Android 7.0 Nougat successor likely to be named Oreo: Rumored Android 8.0 features

With the arrival of Android 7.0 and the imminent release of Android 7.1 Nougat, tech enthusiasts are already guessing about the forthcoming Android 8.0 O. While a large chunk of the code has been changed from Marshmallow to Nougat, the features such as multi-window looks like the same.

According to industry analysts, Android O will be modified in such a way that apps which are not needed are shut down permanently. For instance, if a user is not working with the camera, there should be a way to make sure that the app will not open. This will improve system resources to a great extent.

Integrated Google launcher and Assistant

Android O will probably integrate the Google launcher and Assistant directly into the core code. This will enable users to experience the power of both launcher and assistance. Moreover, the handsets shipped with Android O will be able to compete directly with Apple because iPhone has Siri voice assistant.

The forthcoming release of Android O will ship with new Google features that will be applicable for users from all countries and not just Americans.

Monthly patches for added security

With the arrival of Android O, you can expect monthly patches, which will most likely address security exploits. Google needs to identify the mechanism by which the phone boots including the possible changes which will occur when critical system files are changed.

Improved desktop management tools

You can expect Google to provide improved tools for desktop management. If you look at Samsung, LG they have their own tools for the management of files and backup. Google needs to reinvent the wheel and develop a tool for customers.

Even though information can be stored on the Cloud, there will be few instances where you will be restrained. In such a case, you can make use of the tool. Google will incorporate new themes and a cool status bar to easily navigate apps. There are reports that Google will launch a certified accessory program when the company launches Android O.
