On August 21, Google revealed that the next version of its mobile operating system, Android, is named after the world's favorite cookie - Android OREO. Google wants users to look for the "Play Protect" logo when buying a new Android device.

Inside of version 9.60 for Google Maps, Picture-in-Picture (PiP) support appears to be live for folks running Android 8.0. Developer "cory collins" has successfully booted up Android 8.0 Oreo Custom Rom on the Nexus 6. Not only are younger users skewing the curve on mobile-apps time spent (those 18-24 are spending 3 hours a day in apps, vs. 2.6 hours for 25-34, and 2.3 hours for 35-44), they're the ones who are downloading new apps.

Google provides certification for Android devices to make sure users receive secure and stable experiences.

This feature can be accessed in Settings- Apps & notification- Advanced- Special app access- Install unknown apps.

Another new feature of Android Oreo is something called Project Treble, which uses architectural changes in the OS to speed up updating processes for Android device manufacturers.

The sanctions are meant to pressure Pyongyang to end its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. The US Pacific Command, however, defined the weapons as short-range ballistic missiles.

For example, the big takeaway from the comScore report is that a slight majority users (51 percent) do not download any apps in a month.

Google took to its Indian blog to announce the new Play Protect branding for displaying certification on the packaging of Android device.

With the Oreo update, Android TV believes in channels.

Another new feature that makes navigating the interface easier.

Then go to Downloads app, and tap on the APK file and hit Install. Play Protect is Google's new security suite, and it leverages machine learning to weed out malicious apps by regularly scanning and verifying apps on customers' phones. Those with older, incompatible devices needn't feel left out, though, as they'll find a worthy, if not prefered, alternative in developer Amir Zaidi's rootless, Launcher3-based Pixel Launcher port, which was recently updated with Oreo-exclusive features and a slew of miscellaneous improvements.
