Google officially announced Android Oreo OS and of course they could not miss the Factory Image, which is the official system image for the latest Nexus and Pixels. These are the complete ROMs that will allow everyone to immediately install the new official distribution of the latest Google mobile operating system.
Of course, the Factory image is always working with manual flashing. Android 8.0 Beta update via OTA is now rolling out for Pixel with and Nexus 6P smartphones. But below is the download link for those who do not want to wait for the OTA update for Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C, Pixel, and Pixel XL.
Coming to Android Oreo features: it brings several interesting features including picture-in-picture mode, which will enable users to watch a video in a resizable and movable small window top of any other app. Imagine watching a video while texting your friends. Google is also making it possible for users to create customisable channel for each type of notification, through a feature called “notification channel.”
Additionally, notification badges are coming to apps, allowing users to see the number of notification an app has cultivated — and need their attention — by just looking at an app’s icon on the home screen. Moreover, another new feature called “snoozing” will enable people to snooze a notification to make them reappear at a later, more appropriate time.
New Android 8.0 Oreo update will also improve boot speed – the time it takes from switching on the phone to reaching the home screen, the company said, claiming it would be twice as fast on its own flagship smartphone, the Google Pixel. Google is also making it easier to login to different apps, extending the autofill feature currently available on website, to apps. The much-awaited Android instant apps, which can be accessed right from the browser without requiring installation, are also set to take off with Android Oreo.
