air software updates will be rolling out soon.

There's also a redesigned emoji set with more than 60 new graphics and improvements to reduce battery consumption.

Similar to notifications in Apple iPhones, Android O-powered smartphones too will now show the notification count in top corner of the app icon.

App Badges: Android O provides native support for app badges. It's similar to the autofill feature already enabled on Google Chrome and other web browsers. Even if you weren't one of the many making predictions, there's some good news if you're a Pixel or Pixel XL user. It means one can send an email while watching you tube video. However, through this new feature, such clickbait systems will no longer work, as users will get to see a short version of what the video actually contains without playing it.
