We do not know much about his new version Android, as growth is still at a very early stage, but we seem to see several parameterization changes. Some of these are worth mentioning:
- Picture-in-picture mode, which will allow you to watch videos while usesand other applications.
- Too many color options for developers to make better use of mobile appearance. Color options include AdobeRGB, Pro Photo RGB, DCI-P3, and more.
- Postpone notifications so they can reappear at a later time.
- Adaptive icons that can change shape depending on the device (circle and square, for example).
- Support for visual effects for Android animations.
- Apps will be able to pin shortcuts for specific actions. E.g. an icon that directly links to a specific task of yours will be able to be pinned to your home screen.

Unlike last year, when Google released Android Beta, the company will not release Android O to the general public initially (the public beta will be released in May or June).
However, if you want to install it, you need to manually shake it. You should also use one of the few supported devices, which are Nexus 5x, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C, Pixel, and Pixel XL.
The public beta as mentioned above is expected to reach May, and the final version of O in the third quarter of the year (probably with the next Pixel device release).
Meanwhile, if you are knowledgeable or quite daring, you can download the preview version of Android O from Google's developer page.
