Android 8.0 will be released in the third quarter of 2017

04 July 2017
Development of Android 8.0 began earlier this spring with the release of the first developer version, which gave users a general idea of what to expect from the next major operating system update. And in mid-May, Google rolled out a second preview version with innovations. Last month, another version of Android rolled off the search giant's assembly line for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel C, Pixel, and Pixel XL smartphones, as well as the Nexus Player. It introduced the final version of the API and the official Android 8.0 SDK. Now it looks like the fourth, and final, developer version of the OS is due out this month for final testing by developers and enthusiasts. Google has officially confirmed that the finished version of Android 8.0 will be released in the third quarter of this year. Traditionally, the first to receive the operating system update will be the branded smartphones of the campaign, including Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Pixel C and Nexus Player tablets will also receive an update to version eight, which, incidentally, will most likely be called "Oreo". And although there is no exact OS release date yet, we can assume that it will happen in August. Android 8.0 will bring a lot of hotly anticipated features, including picture-in-picture mode, notification icons on shortcuts, autofill support, improved text selection, improved notification system and many more things that we will find out after the update.
