Google doesn’t slack, Android Nougat may seem like the newest thing in town, but Google has moved on. It has made its next venture Android O available for developers. There isn’t much to be said about the build as of now as it mainly includes background changes for developers.
Even then there are a few changes that are worth mentioning. It includes a picture in picture mode that will let you watch videos while using other apps. It includes a wide color gamut option for developers so that they can take advantage of the high-quality screens on our phones, including AdobeRGB, Pro Photo RGB, DCI-P3, and more. This new build will let the user snooze notifications so that they appear at a later time. It will include adaptive icons that will change shapes depending on the device and also support Android animation. And apps will also have the feature to pin shortcuts to specific actions.
Last year Google had introduced the Android beta program making its build available to a larger public. But this time it isn’t doing the same for Android O. Android O is slated to have four developers preview.
To install the Android O, you will have to flash it manually, and also have a device that is supported. The supported devices include the Nexus 5x, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C, Pixel, and Pixel XL.
The public beta is set to arrive in May and the final release of the Android O in Q3 (likely in time for some new Pixel phone. Meanwhile, if you have the skill set and if you feel adventurous to flash your device then you can head on over to Google Developer page here.
