The newest Android operating system, Oreo 8.0, has several improvements upon older operating systems to make your Android phone even more convenient and easy to use. This operating system powers up two times faster than ever before, according to measurements of boot time on the Google Pixel. Along with this, Android restricts activity in apps that aren’t currently in use, helping conserve power. Stop worrying about losing charge with Oreo—it helps keep the programs you use from sucking the life out of your phone.
When enabled, new auto-fill functions help you log into apps faster by remembering your user information. You can sign into apps like Twitter with just a touch of the screen. App icons also now have notifications dots that allow users to read updates on social media without having to enter the app. For instance, you can see what’s new on Facebook without even opening your timeline. When you’re finished getting caught up, just swipe the notifications away.
This operating system also allows you to use two apps at once with the picture-in-picture function. So, you can browse the web while having a video conversation. Communication is also easier and more fun with the introduction of a newly redesigned set of emoji. With this operating system, there are 60 brand new emojis for expressing yourself!
Finally, Google Play Protect helps keep your device safe. It scans over 50 billion apps daily for malicious applications that can cause damage to your device and the data stored inside of it.
