Oreo or non-Oreo – that is the only remaining question here. For the reason that features that Android O will bring by using it, Google has announced. Including a great deal of small stuff, but also some real highlights.
In most detail, the innovations of Android O happen to be described elsewhere. However, since small details like an optically revised setting app are mentioned in this posting, advantages and drawbacks exclusively regarding the top features of the new Android version.
Android O with improved battery life
The probably most welcome change is probably what Google calls “background limits”. This implies a mechanical restriction of activities operating along without anyone’s knowledge and claim battery from the smartphone.
Thus, applications must give a valid reason for switching and operating in the background. This is required to cause a a lot better recharge time because that this energy consumption in standby is expected to fall drastically. However, developers must first adapt their apps.
Android O gets dormant key
Although Google has produced in the combination of latest features for Android O notifications, but by far the most important would be the “Snooze” button. This can be used to select notifications for 15, 30 or Sixty minutes. This should actually be suitable for every user in a few instances.
The one thing Android is obviously considered is fragmentation. In greater detail, Google has adopted with Android O. Specifically, this is a case of the belief that the manufacturer’s surfaces, or the launcher alternatives, which accompany them, sometimes attempt to push their particular style.
Inside the new Android version, it’s possible for developers in order to save their particular icons finally by a computerized adjustment. An application icon can have different variants, on get circular, square, rounded or completely arbitrary basic shapes.
Android O has window mode for videos
For regular users of mobile video playback Google has also implemented a good innovation in Android O. Plus in the longer term, apps like YouTube can play video content in a very floating window. Behind this, the currently open application can be employed with no problems.
Android O wants to avoid unnecessary typing
Our last highlight feature of Android O might be all happy again: Thanks to a different developer interface (API), online password managers etc can complete system-wide forms automatically. The person is no longer necessary to manually type the name, e-mail, and co.
