Smartphone Android – Google has announced Orea as the name for the operating system (OS) Android 8.0 through live streaming in New York, United States, on Monday (21/08/2017) afternoon local time. Android Oreo is now available for testing or is in the developer preview stage.
Thanks to the developer preview stage, some of Andorid Oreo’s features can be tried. Indeed not all judi poker users can try Oreo, but the ranks of Android devices will definitely get an update to the OS this year.
Well if you are curious about Android Oreo, there are three important features that are quite interesting.
Here are a brief review of these three features as reported by Forbes, Tuesday (22/08/2017).
1. Background Limits
Android 8.0 will change the background process (background), which means it will change the workings of some applications. This change makes battery life a better one.
In addition, Android 8.0 will also identify applications that run in background services and have nothing to do with what users are doing on their phones. This feature, therefore, may have no effect on apps like music services running in the background. Possible impacts on apps like Snapchat in the background are feeds that will not be refreshed (updated).
In general, Oreo is smart enough not to access such applications. Thanks to this feature, Android Orea uses less power, thus making battery quality better.
2. Autofill API
Some people often forget their passwords, but it is necessary to keep accounts secure while surfing in cyberspace. A number of password manager apps that are on Android and are expected to help users, in fact not quite convenient to use.
Through the presence of Android 8.0, applications can register as autofill providers with a system that can facilitate users to login. Once the user selects the autofill provider in the language and input settings, Android will request the login details of the app, whenever required.
The system can also verify with a fingerprint scanner or secure unlock method, before loading account data. A number of popular password managers already have these features including Dashlane, LastPass and 1Password.
3. Picture-in-Picture mode
Android 8.0 users will be able to watch videos while doing other activities with their devices. This can be done thanks to the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode feature.
This feature was originally developed as part of Nougat, but only available on Android TV devices. But now can also be enjoyed on mobile phones and tablets. For the record, the application used must already support the PiP video. Some of which already support PiP videos are Chrome, YouTube and VLC.
To use it, the user must first start a video in full-screen mode and tap the “Home” button. Then the video size will decrease and can continue to watch while accessing other services such as calendar.
These three features are a simple example of some of the things that the sweet guy of Oreo has to offer. Nexus and Pixel will receive an update to Oreo in the near future, while the other device is a few months away.
