Android 8.1.0 Update Rolling Out Via Android Beta Program

10 December 2017, 03:37 | Dawn Berry

Stable Android 8.1 Oreo rolling out for Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL beta users

Android 8.1 OTA adds HD Voice Calling for Pixel 2 XL devices on ...

The Android 8.1 Oreo update for Nexus 6P also bumps up the Android security patch level to December 5, 2017.

It's hard to say in what stage of development this update is in but it's unlikely to be the final build and likely one of the interim betas leading up to it that somehow got leaked.

Samsung's only confirmed one Android 8.0 Oreo update, but the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update is just one of several upgrades the company will roll out over the course of the next year.

The new commands included in the Android Oreo 8.1 update include some necessary improvements in autofill functionality.

Miss Universe crown goes to South Africa's Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters
Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters took home the coveted crown after beating Miss Colombia - Laura Gonzalez and Miss Jamaica - Davina Bennett. In the future, the new victor from South Africa plans on using her self-defense workshops to help as many women as she can.

Under-the-hood, Android 8.1 enables the Pixel Visual Core for third-party apps, while there is support for the new Neural networks API for hardware accelerating on-device machine learning. If you are using the device, you can navigate to the device's Settings → About Phone and check for the system update manually from there. Once the volunteers test the beta update and the bugs or other issues are resolved, the stable Android Oreo update for the Mi A1 will be rolled out to all the users owning the device.

According to the report, Google Pixel XL 2 OTA measures 42.9MB in size.

This is slightly different to the Wi-Fi strength information which is already available on newer Android releases. The update will also prevent the apps from displaying invalid autofill options.

Back in September, Googler Elliott Hughes had posted on Google+ that the Check for update button had started working with updates getting shown on the smartphone once the button got clicked. Not only will you be able to hear others better, but they'll be able to hear you better too.
