Android 8.0 will be android’s next version preceding Android 7.0 or Android Nougat. We know that android always names it’s Operating System by some food items. So what will be Android 8.0’s name? Well, Google has decided to name it’s next OS by Android O. That is Android Oreo. We hope it is not Oatmeal.
The Source Android Oreo:
Google put out a teaser on Google+ to promote the August 21 event. There, the Android O and its official name will be unveiled. The teaser video had a name ‘GoogleOreo_Teaser_0817_noDroids (1).mp4′. But, in an attempt to right the wrong, Google took down the teaser and uploaded it again renaming ‘OctopusTeaser.mp4′, which just made sure what we have all been speculating. Google’s decision to go with Oreo makes sense since the famous cookies are known worldwide.
Google will reveal this teaser at the launch event. With the name also comes the logo. The name ‘Oreo’ brings to mind the image of the dark brown colored biscuits. What about an Oreo half dipped in milk? That would be just awesome. Now, only Google knows what are they planning.
What could be the features?
Android 8.0 brings new features such as Notification Dots, Autofill, Smart text selection and Picture-In-Picture. Google has also said to improve the security and increased the booting speed in the new OS. Notification Dots show the notification of an app after a long press. A small notification bar pops up at the top right corner of the app and shows the notification of the particular app. The Autofill feature helps in filling forms inside an app. Smart Selection feature is a machine learning based features that select only important text to be copied.
The 21st August event will be held in New York City which coincides with the Solar Eclipse
