Android Oreo Plays Beeping Notification Sounds in Phone Calls, Annoying Many

Android Oreo Plays Beeping Notification Sounds in Phone Calls, Annoying Many

Google has released some information about the upcoming operating system, which will feature a redesigned notification center and many subtle tweaks that should lead to an overall increase in speed. When used on a device running Android O and higher, hostile downloaders can not trick the user into installing an app without having first been given the go-ahead. Read on to check if yours makes the cut.

Android users no longer need to look quite as enviously at their iPhone-toting friends, because Oreo lets apps display notification badges on their home screen icons too: From Settings tap Apps & notifications then Notifications to find the toggle switch. Because Google's software is created to run on gadgets made by dozens of companies in various parts of the world, making the software itself consistent has been a constant challenge. Google is nonetheless a reliable company that takes care of its customers and committed to keeping Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X updated with security patches until next year in September. Google is introducing Google Play Protect with Android O - a tool that will scan freshly downloaded apps on your phone for security threats - and it will also give developers a bunch of new tools to help them produce apps that make more efficient use of resources such as CPU, memory and data use in a bid to improve battery life. But it is confirmed that these smartphones of OnePlus will get the Android 8 update.

Asus has also confirmed that its 2016-series Zenfone 3 and Zenfone 4 series models will get the firmware in the form of ZenUI v4.0.

HTC has also joined the list of brands promising the Android 8.0 update for its smartphones, with the flagship HTC U11, along with HTC 10 and U Ultra first in line to get a taste of Oreo. We aren't sure what Google's thought process was here for Android Oreo, but let's hope that it gets removed or a toggle for it gets added.

After months of speculation, Android O is now officially called Android Oreo. While all four Nokia Android phones will be getting Android 8.0, we can expect Moto's 2017 range of smartphones to receive it as well. Just check out the list of phones in India that will get Android O update.

Now that Google has made Oreos the favorite cookie among Android users, the big question is whether your Android phone is going to be a recipient of the new Android OS build.

Only a number of Pixel and Nexus devices get the update for now, while the rest of users will have to wait until it's released widely. So it goes without saying Android 8.0 Oreo for Essential Phone is a definite go, along with the next major version.

Google Pixel Phones Android Oreo/8.0 update - Google Pixel Phones will get Android Oreo update. But the software's most noteworthy improvement turns out to be one Android owners won't experience firsthand.
