Google has released the newest developer preview of android oreo. Version 8.1 are released in Dec, but android Beta Program users can test it currently. Anyone can also download and install the system images with an unlocked bootloader. The Beta Program problems these updates over the air, although the developer preview is only compatible with the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel C, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and pixel 2 XL.
Obviously, you are well aware of android Oreo’s new features. The new version builds on some of those iterations. It tests another modification to notifications within which apps will only create a notification sound alert once per second. but more importantly, it contains an Easter egg: the android oreo logo currently appears like an actual cookie.
The rest of the update likely will not impact users much at all, but 8.1 is eventually supposed to activate the hidden pixel Visual Core system-on-a-chip. The image processor is built into both new pixel phones, yet remains dormant. Google says it’ll activate it in the coming months to make image processing smoother. it’d also make HDR+ available to third-party developers.
You might not have to jump between apps just to get the best possible picture quality when you’re sharing photos through your favorite social service. You don’t have to use a Pixel 2 to see some benefits. There’s a neural network programming kit that offers hardware-boosted machine learning through frameworks like TensorFlow Lite.
Google has also spent some time fine-tuning memory use to improve performance for low-cost Android Godevices, and there’s a new kit that lets apps hand out shared memory to speed access to common data. And if you’re fond of password managers, they can make better use of Google’s Autofill framework.
