Introducing Android Oreo —a celestial superhero brought to life by the solar eclipse. Android Oreo’s super powers make our lives easier. It is smarter, faster, and more powerful than ever. The world’s favorite cookie is your new favorite Android release.
It comes with new features like picture-in-picture. Auto fill to help you navigate tasks seamlessly. Stay safe and move with blinding speeds with stronger security protections and speed improvements. When you’re on your next adventure, Android Oreo is the superhero to have by your side (or in your pocket!).
Ever try checking your schedule while staying on a video call? Android Oreo makes it easy with picture-in-picture. It lets you see two apps at once: it’s like having the power to be in two places at the same time! Overwhelmed by notifications, but missing the ones you care about the most? With Android Oreo, notification dots let you tap to see what’s new in your apps — like the important ones you put on your homescreen — and then take action on those notifications quickly.
Security and battery optimization
Evildoers trying to get bad software onto your device? Android Oreo is more secure with Google Play Protect. It is built in, with security status front and center in settings, and tighter app install controls.
Battery depleted and still galaxies away from a charger? Android Oreo helps minimize unintentional overuse of battery from apps in the background. These limits keep your battery going longer.
When you’re on the go, speed is perhaps the most important superpower. With Android Oreo, you can get started on tasks more quickly than ever with a faster boot speed (up to twice as fast on Pixel, in fact). Once you’re powered up, Auto-fill on Android Oreo remembers things like logins (with your permission) to quickly get you into your favorite apps. Plus, support for Android Instant Apps means you can teleport directly into new apps, no installation needed.
Express yourself in more ways than ever
Even superheroes don’t go it alone. Android Oreo brings along a team of fully-redesigned emoji. This includes new emoji to help save the day. Share the feels with a fully redesigned emoji set, including over 60 new emoji.
