How to Install Android O Beta on Eligible Phones and Tablets

According to Google's director of product management at Android, Stephanie Saad Cuthbertson, Google already uses machine learning in order to scan billions of devices and apps on a daily basis.

Android O running on Pixel will be best described in two feature clusters, or at least in the manner that Google presented version 8.0 to developers that attended this year's I/O event.

Rumors also suggest that Google is considering to remove the headphone jack in the Pixel 2.

In this week's top stories: Announcements from the Google I/O 2017 developer conference, hands-on with a new unreleased Pixel Launcher, Android O enter beta, Assistant and Google Home updates, and much more.

The Android One project did not perform well in India as expected by Google and the program partners. In its short history, Android smartphones went from a cheap alternative of the iPhone to some of the best phones on the market.

This PIP feature will support all the operating systems and will be soon on all the android devices. Google wants to finally solve the notorious Android fragmentation, which hopefully will be reduced starting with Android O.

Since it is still in its beta phase, the Android O does not necessarily work as smoothly as it should.

The Android O's WiFi Aware gives users the functionality of transferring files via WiFi connection without the use of an actual Internet connection. For Google Pixel or Pixel XL, the update will download smoothly, and after completion, you will be asked to restart the device - just like regular updates. Fluid experiences mean Picture-in-picture which offers floating window support, Notification Dots that offer a quick glance option for app icons when you have notifications, Autofill with Google for a smoother overlay and Smart Text Selection using TensorFlow Lite that adds contextual options to the copy/paste menu as well as recognising text for what it is. As the Android Developers blog states, device makers won't have to go back to its silicon manufacturers to approve updates every time-it can push them through itself. This API will allow any app or website to use the payment information stored in your Google account, instead of your Android Pay wallet.

The mystery surrounding Android O seems to have no end. We use cookies to improve your browsing experience.

Android Pay may be badly lagging Apple Pay, but that is a problem that Google's Chrome browser doesn't have versus Apple's Safari. Each Android O device comes with Google Play Protect.
