Android 8.0 Oreo: ALL NEW! -Review



In The August 21 was unveiled the final name of the new release of the green robot: Android 8.0 Oreo! We were aware of the innovations that characterize this new version for a while ‘time, however, we have decided to summarize them all (or at least the most important ones) in this article.

Adaptive Icons

Developers can now provide Google perfectly square icons that then the various OEMs can customize and apply a certain mask, so as to change the shape of the icon. Inside the Pixel Launcher settings, you can select different display options: rounded square, squircle, teardrop.

Ambient Display

Now when you receive a notification, with the help of ambient enabled display, the name of the application and some additional information will be bold  and fonts will be larger and spaced . This is to allow a more immediate understanding.

Restrictions in the background

More control over applications that continue to run in the background. The system will limit the functions when needed , so you gain a little ‘more autonomy. Even the location-based services will be limited where required .

Color Depth

There is the support for new color profiles for the display: DCI-P3 ,  Adobe RGB , Pro Photo RGB . In this way, applications can take advantage of large shades of color , enabling the rendering of images in size and quality with which it was designed.

Downloadable fonts

The applications will not need to embed custom fonts , this way you reduce the size of the app.

Installations from unknown sources

From now on you will have to authorize each application if we wanted to install file apk not from the Play Store .

Notification Channels

Henceforth each application will have different channels : in this way it is possible to mute the notifications originating from a particular application without affecting the remaining . In addition to this it is useful to note that it is possible to silence only certain types of notifications coming from the same app. Also from the pull-down notifications, performing the classic swipe, the system will allow the user to postpone the notification or disable the receipt of further messages.

The less important notifications will be displayed in a graphic less invasive and developers can choose to customize the graphics of the various messages, as was done by Spotify and Play Music.

Notification Dots

At applications with attached unread notifications you will be displayed directly above the icon a colored dot and somewhat minimal. Unfortunately no badge containing the number of notifications lost.


You can view a video or other multimedia content without having to remain on the app home, through a small box that will appear on your screenDevelopers are allowed as the implementation of playback controls, or change the aspect ratio of the screen.

API auto-password

Entering your username and password now becomes much more immediate by the ‘ auto-fill text fields. This feature will be supported at the system level and many apps will be able to benefit from it.

Audio codec

TheBluetoothh now adds support for audio codecs LDAC , APTX , APTX HD which ensure a higher quality via APIs AUDIO.

Intelligent text selection

Now when you go to select a text string containing an address or a phone number, you will see a tooltip containing a direct link to the app Google Maps, or app phone.


Google abandons the now known emoji blob to make room for the newly redesigned smilies.

Integrated within the system is Google Play Protect, which will verify the applications downloaded from the Play Store in a completely automatic way. We also find a greater start-up speed of the system as well as a greater opening speed of applications. On the boot-loop phenomenon will then be content with the functionality Rescue Party.


Supported the WiFi Aware that enables communication between nearby devices without the need for an internet connection.

Project Treble

It provides a modular structure of the operating system in such a way that the hardware manufacturers are able to provide the support of the latest versions of Android their components more quickly and easily than before.
