Things You Can Do in Android Oreo That You Couldn't Before
24 August 2017, 02:52 | Denise Dawson
HTC U11, HTC U Ultra, and HTC 10 will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo
At the height of the day's solar eclipse in New York, Google finally revealed the name of its latest Android operating system - in honor of another dark disc: the Oreo. This year's devices will obviously be updated first and rest will follow.
Most Android phones are thus running software that's out of date.
Android Oreo contains the new "install unknown apps" feature: Those wicked individuals or organisations that proliferate PHAs (Potentially Harmful Apps) have gotten the sneakier and smarter into the fooling the people install them.
Android is the world's most widely used mobile operating system.
Not only is this distracting when you're in the middle of a phone call (which becomes even more of an issue if it's an important one), but it can also be an annoyance when you're in a conference call and have the speakerphone enabled. But it is confirmed that these smartphones of OnePlus will get the Android 8 update.
Your device gets the Android Oreo upgrade; you will notice that the "Allow unknown source" setting option is already gone. All the three phone are eligible for the update and htc take no time to announce that.
At the launch of the new Micromax Canvas Infinity with 5.7-inch 18:9 FullVision display, the company announced it will provide the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the handset, but again, there is no timeline for it yet. Android O is also heavily optimised for battery life optimisation, apart from startup time, graphics rendering and stability. We know HTC has started working on Android Oreo as we were told the HTC U11 would support Bluetooth 5.0 devices once the new Android OS is ready. Autofill will roll out fully over the next few weeks as part of an update to Google Play Services.
Redmi Note 4 got the Nougat update, when Oreo was getting launched (a year later). We take a look at some of the features that stand out.
In this post we'll talk about the new Install unknown apps permission and the security benefits it brings for both Android users and developers.
Shortcut pinning: App shortcuts and homescreen widgets are great for engaging users and now developers can let users add and pin shortcuts and widgets to the launcher from within your app. LG G6 is the other flagship from the company that should get the Oreo update soon after. The latest Android OS is about 2 days old and barely a few devices have received the update so far. Essentially they'll need to declare upfront that they could request permission to be able to install apps from Android's Package Installer.
