Google Android O stable version could roll out on August 21

Google Android O stable version could roll out on August 21

The inclusion of an octopus as an Easter egg inside the latest Android O beta suggests Google might be ditching desserts and moving to underwater molluscs instead. This will let users view the count without opening the app. Users will also get the option to turn off the notification badges for apps from the Settings app.

The LG V20 from past year was the first non-Google phone to arrive with Android Nougat preinstalled. Users can long tap on a text inside the address and the OS will automatically select the complete address.

The most noteworthy and obvious change is the new selfie "flash". So make sure your Android is running on the 4.4 update and start shooting off those selfies. This is expected to increase battery life and free up more RAM in a device.

The jump to O will bring new API functionality from Android, "as well as specific features for Android Things". However, not all apps will be supported with this feature initially.

Also, Android Police won't publish the name on its website until someone from Google corroborates the information that they've received from its source.

In addition to the double tap to zoom feature, the camera app is also adding another feature which should be useful to users - the ability to switch between the photo and video modes using a dedicated button.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Android O may debut in the second week of this month.

Google is planning to launch Android O the week of August 21st. From the looks of the final developer preview, Google is bent to deliver a major buff for the Android operating system with chunky upgrades that Android phone owners will be much agitated to try. He didn't reveal the exact date of release yet.
