Android Oreo Features:
Here are some of the features that are added by Google to improve the user experience.
- Speed: Google has promised to that the Android Oreo is Two times faster than that of previous Android Nougat, which is expected to bring better user experience as speed had been always a major issue for all smartphone users.
- New Emoji: Android Oreo will have newly designed emoji in the latest Android version 8.0. It looks like Google has given good afford in introducing newly redesigned emoji to all the Oreo users.
- Picture-in-Picture: The shouted feature of Android Oreo, called picture-in-picture mode allows you to play any video in a floating window over the other active apps. This feature, however, tried implementing on the Smartphones since years by manufacturers like LG and Samsung. Now, that, all the Smartphone that bears Android 8 is going to enjoy the feature.
- Battery Life: The battery life has been always a big concern for all the smartphone users, and quite irritated with it. It is observed that most of the smartphone users carry USB charger along with them to charge the phone while going out of the home. The new Android 8.0 will notify the users if there are any background activities going on, it also has a special optimization which will restrict background activities saving the battery life.

- App Notification: Google has introduced yet another new feature in the Orea that is the App Notification, dot will appear on the icon of the app which on tapping will expand to show the recent activities.
Certainly, we are going to taste few unique features we never familiar of in Android. While keeping it clean and more reliable, Android also seemed to be leaning towards more restrictions following Apple iOS’s footsteps. We have got a slight view of this activity in the last two Android versions (Marshmallow and Nougat) as well.
We are looking forward how users across the globe are going to respond to this approach of Google.
