Anyway, here are some of the top features that the new Android OS will offer:

  • New notification channel, which offers the ability to have group notifications from apps
  • Picture in Picture (PiP) it works like how videos minimize on YouTube app when we search for other videos while watching one.
  • Adaptive icons allow better customization with the UI, Android O will let users create icons, which are displayed in different shapes on the screen.
  • Background Usage Limits, reducing the background data usage and increasing battery life
