    Introducing Android 8.0 Oreo
    21 August 2017

    After more than a year of development and months of testing by developers and early adopters (thank you!), we’re now ready to officially launch Android 8.0 Oreo to the world. Android 8.0 brings a ton of great features such as picture-in-picture, autofill, integrated Instant Apps, Google Play Protect, faster boot time, and much more.

    We’re pushing the sources to Android Open Source Project (AOSP) for everyone to access today. Pixel and Nexus 5X/6P builds have entered carrier testing and we expect to start rolling out in phases over the next several weeks, alongside Pixel C and Nexus Player.

    Android Oreo offers of a slew of new features including background limits, notification channels and dots, Autofill APIs, Picture in Picture (see two apps at once), XML font resources, downloadable fonts, emoji compatibility, autosizing textview, adaptive icons, Webview enhancements, AAudio API, Google Play Protect, high-quality Bluetooth audio codecs, wide-gamut color for apps, security status in settings, and tighter app install controls, as well as Java 8 APIs and runtime optimizations. Google is also promising to minimize unintentional overuse of battery from apps in the background, plus OS optimizations that should lead to faster boot times (up to twice as fast on Pixel) and smoother apps. Oh, and there are a bunch of redesigned emojis, including over 60 new emojis.
