7 features to look forward to in Android O
Google is hoping its newest version of Android is sweeter than the last. This allows users to continue watching a video while executing a totally different task. Now, in Android O, users can do two of these things at once. This is supported by the hints that senior vice president of Android Hiroshi Lockheimer has been dropping on Twitter. For instance, the app icon badges were seen on iOS since its debut and the picture-in-picture mode is available on Android TV.
Developers will have several tools at their disposal; setting custom interactions (play/pause), specifying aspect ratio, and more will all be available for developers to toy with. Specifically, the icons can easily adapt to whatever environment they're in, whether on a Samsung or LG device. The latest one to get onboard with integrations is the Google search app, which now offers direct in-app access to the web apps. It's not clear yet whether, as speculated last week, apps icons will adapt to show users new information, such as the correct day on the calendar.
Additional, Google will introduce notification channels in Android O, allowing developers to group notifications together in ways not previously possible.
For the time being, it's not clear what Google will end up naming Android O - although the rumor mill does seem to be leaning towards Oreo. This features means that now you'll have autofill capabilities throughout the entire system.
Most notably, the new update brings the Pixel phone's launcher and navigation buttons to the big screen.
The goal is to make apps, both old and new, less taxing on your battery by making the limits more transparent for developers. So it will be interesting to see how Google decides to build out its software from now on to take advantage of having tighter control over its hardware design. Google indicated it will support AdobeRGB, Pro Photo RGB, and DCI-P formats, among others.
Google unleashed its Android 7.1.2 Nougat developer preview update recently and claimed that this is merely just another incremental maintenance release. Dave Burke, Google's VP of Engineering, says it is still early days and there is still plenty of performance and stabilisation work that needs to be done on the OS.
