Released in August of this year, the update Android 8 Oreo is still a privilege for few users. The manufacturers of smartphones, however, already has the lists of devices that will receive the update of Google’s operating system. Reduction in the consumption of the battery, the ability to view two apps on the screen at the same time and the new wizard Google are some changes.

Google announced that this version comes with two times greater speed boot compared to its predecessor, the Nougat. In addition, to improve the performance of hardware, promises to reduce the resource usage of applications running in the background. To complete the kind of resources that point to the performance, the Android 8 Oreo promises to reduce battery consumption and ensure longer battery life.
Autofill, PiP, and Google Assistant
To streamline access to applications, the Android 8 Oreo presents the feature Autofill, it autocompletes login data, provided the user allows the tool to have access to your passwords.
Another novelty that will appeal to many users is the Picture-in-Picture (PiP). Those of you who have access to this update you will be able to, for example, viewing a YouTube video, while browsing your calendar. The feature decreases the playback of the video to the bottom corner of the screen, leaving the entire rest of the display free.
