Android Oreo is coming to smartphones on March 24.
It’s a major update that adds a new interface, better support for multitasking, better multitasking apps, and support for Android’s new File Transfer feature.
And, of course, it brings the Android 8 platform to the Nexus line of smartphones.
Below are the 10 most popular new features in the Android Oreos.1.
Multi-window support (windowed apps, not apps on the top row)2.
Screen saver mode for apps on top row3.
Better screen management and scrolling (in addition to the new FileTransfer)4.
More apps on lower-resolution displays5.
Better file transfer for smaller files6.
Improved battery life7.
Better notification support8.
Better battery life9.
Better hardware support10.
Better performanceMore features are coming to Android Oreon in the near future.
The biggest feature, of the three, is the File Transfer, which lets you transfer large files over WiFi, Bluetooth, or an NFC tag to a new phone.
Android 8 will let you send a larger file with less bandwidth, faster speeds, and fewer network charges than its predecessors.
In addition to transferring large files, you’ll also be able to share large files from multiple devices, so long as you’re using the same Android OS.
Some features will also be coming to the Android Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, and Pixel 2 tablet, which means you can use the same phone with the same apps, which will allow for faster boot-up times.
But what if you want to transfer your files directly to your Pixel, Pixel XL, or Pixel 2 Tablet?
Android 8’s File Transfer mode has also been improved to allow you to transfer files directly between Android phones, too.
In this way, you can easily transfer a file from one Android phone to another.
For example, if you’re downloading a file to your phone, you could download a file on your Android phone and transfer it to a Pixel device, or vice versa.
There’s no difference between the two methods of transferring files, so you won’t have to worry about file integrity.2.
Better Battery LifeA new feature called “Battery Life” allows you to configure the battery percentage for each app on your device.
For instance, if a file downloads slowly on your phone’s battery, you might want to increase the battery capacity by a percentage point.
If you download a lot of apps, the battery will take longer to charge.
To see how the battery usage changes over time, open the FileTransfer menu on the File Manager.3.
Faster Boot-up TimesWith File Transfer you can set the file transfer to occur automatically every time you open a new file, whether you’re running the app in background or not.
This lets you avoid the slow boot-ups you might have had in older versions of Android, and can also improve your performance by making the file transfers faster.4.
Better Hardware SupportMany Android Oreons are designed to be fully customizable, so there’s a lot to do to make a phone more powerful.
This is where the new hardware comes in.
The Pixel, for example, will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM.
But Android Oreolos will also include support for 64GB and 128GB storage options.
If your phone supports 64GB storage, the Oreo will support it too.
If it doesn’t, you will be able choose between 32GB and 64GB.
If the storage is available, you won.
For those who need a lot more storage space, the Nexus 8 will also support 32GB storage and 64 GB storage.
The Nexus 5X, meanwhile, will support 64GB, 32GB, or 16GB storage.
Android Oreo’s hardware support has improved to be more compatible with newer smartphones, as well.
You can now use Android 8 with the Nexus 5, 6, 6 Plus, Nexus 7, Pixel, and more.
And because Android Oreoms are fully customizable and can be upgraded to newer versions, you don’t have any excuse to buy a smartphone that’s only compatible with Android Oreomals.5.
New File Transfer FeatureThe File Transfer features are just a small part of Android Oreoing’s hardware enhancements.
Another big new feature in Android 8 is the file upload feature.
This allows you send files from one phone to the next.
When you open an app, you’re automatically given a URL, and the file will be uploaded to the phone’s storage.
If an app isn’t on your home screen, you have to tap the app icon in the notification bar.
Once the app is open, the file can be uploaded.
This feature is also new on the Pixel and Pixel XL.
The File Upload feature lets you share large file sizes, too, so it’ll be easier for you to share files between your phones.
This will make your phone more useful when you need to transfer large, high-quality files.6
