The latest Android 8.0 update from Google will soon arrive to our tablets and smartphones. Many expert gadget reviewers and testers claim that Google is trying to improve security with the latest update and have added a few new features for the same purpose.
If you are an average tablet user, you might be wondering what changes or additions the latest Android update will bring or how it will transform your tablet experience. However, before you start upgrading your device, it is important to have a clear understanding of the Oreo update and its features, so that you can make the most out of it. Below are a few things that make Android Oreo unique from its predecessors.
Snooze a Notification
One of the best features included in the Android 8.0 update is that it allows users to snooze notifications. Most of us prefer to dismiss notifications that we don’t have time to deal with, while some leave it undisturbed in their notification panel for later viewing. However, Android 8.0 update allows you to snooze any notification and keep it away from your notification panel for as long as you want. The notification will reappear as new at the designated time to grab your attention again.
Even though the split-screen feature in Android tablets is an incredible feature, most users prefer not to use them because they do not find it that convenient. This is where the new picture-in-picture mode will grab the attention of users. Just open the YouTube app in Android Oreo and click on a video to play it. Now as you press the Home key, the video will swiftly move into a floating box that you can position anywhere on the screen of your tablet while you tweet, surf the web, or do whatever you want.
Explore the Themed Notification
This is one of the simplest yet incredible features of the latest Android Oreo update that will certainly be an absolute treat for music lovers. Open YouTube or Google Play Music on your tablet and then slowly pull down the notification channel. Now, take a quick glance at the playback controls appearing for the app. You can see that the notification will be automatically themed to match the thumbnail or album art of the song and it also gets altered with each new video or song.
