Do you have a tablet, mobile phone or any other device that operates using Android system? Chances are you do and if so, you may be interested in some of the new improvements announced by the Google I/O group at their annual conference. Among some of the announcements was the availability of the Android O beta download for the general public.
Today at the annual Google I/O developer conference, we learned about all the updates coming to the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, dubbed Android O for now—at least until its official release later this year. This is the eighth version of the OS (Android 8.0), and even though we’ve seen some of the additions in the developer preview that launched in March, there’s a whole swath of new goodies that Google highlighted at the show. So, without further adieu, here are all the new updates coming to Android.
Eager fans will be happy to know that the Android O beta is being made publicly available for download today. The build is still unstable given that it’s not an official release, so we’d recommend against installing it on your primary device if you choose to start testing it out immediately.
Most of the updates coming to Android involve little tweaks to the operating system that make it perform better and easier to control. One of the easiest places to see these changes is in the completely overhauled Settings app…
If you are one of those techy types that eagerly look forward to new updates and changes to an existing system, then you will probably welcome the announcement by Google I/O. If you’re like me, not a techy, I dread having to update and disrupt everything, but in the long run, I guess they are for the good.
