Using the Android O beta

#Android #Google #AndroidO #AndroidNougat #GoogleI/O #technology #mobile #newtech

Android O was one of the most awaited segments at Google I/O 2017. It was announced that users wanting to use the Android O platform can do it by enrolling themselves in the Android O beta. Also, you need to have a Google smartphone, such as Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel or Pixel XL.

There haven’t been major changes between Android Nougat and Android O UI, like the settings menu have been re-arranged and grouped together for similar functions. There is also an option to enable battery percentage on Android O, with larger font. It also groups battery consumption based on Apps, System, Services, etc.

Android O has a different toggle system, and it also allows video and chat apps to play picture in picture when minimised. You can even check the notification on an app by long pressing the app icon and also dismiss it by swiping.

It also includes Autofill with Google, Smart Text Selection and other features.

This is an interesting update. Google focused more on how people access and use the OS rather than upgrading things visually.
