Features of Android
8.0 Oreo version

Picture-In-Picture Mode
With the new Oreo’s Picture-in-picture mode, you can be able
to shrink a video into a small, resizable box which can be kept u on top of
other windows. And to make it shrink to picture-in-picture mode, the video
playing has to be in full-screen mode. Then proceed to click on the home button
and get the box resized just by tapping it ones. Or you can choose to move the
video around your phone screen. You can as well resume playback from the
notifications shade option.

The feature is actually available in few applications such
as chrome and as well YouTube Red. If you wish to turn off the Picture-in-picture
feature, may be because you don’t like it again or doesn’t want to use it again,
then navigate to your settings menu. (Click settings from phone menu >
Apps and Notifications > Advanced > Special app access >
Picture-in-picture
and now toggle
off for each app.
That’s all and the feature will be turned off.


New Emojis

Android 8.0 Oreo Emojis feature


Android introduced and improved on emojis smiley faces for this Android Oreo version. About new 70 emojis has been added to the update; such as T-rex, vomit face, Dracula etc.

Google Play Protect
Google play protect on android Oreo is also a smart feature
that keep in check to all the apps present in Google Play Store. According to
Google, it is reportedly said that over 50 billion of apps will be scanned
daily in order to prevent malicious apps from getting installed on any user’s
phone.


Improved
Notifications
Users can Customize their phone notifications as the want
when updated with latest Android Oreo version. In this section, you will get to
see Notification dots which happens to be a subtle addition to Oreo. So when
there is a new notification or something that needs your attention, a dot like
feature appears over an app icon. Is either you open the app or you long click
on it, in other to get a quick peek at the information it has.
Instead of above notification type or you don’t want it at
all, you can simply switch off the
notification dot.

Furthermore, on the notification feature, you can as well
have more specific control over notifications using channels. For example,
using YouTube; there are 2 channels involved: the first which is download notifications and the other general notifications. Now for each of
the channels, you can customize how your Android should display notices. You
can as well enable it on the lock screen when your device is locked with
password, blink the light or even show a dot. If you want all the feature to be
active, then should enable or activate the three to function on the device.  

Smart Text Selection
Smart Text Selection, is as well added to Android Oreo
update. And the work is to enable users make best selection of relevant text; for example, Address,
phone number etc. by just double clicking over the whole text presented.

Smart Auto-Fill
Autofill is a smart filling credential feature that has been
in existence for quite long now.  it is
presently available for most smartphones running on both new and old android
mobile operating systems. As a matter of fact, the feature supports users in entering
required credentials automatically into an application; provided such
credentials have been entered before using the smartphone. So the trending Oreo
OS came with an improved smart Autofill functionality for inputting of credentials
in a right field when filling a form online or offline using your Android
phones.

This very Autofill does a default to Google smart lock. The
thing is that, if you log in to your Chrome browser on a desktop or PC, then
switch to your phone, and all the login details carry over. You can change it
to another service by navigating to Settings
> Languages and Input > Autofill service.

Now, if you open an app such as Facebook or twitter which
requires login details, just tap the login button and the autofill option with
button will pop up to automatically fill the fields with your correct usernames
and passwords. Same thing is also applicable to other several third-party apps,
as autofill will make life easier when entering or setting up your Master
password for automatic filling. The feature also allows fingerprint sensor too.

Improved Sound
Quality
The update on Android 8.0 Oreo came with “High-quality Bluetooth audio codecs” which
gives a great sound quality while playing music through a wireless audio
device. This development as am seeing it will likely remove the usage of
headphone jack in upcoming Android device. Also, there is a fair chance that
newly upcoming pixels’ devices may not come with a headphone jack.
