Google Unveils Android O Developer Preview, With Improved Battery Life

How to get Android O Developer's preview on your phone

The latest update for Android 7.1.2 Nougat beta comes with a new multitasking user interface added to the Pixel C device. Over the years, Google has been working to improve its mobile operating system with new security features, the release of monthly security updates, and better tools to detect and remove malicious apps both on devices and in the Google Play app store. Over the course of the next several months, Google will release more updated developer previews, and they will be doing a deep dive on all things Android at Google I/O in May. But do note that the process will erase all the data from your smartphone.

The latter query specifically tells you of new messages, while the former opens a message interface that is new to Google Assistant, but has always been available in Google Now.

Recently, Chainfire, a developer famous for the Super SU utility, has announced the preliminary root available for Android O on the Nexus 5X and 6P devices.

To uninstall Android O following your trials you will need to download and flash to your device a factory image of Android Nougat.

President Trump Agreed To Change Obamacare Repeal Bill To Win Over Conservatives
Ryan said he did not know how many people would be covered but that it was more important to not require people to have coverage. The Congressional Budget Office weighed in Monday on the profound impact of the House Republicans' ambitious Obamacare fix.

The new version of the OS brings a number of improvements, most of which are in the Settings app, which is all-new. Instead of seeing the notification taking up much space, you will now see a small bar that is half in size of standard notifications. This means users can block or change the behavior of each channel individually, rather than managing all of the app's notifications together.

And if you tend to let notifications pile up, the good news is that they will automatically time out with Android O. If they're time sensitive, such as a calendar alert, then they'll disappear as soon as they're no longer relevant. The new LG G6 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 line have it, and, now, so do two other popular flagships.

Yet few Android devices can boast of impressive patch rates. One of the biggest feature is that improved battery life by limiting apps in background. Maybe, it will provide the full-fledged support in the next update for Android O.
