Thus the users can look forward, among other things, to longer battery run times, improved performance, and some other useful features.

Android 8.0 Oreo is the name of the eighth generation of the popular Google operating system.

"Safer, smarter, more powerful, and sweeter than ever."

Everything should become even safer, smarter, more powerful, and sweeter than ever. The best for the users is the significantly improved battery life.

This is to be achieved in particular by strongly limiting the background activity of the various apps when the device is inactive. However, what sounds very optimistic at first glance is already giving rise to initial doubts among experts.

Some apps require a permanent Internet connection to function correctly. By reloading the corresponding information when opening the application, the effect desired by Google could be neutralized in the worst case.

The marking function is even more convenient for users of Android 8.0 Oreo. For example, for telephone numbers, the call function can be selected directly in the context menu, and for e-mail addresses, Gmail can be accessed directly. Over time, this function is likely to be perfected automatically, as artificial intelligence observes and analyzes user behavior.

All friends of the popular emojis can also look forward to the new operating system. The complete range of symbols has been redesigned.

Also, numerous new emojis - 60 in total - have been added. Whether koala bears, tigers, sharks, or squirrels, especially in animals, a lot has changed.

However, it will probably be several months before all smartphone owners can enjoy Android 8.0 Oreo. It is expected that the operating system will not be available on most devices until the end of 2017.

Faster start and faster apps:

Specific optimizations should ensure that the new Android version starts about twice as fast as version 7.0 Nougat. The measures are also intended to accelerate the function of individual apps significantly. Here too, there is talk of doubling the speed.

"Google Play Protect" - Better protection against malware:

"Google Play Protect" is a new standard app to improve device security. According to Google, it continuously analyzes apps' behavior to detect malicious applications - not only those installed on your smartphone, over 50 billion apps worldwide every day.

If Play Protect finds a conspicuous candidate, it is removed from the device and Google Play. Play Protect also includes a feature that allows you to locate and, if necessary, lock or delete lost smartphones or tablets.
