The labels are Slow, OK, Fast, and Very Fast, with each allowing more functionality than the last.

Google may be facing low adoption rates with Android Oreo but that hasn't stopped them from rolling out exciting new features for the mobile OS. A Fast connection will give you enough stability to stream video contents in Full HD though.

Another feature Android users were expecting was the inclusion to "Turn On Wi-Fi Automatically Near Saved Networks".

Read webpages, use social media, stream music.

Slow: You will be able to make voice calls and can use Chat apps.

Google has not yet chose to include this feature universally just yet. It is the latter that has to be the preferred connection, as it will permit users to stream video contents in extremely high quality according to the guidance shared by Google. Android 8.1 Oreo might be able to tell you the speed of an internet connection, but only if that connection is not password-protected.

If you would like to get this new feature, download Android 8.1 Oreo today to try it out.

The update is expected to run faster of specific public Wi-Fi networks.

Users also have the option to disable this feature by heading to Settings, Network, Wifi, Wifi preferences and open Advanced option. One of the highlighted app was Files Go that lets users free up unwanted space, find files and more.

It was less than two months ago that Google rolled out Android 8.1 and, with it, Android Go, the super lightweight configuration-not-version of Android for extremely constrained phones. Do you think it will help knowing the WiFi network speeds before you connect to the hotspot?

Android Oreo fans will get to grips with a useful new feature in the 8.1 build that could change the way they surf the net.

As we know Nokia 8 was initially running on Android 8.0.
