After being leaked a couple of days back, Google has now officially released the first developer builds for the next major update to Android. Right from the very first official Android system Cupcake to the latest Nougat, Google has improved the usability and enhanced the user friendliness of the operating systems. In Android 7.0 and earlier, you can only block notifications for entire apps.
There's a new native API on board Android O that will allow apps to make use of high-performance, low-latency audio via streams.
Since more than half of requests for Google's search engine now come from smartphones, the Mountain View, California, company has adapted its services to smaller screens, touch keyboards and apps instead of websites. It's Android 7.1.2. While other phones have yet to receive the chunky update, most Google-branded devices are nearly ready for another round of update. Furthermore, Google has the tendency to release new hardware to go alongside the new Android OS. For example, technology-related notifications from a given app can be easily disabled while its news-related notifications continue to appear in the notification shade.More news: How To Watch The 2017 NCAA Tournament Streaming Online
One of the most noticeable user-facing changes is the introduction of a picture in picture (PIP) option - similar to an Apple iPad feature added in iOS 9 - which should make multitasking easier in some circumstances. Many users like to copy and paste their passwords into the appropriate fields on Android and other platforms.
Along with the announcement, a Developer Preview was made available in the form of factory images for supported devices, which are the same as those for Android 7.1.2 Nougat. With high resolution screens and streaming video, we'll take all the battery improvements we can get. Android O apps will need to enable a flag in their manifest and load bitmaps with an embedded wide color profile.
There's now a wide color gamut option for developers to better take advantage of the insane good screens on our phones, including AdobeRGB, Pro Photo RGB, DCI-P3, and more. It is believed to be named Android Oreo. This will bump the OS up to beta status and will probably get released to both developers and those in the Android Beta program.
